What Is Truth? [electronic resource]: Gospels and Their Authors

S4C (Firm)
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are generally regarded as the authors of the Gospels. But did they actually write them? And if not, who did, and when? This program focuses on accounts and theories pertaining to the identities of the four Evangelists, as well as the authenticity of the texts attributed to them. Scholars and clerics examine and discuss original manuscripts, such as Codex Sinaiticus, with its Shepherd of Hermas and the Epistle of Barnabas, and the Book of Alexandria with its first and second letters of Clement.
