Every Christmas or Easter, there is bound to be a special documentary airing on television that claims to have unearthed the truth about the real Jesus. Implied in that premise is that the Jesus we read about in the New Testament is different than the one who existed in history. And it begs a few important questions. How certain are we that Jesus actually walked on this planet? Are the Gospel accounts trustworthy? What about all of the discoveries and scholars who think the real Jesus is not at all like the one we worship? We are joined by Dr. Darrell Bock, a highly-respected scholar, theologian, and historian, who helps us think about the historical Jesus and how confident we can be in the stories told about him in Scripture.
