Teleios Lecture: Can We Trust the Gospels
Wednesday, April 3, 6:45 pm – 8:15 pm | Family Life Center
Is there evidence to believe the Gospels? The Gospels—Matthew, Mark, Luke, John—are four accounts of Jesus’s life and teachings while on earth. But should we accept them as historically accurate? What evidence is there that the recorded events actually happened? Dr. Williams has examined these questions in his new book, Can We Trust the Gospels?, and we’ll have a chance to hear directly from him as he presents a case for the historical reliability of the Gospels.
Dr. Peter Williams is the Principal of Tyndale House Cambridge. He also is a lecturer in Hebrew language at the University of Cambridge. He earned his M.A., M.Phil., and Ph.D. at Cambridge University studying ancient languages related to the Bible. Prior to leading Tyndale House, Dr. Williams was a Senior Lecturer in New Testament at the University of Aberdeen. He has spoken at churches, universities, seminaries, high schools, conferences, and seminars/workshops across the US and the world on Biblical subjects including Bible translation, apologetics, and how to understand the Scriptures.
Dr. Williams is a member of the Translation Oversight Committee of the English Standard Version of the Bible. He is passionate that the Bible should be well translated and carefully studied.
Looking back on his academic history, Dr. Williams describes his professional journey saying, “I find it amazing how I was led through stages of thinking I was going to do something else (be a Bible translator, OT scholar, NT scholar), only to find that I am now responsible for a library and research community in which my interests in both Testaments and in languages related to Bible study are highly useful.”
Dr. Williams was involved in summer missions for over 20 years in Belgium where he and his wife Kathryn first met. They have a son and daughter.
