Week 8:

1.      What can we know factually about the historical Jesus? What are the limitations placed upon our knowledge? How can historical and critical study aid us in a more complete understanding of the Jesus tradition? Do you think it is possible that Christ was not a real person? If there are things about his life that are not historically true is the Jesus narrative that has been handed down to us enough?

How is it like or unlike the other Gospels? What are some of the major points that are emphasized in the Gospel and what does it tell us about Jesus? Why do these Gospels survive in their use today while other early Christian scripture do not?
