The Lack of Unbiased Evidence for Jesus
by Stephen Bedard
When I speak to critics and skeptics, it is common to hear comments about the lack of unbiased evidence for Jesus from the first century. They reject the New Testament evidence for Jesus as biased and point out that we lack the unbiased evidence for Jesus that as historians we would want. I have all sorts of things I could say about the historical value of the New Testament despite the bias, but I am not going to go there.
I want to take a moment to think about this complaint about the lack of unbiased evidence. What exactly would that look like?…
