Title: HISTORICAL JESUS: FACT AND FICTION DISC 1 OF 5
The Jesus Seminar approach to understanding the historical Jesus is totally devastated by Murphy-O'Connor's presentation. After a century of scholarship discounting even the possibility of knowing the Jesus of history, more and more contemporary scholarship is accepting the historicity of the Gospels and defending their reliability. LaGrange writing in the 1920s was the first to expose the prejudices and misconception of the German scholarship that rejected the miracles of Jesus and credibility of the believers' testimonies captured in the New Testament. An ever-growing cross section of contemporary scholarship is accepting and enlarging Lagrange's arguments. Rev. Murphy-O'Connor does just this in this riveting series of talks. He defends the historicity of the virgin birth, the miracle stories and major events of the Gospel narratives. He explains the differences in content and style of the writers and dispels much of the cynicism that has dominated academia for the past 100 years. He challenges the listeners to be the answer to humanity's universal cry for justice and love in this world. There are 8 hours of talks on 5 CDs. Disc 1 of 5 is 42 minutes.
