The teachings of Jesus Christ have influenced millions of people in the 2,000 years since he lived. But in recent times, many skeptics of Christianity have questioned whether the four Gospels—Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John—can be trusted as true accounts of his life and teaching. Where do the Gospels come from, and how can we be sure they are an accurate record of historical events?
On Thursday, March 24 at 7 p.m., Catholic Answers author and apologist Jimmy Akin will debate Bart D. Ehrman on the topic “Are the Gospels Historically Reliable?” Be sure to join us for what is sure to be an exciting and informative exchange.
