Friends, I wanted to share a link with you all about a unique Christmas present opportunity. It’s a way you can both honor friends, family, or those who have influenced you and preserve unique, handwritten pages of the New Testament at the same time. I’ve done this for my parents. Mom went to be with the Lord last January and Dad doesn’t want any more stuff in his life. This is a way to give him a Christmas present that doesn’t clutter his home. (I’m sure he won’t know about this until I tell him.) You may wish to honor a beloved teacher, parent, child, friend, or even an author/speaker who has shown you the importance of the word of God.
Click on the link below to find out how to put the honoree’s name on a special Internet page; the honorees will be listed on Christmas Eve.

I have a question for you Dr. Wallace: Why do so many evangelical/conservative Christian scholars perpetuate the falsehood that “the majority of scholars believe that eyewitnesses wrote the Gospels”? William Lane Craig makes this claim all the time, but I recently listened to Mike Licona’s debate with Bart Ehrman and Licona repeats this claim as if it were a well-known fact (and Ehrman scolded him for making this unsubstantiated claim). How can a scholar of Mike Licona’s caliber make such a blatant error? Even respected Christian scholars such as NT Wright and Roman Catholic scholar Raymond Brown question the eyewitness authorship of the Gospels.
I don’t have a problem with conservative Christians claiming that a majority of conservative Protestant Christian scholars believe that eyewitnesses authored the Gospels, but when they state “The majority of scholars/critical scholars believe that eyewitnesses authored the Gospels” this is disingenuous at best, and an outright lie at worst. The majority of ALL New Testament scholars absolutely do NOT believe that eyewitnesses wrote the Gospels. Even conservative scholar Richard Bauckham admits this in his book, “Jesus and the Eyewitnesses”. Bauckham believes that this majority opinion is wrong, but he does not try to hide the fact that this majority scholarly opinion exists.
In this era of blatant lying and “fake news” wouldn’t you agree that it is important that discussions regarding New Testament scholarship should remain honest and based on facts?
