Some Christians believe that the Bible is a historically reliable book; however, scholars in modern times often question its trustworthiness. Some say that there were so many errors in the transmission of the New Testament that we can't possibly know what the original text said. Many also point to recently discovered ancient writings, like the Gospel of Thomas, which present a very different picture of Jesus than the canonical Gospels. Furthermore, some of the moral teachings of the New Testament seem out of place in contemporary culture. With the Bible under attack from so many angles, should we still trust it? On March 2-3, Peace welcomes Dr. Michael Kruger, President and Professor of New Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, to address these issues with us. Please mark your calendars and join us for this free conference!
