Episode 30: “Barrel Aged Gospels” with Dr. Craig Blomberg

March 26, 2017

Ready for some barrel-aged theology? Ever had a drink from Matthew, Mark, Luke & John? Anyone who grew up in the Christian church was heavily influenced by the writings from these Gospels. In fact, these ancient texts have influenced civilization for two millennia. But are they reliable? How can we trust documents from 2,000 years ago that were written many decades after the life of Jesus? Remember the game of telephone as a child? Did the earliest followers of Jesus fabricate stories of a life that never existed, or were they carefully crafting stories that are highly reliable and worthy of our respect today? Distinguished New Testament theologian, Dr. Craig Blomberg* brewed up some barrel-aged goodness on Episode 30 of the Brew Theology Podcast! If you dig this episode and other Brew Theology shows, give this episode a nice 'lil share on the interwebs, rate Brew Theology on iTunes and give BT a brewtastic review!
