How do we know what Jesus taught? Can we trust the Gospels? Whose interpretation is correct? Is it just opinion? This course explains what Jesus taught is what we believe.
This course explains how Jesus formatted his teachings for accurate recall by his disciples. It also explains how the historic Church accurately passed down this information in a way that it could be verified. It will cover issues such as the reliability of the Gospels, how we know our copies of the New Testament are accurate, and how we know we have the correct books in our Bibles.
