This course presents a compelling study of what Jesus actually said and what he actually did based on the findings of the Jesus Seminar, which was organized in 1985 and led by Walter Funk. It was determined by this group of more than 200 professionally trained specialists that, out of the 1,500 sayings attributed to Jesus in the Gospels, just 18% were authentic and then in 1991, after examining 176 events attributed to Jesus in the Gospels, only 16% were determined to have a good chance of actually occurring. The implications of this study are profound and prompt us to change the way the gospels are read.
