Minor characters in the Bible's accounts of Jesus

(Jesus Myths #12)

Previous: Eyewitness testimony in the Bible's accounts       Next: The main witnesses

One modern myth about Jesus is that the Bible's accounts were made up and altered during a long period when they were passed on by word of mouth. According to Professor Richard Bauckham, people in the ancient world would have recognised the Bible's accounts as biographies. Such biographies had to be based on living memory. The writers of the Bible's accounts give us different clues that they are using eyewitness testimony. One of these is when they give us the name of a minor character who does not play a central part in the story. From the series 'Jesus Myths,' exploring modern myths about Jesus. With Professor Richard Bauckham, University of St. Andrews, author 'Jesus and the Eyewitnesses.'

‘Clearly there are religious implications whenever you start to discuss the origins of the Universe. There must be religious overtones. But I think most scientists prefer to shy away from the religious side of it.’- Professor Stephen Hawking
