CP 261


• Are the Gospel's testimony reliable?  How do we know?

• What do the prophet Jonah and Jesus have in common?

  • “This book will prove to be a most effective weapon… against the debunking and skeptical attitudes toward the Gospels that are so prevalent, not only in academe, but also on the street, among young people who, sadly, are leaving the Churches in droves.” – Robert Barron, author of Catholicism

    For well over a hundred years now, many scholars have questioned the historical truth of the Gospels, claiming that they were originally anonymous. Others have even argued that Jesus of Nazareth did not think he was God and never claimed to be divine.

    In The Case for Jesus, Dr. Brant Pitre, the bestselling author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist, goes back to the sources—the biblical and historical evidence for Christ—in order to answer several key questions, including:

    • Were the four Gospels really anonymous?
    • Are the Gospels folklore? Or are they biographies?
    • Were the four Gospels written too late to be reliable?
    • What about the so-called “Lost Gospels,” such as “Q” and the Gospel of Thomas?
    • Did Jesus claim to be God?
    • Is Jesus divine in all four Gospels? Or only in John?
    • Did Jesus fulfill the Jewish prophecies of the Messiah?
    • Why was Jesus crucified?
    • What is the evidence for the Resurrection?

    As The Case for Jesus will show, recent discoveries in New Testament scholarship, as well as neglected evidence from ancient manuscripts and the early church fathers, together have the potential to pull the rug out from under a century of skepticism toward the traditional Gospels. Above all, Pitre shows how the divine claims of Jesus of Nazareth can only be understood by putting them in their ancient Jewish context.

The Best Study Hands Down!!!

If you want facts, this book is for you. However, to love God is to know God, and this book will deepen your relationship with Jesus regardless of what stage you're in. Just watch what the Truth does to your heart. Dr. Pitre has become my absolute favorite to read and listen to for studying scripture. I’m amazed every time and can’t get enough! I will be reading The Case for Jesus a second time to take notes for better cognition. I can’t recommend this book enough, you will Not be disappointed.

Not Sure Yet

I'm stuck on the very first claim about the authorship of the Gospels. The NAB Introduction to the Gospel of Mathew on the current USCCB website states that the author of is unknown. So I'm confused as to how having a title confers authorship. Erman is relentless in pursuit of his Anti-Gospel of Prosperity (his own prosperity) and having read all the footnotes, I am still confused. I must move on to the rest of the book, but I'm stuck.

Wonderful book will have to read and re-read it until it becomes part of my own understanding so as to speak it in my own way.

The Nature of Man, the Nature of the Fall

This program provides great insight into the nature of Man and the nature of the Fall. All is well, the New Adam has conquered.
