What’s in a name? Evidence!
How do we know that the writers of the Gospels and Acts were eyewitnesses? One way we can tell is through a study of names in the New Testament. It may sound boring, but it’s actually fascinating. Dr. Richard Bauckham has done most of the work for us, and his conclusions are actually changing New Testament scholarship. Frank explores just one piece of evidence in Dr. Bauckham’s 700-page book. When you compare the names in the Gospels and Acts to names from other sources in and around Israel at the time, what do we find? Evidence that is quite compelling that the Gospels and Acts contain eyewitness testimony! If you want to send us a question for the show, please email us at Hello@CrossExamined.org.
