Dear Catholic.com visitor: Summer is here, and you may be thinking about a well-deserved vacation, family get-togethers, BBQs with neighborhood friends. More than likely, making a donation to Catholic Answers is not on your radar right now. But this is exactly the time we most need your help. The “summer slowdown” in donations is upon us, but the work of spreading the gospel and explaining and defending the Faith never takes a break. Your gift today will change lives and save souls for Christ this summer! The reward is eternal. Thank you and God bless.

The Reliability of the Gospels

Why can we trust the New Testament gospels of Scripture? How can we be certain that they are true and historically accurate?

Questions Covered:

  • 21:30 - Parts of Scripture are not historically accurate. How would Jesus have spoken with Moses at the Transfiguration? 
  • 30:33 - We read in Scripture that Jesus instituted the sacraments, but John was baptizing before Jesus, so what does that mean? What was baptism for the people before Jesus?  
  • 35:07 - Is there any information on Jesus outside of the gospels from that time period? 
  • 41:46 - How can I explain to my daughter why the Bible is a reliable and valid source? 
  • 48:58 - How do you understand and answer for the different accounts of the crucifixion?
