Does a better understanding of the history of Jesus help us to better understand the Christ of faith?
We speak with author, archeologist, and scholar Dr. L. Michael White, about the historical facts and evidence that speaks to the existence of Jesus.
Dr. White explains how while no physical evidence exists from Jesus' time, the consensus amongst scholars suggests that Jesus was indeed a historical figure and discusses references to his life in writings from historians who came after his time.
Also, he shares insight on how Jesus' story and teachings spread and transformed over time to become Christianity as we know it today.
