Does the New Testament reflect what He said?

Can we trust what he says?

New York Times bestselling books have taken the view that the oldest New Testament documents paint a very different picture to later copies. Others are of the opinion original gospel accounts were never intended to be historically accurate.

Many people assume that the bias of original NT authors distorted their recollections of Jesus, and Jesus’ words were not put into written form for several decades, allowing distortion to occur.

What would you say?

What do you believe and why?

Echoes of Jesus is a very insightful and much-needed book in the area of apologetics. I plan to use it as a text in Australia’s only theologically-accredited Apologetics to Islam course run at the Melbourne School of Theology.

For anyone interested in the truth claims of Christianity, this book by Jonathan Clerke is a helpful and interesting read and an excellent resource. Based on extensive, robust and systematic research of primary and secondary sources, the author persuasively argues that the New Testament accurately and faithfully records what Jesus said and taught in his lifetime.

This book is a “must get” for anyone interested in “digging deeper” on their journey through the New Testament. I will be recommending “Echoes of Jesus” to my students and church friends as it invites its readers to carefully study in order to carefully apply.

This well written work on the biblical account of the historical Jesus exposes the reader to key issues that are often overlooked in popular Christian apologetics. It raises the believer's confidence levels in the reliability of the Gospels and the apostolic writings, and should be taken seriously by scholars.
