Who really wrote the Gospels? Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John? Or were they written by people who were utterly unconnected with the eyewitnesses as some books and TV shows claim? Were they written so long after Jesus’ death and resurrection, that they are not reliable? Were there gospels that were included in the New Testament—and later removed? Why were these books chosen and not others?
This pamphlet gives reasons to trust the New Testament writings, and provides answers to Bart Ehrman’s bestseller Misquoting Jesus: The Story Behind Who Changed the Bible and Why. Author Timothy Paul Jones, Ph.D., shows where the critics are incorrect and provides us with a logical, well-reasoned arguments for believing that Jesus lived, died, and rose again—according to the Scriptures. Now is the time to discuss textual criticism, because critics are bringing this to the public debate and claiming that the Bible cannot be trusted.It is important help Christians become better informed — ready to "defend the faith."
Dr. Jones' interest in this topic began many years ago when he came across arguments against the Bible. At first his faith was badly shaken and he wondered if he still believed in the Bible. But as he researched more he found answers. In just fourteen concise pages, Dr. Jones shows the errors in critics’ logic and facts —and does it in an easy-to-understand style.
Pamphlet is 5.5 inches x 8.5 inches and unfolds 38 inches. Fits inside the cover of most medium size Bible covers.
