047: Understanding and Defending Differences in the Gospels (w/ Dr. Mike Licona) February 20, 2020

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I’m joined by Dr. Mike Licona to discuss so-called irreconcilable differences in the Gospels. Are there mistakes in the New Testament accounts of Jesus? What should Christians make of these problems?

Dr. Licona, Associate Professor of Theology at Houston Baptist University, sits down with me to talk about some of the most pressing and current criticisms of the New Testament and the so-called problems with the Gospel writers narratives. It’s a fantastic and fascinating conversation and based on decades of writing, research, and rigorous debate, Mike presents a great case for the reliability and reality of the historical Gospel accounts.
