Life and Faith: Conspiracy theories

Darrell Bock from Dallas Theological Seminary discusses competing accounts of the “historical” Jesus.

Theories about the historical Jesus – whether revolutionary Jesus, Jesus being elevated into God by his followers, or Jesus’ wife – abound, and seem to hold an endless fascination for us. Darrell Bock is Professor of New Testament Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary, and has written more than thirty books on biblical topics, including the popular Breaking the Da Vinci Code. He talks to CPX about some recent, and some perennially popular, theories that challenge traditional Christian ideas about Jesus and the Bible.
