  • “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.

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.

The Case was well written

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.

A must read for all Christians

Growing up as a cradle catholic, I excepted the teaching of the catholic church as the truth. This was enough for me as I believe only through Jesus Christ that I find purpose in my existence. In recent years, there is a calling for me to share my faith to my recently married wife and new to the faith, in a more complete way. If you want to make a case for Jesus (evangelize), this book is a must-read. It lays out fundamental questions that believers and non-believers have and gives an insightful answer to all questions. It gives the readers a steadier footstool to stand on and inspires the readers to share their faith.

How Old was St Joseph

Excellent short seminar behind the age of St Joseph. Well worth the purchase.

A lot of content, a LOT of help

Really love these lectures. Most of this content is not available elsewhere, which is surprising considering just how much is already on YouTube. It's awesome how deep this goes into the details of our faith

I ordered dvd I received a cd. Not happy

Hello! I just checked the order and you ordered a CD of the Faith of Abraham and the Spiritual Life. Email me so we can arrange to get you a DVD if that is what you intended.


A great listening experience!

We were giving an adult ed talk on St. Joseph and I found this talk and outline very helpful. I learned a lot and our participants did too! Thank you.

The origin of the Bible and Jesus and the end times.

Doing these as a bible time I need to order the videos instead of CD's
