In this blast from the past, J. Warner finishes his examination of the ancient non-canonical writings to see what they say about Jesus. In this episode, J. Warner examines some of the better known (and more controversial) non-canonical texts: The Gospel of Judas, the Gospel of Thomas, and the Gospel of Philip. What does the non-canonical tradition tell us about the true life of Jesus? Why would these writers twist the truth in the first place? Can we have confidence in the New Testament canon?
For more information about the reliability of the New Testament gospels and the case for Christianity, please read Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels. This book teaches readers ten principles of cold-case investigations and applies these strategies to investigate the claims of the gospel authors. The book is accompanied by an eight-session Cold-Case Christianity DVD Set (and Participant’s Guide) to help individuals or small groups examine the evidence and make the case.
