However, the miraculous element, while forming an essential part of the New Testament narrative, is not extremely prominent. This is not only true in the gospels but it is also true in Acts.

Luke could hardly be accused of “miracle mongering.”. It is easy to exchange convinced assertions: “The gospels are % God’s holy Word and every bit is historically accurate!” or “The gospels are fairy tales!” However there is a discipline called “Biblical scholarship” in which scholars do some very interesting work determining just which parts of the gospels they think are reliable and which.

The historical reliability of the Gospels refers to the reliability and historic character of the four New Testament gospels as historical documents.

One of John's major purposes and themes was to correctly portray Jesus as the divine Word (or Logos) -- the pre-existent Son who is One with God (John ) and yet took on flesh in order to "tabernacle" Himself among us ().Author: Sam O'neal.
