The New Testament Gospels tells us almost everything we know of Jesus, his life and his teachings. This class will consider how and why we have four Gospel accounts and what they teach us about Jesus’ life, his message and the impact he had on those who surrounded him during his life. We will also consider how and why billions of people over the past two millennia have believed these accounts of Jesus as having been the incarnate Son of God himself.
