So this semseter we have been going over this curriculum: http://bible.org/series/historical-reliability-gospels during our Ratio Christi weekly meetings.
We have covered the first six articles and have concluded thus far that the Gospels talk about real historical places and put at the center of their narratives a real historical person (Jesus). From what we have seen the idea that the Gospels are primarliy mythological in character and portray a mythological person named Jesus who probably never existed does not hold any weight in light of the historical evdience.
We are just getting into the historical reliability of the message concerning who Jesus is according the the Gospels. I invite you to look over these articles (they are not too long) and share your thoughts.
Look forward to hearing from you!
