Pate demon- strates that a critical analysis of the gospel text along with histori- cal and cultural methods of investigation actually point toward an orthodox view of Christ. This work argues that the canonical Gospels are the most trustworthy information we have about the gospel writers as well as the life and ministry of Jesus including His death visit to hades resurrection and ascension. Readers will be encouraged by the reliability of the gospel writers the reality of Jesus humanity and deity and the inferiority of the apocryphal gospels. Questions include What Are Various Views of the Historical Jesus Was Jesus Really Born of a Virgin Did Jesus Do Miracles as a Child Who Was Responsible for Jesus Death What Do We Learn About the Historical Jesus from Archaeology C.
