Synopsis: Journalist and biblical scholar Robert J. Hutchinson explores contemporary academic discoveries about Jesus Christ and the Gospels that refute what liberal scholars have assumed and asserted about Jesus over the past two centuries.

From the Author: This is a book about new discoveries in the search for Jesus of Nazareth. It's an overview of recent archaeological finds and new developments in Biblical scholarship that are calling into question much of what skeptical scholars have assumed and asserted about Jesus over the past two centuries.

It argues that many of the "scientific" or scholarly ideas about Jesus paraded in the media every Christmas and Easter are increasingly obsolete, based on assumptions, theories and unproven hypotheses that are, in some cases, more than a century old and which have been superseded by more recent research.

Among the recent developments discussed in this book are:

  • the 2012 announcement of the discovery of seven previously unknown New Testament papyri--one of which, from the Gospel of Mark, that may date to the first century;

  • the 2009 discovery of a first-century stone house in Nazareth that refutes one of the key arguments used by those who say Jesus never existed;

  • a young secular scholar in the UK who recently argued that the Gospel of Mark was written not forty or fifty years after Jesus' death, as many scholars have claimed for at least a century, but more like five or ten;

  • recent excavations in Israel that have uncovered archaeological proof of the existence of key figures mentioned in the New Testament, including the high priest Caiaphas and possibly James the Just;

  • new research that suggests belief in Jesus as a divine savior arose very early, within a year or two of the Crucifixion, not fifty to one hundred years as academic researchers used to claim in the twentieth century;

  • the recently discovered Hebrew-language tablet dating back to the early first century that speaks about a messiah who would suffer, die, and perhaps rise again in three days;

  • Jewish experts who insist that the gospels show Jesus was not an "illiterate peasant," as some historians and popular writers have claimed, but was likely a highly trained and knowledgeable rabbi;

  • leading New Testament researchers who challenge the notion that Jesus was a "zealot" who sympathized with efforts to overthrow Roman rule;

  • a top New Testament scholar in the UK who insists that the gospel accounts are based on eyewitness testimony tied to named individuals, not based on anonymous reports that circulated over decades as scholars once thought;

  • new studies that argue the gospels' version of the crucifixion--that Jesus was arrested on trumped-up charges of sedition because he openly challenged Temple authorities--may be far more historically accurate than previously believed; and

  • the growing recognition that the Gnostic gospels the Christian church allegedly suppressed were actually written one hundred to three hundred years after Jesus, and are in some cases openly misogynistic.

In the end, these new discoveries are causing some experts to wonder if the basic portrait of Jesus in the gospels is far more plausible than the elaborate reconstructions created by academic skeptics over the past 150 years.

In other words, the New Testament may be truer than we thought... and Jesus of Nazareth, rather than being smaller than the gospels portray him, may actually be much bigger... and far more interesting.

Book Description Thomas Nelson Publishers, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Special ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. For more than a century, Bible scholars and university researchers have been systematically debunking what ordinary Christians believed about Jesus of Nazareth. But what if the most recent Biblical scholarship actually affirmed the New Testament? What if Jesus was not a Zealot revolutionary, or a Greek Cynic philosopher, or a proto-feminist Gnostic, but precisely what he claimed to be: the divine Son of Man prophesied in the Book of Daniel who gave his life as a ransom for many? What if everything the Gospels say about Jesus of Nazareth--his words, his deeds, his plans--turned out to be true? Searching for Jesus changes what if? to what is, debunking the debunkers and showing how the latest scholarship supports orthodox Christian belief. Bookseller Inventory # AA89780718077976
