When: 7 pm, Thursday 28th September 2017
Where: Classroom 3 (ground floor), Tabor College, 181 Goodwood Road, Millswood. Carpark entry from Mitchell Street.
The four gospels are anonymous, but are traditionally ascribed to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Were they written close to the events, or were they written a long time afterwards, based on Chinese whispers and accumulating legends? Brian Schroeder will discuss the debates over the authorship and dating of the New Testament gospels. This will include theories regarding
- When was each gospel written?
- Who wrote each gospel?
- What sources did each author use?
- Where was each gospel written from?
- To whom was it addressed?
