Publisher's Summary

After a century of scholarship discounting even the possibility of knowing the Jesus of history, more and more contemporary scholarship is accepting the historicity of the Gospels and defending their reliability. LaGrange writing in the 1920s was the first to expose the prejudices and misconceptions of the German scholarship that rejected the miracles of Jesus and credibility of the believers' testimonies captured in the New Testament.

Rev. Murphy-O'Connor does this in this riveting series of talks. He defends the historicity of the virgin birth, the miracle stories and major events of the Gospel narratives. He explains the differences in content and style of the writers and dispels much of the cynicism that has dominated academia for the past 100 years. His insights, however, are far from commonplace and his explanation of the events recounted is fresh and provocative. The most well-read listener will come away from this series of talks with a greater knowledge of Jesus and a deeper desire to build up the body of Christ on Earth, the community of loving believers.
