Many find it impossible to believe Jesus’ words were recorded accurately because he did not write the New Testament himself and there were not mechanical or electronic methods of recording his teachings. Furthermore, surely the hand-copying over the centuries must have distorted the original manuscripts. This book presents evidence showing that the New Testament is an accurate portrayal of the life and teachings of Jesus. Echoes of Jesus is unique because it: • Illustrates how literate and historically aware the ancient civilisations were before and during the life of Jesus • Explains how it was possible for the first disciples to accurately record Jesus' life and teachings; • Provides a highly readable explanation of ancient New Testament documents and what they have to say about accuracy in copying over hundreds of years; • Discusses the content and credibility of non-Christian ancient literature that comment on Jesus and the first Christians.
