Jesus was a man of few words, simple words, and a deeply challenging message. However, through the years his words and message have been clouded with additions and retractions. How can we possibly know the words he spoke? What were his original teachings? Where did his message stop and the many changes begin?
Hidden in the gospels themselves are the source materials containing the original message preached by Jesus. Before the gospels were written, there were proto-gospels, notes, lists, and collections of sayings used to construct the gospels we have today. By examining history, language, and content we can cut through additions and retractions to extract the earliest source materials and examine the true words and teachings of Jesus.

does paint a very different picture of the Bible and the people who wrote it when you go to Sunday school they tell you these people wrote these books and they walked with Jesus and then you find out that none of them actually walked with Jesus and the people who were supposedly wrote the books didn't actually write the books about 90 years after Jesus was dead and gone My life is a lie

A valuable companion for theological studies
Went through first time to just listen, 2nd and each new reading only helps to pinpoint specific thoughts pulled to create the new testament from what were deemed heretical writings, turns out most of the new testament is based off of these sayings.

I was hoping for more
I gave this three star simply because it is fine. I was really hoping for something more user-friendly and with commentary. The commentary was brief. I think I would like this better if I had a hardcopy.
