Questions & Answers
Dr. Pate has heard many questions surrounding who Jesus was/is along with questions about the Gospels, which are the records of Jesus’ life & ministry from the perspective of his disciples.
Of course, there are certainly more than 40 questions being asked regarding Jesus, but Dr. Pate has addressed 40 specific questions that deal with the history of Jesus & the records of Him.
First things first, this is a comprehensive text. It is complete in that these 40 questions are fully addressed & examined. It would be easy to sugar-coat some of these questions, but Dr. Pate does due diligence in making sure they garner the attention they are asking for.
Secondly, this text is academic. Therefore, this could serve as a textbook along with the gospels in a classroom setting. It is historical in nature, so there is a lot of background & research done to make this text viable across the board.
Thirdly, the approach taken by Dr. Pate is skewed toward his theological understanding & leanings but he does present other views based on the nature of the questions.
If you are looking for clarity on some similar questions that you have or even want to dab in apologetics to some degree, this could be a great place to start & examine questions of the Divine.
