Episode 19 – Synoptic Gospels (Synoptic Problem and Historical Criticism)

History of ChristianityThis is a continuation of the course on Jesus in the Synoptic Gospels that I taught at Tyndale University College. In this section, we look at the synoptic problem, various forms of historical criticism, the three quests for the historical Jesus and the criteria of authenticity.

The book I recommend is this book that was used as part of the students’ take home exam. It gives a good summary and interaction with the most popular solutions to the synoptic problem.
