The Burial of Jesus: History and Faith
In The Burial of Jesus: History and Faith, Dr. James F. McGrath seeks to introduce a general audience to the methods historians apply to the study of the life of Jesus. Topics addressed include: how historical study work (and why historians regularly explore possibilities that religious believers find shocking); why Jesus' disciples would have wanted to steal his body from the tomb; why later Gospel authors changed elements in Mark's earlier version; and why Christian faith in the resurrection cannot be about what happened to a body almost 2,000 years ago.
