The four accounts of Jesus' resurrection contain differences. What explains these differences? Are the Gospels historically trustworthy? What difference does it make?

In this episode, host Robert Martin speaks with Elizabeth Redman. Elizabeth is a journalist with News Corp Australia. Elizabeth shares some of the joys and frustrations of journalism. She also shares about journalistic conventions on how journalists report the truth. She then examines specific conventions about writing the Gospels and how these can help resolve a number of differences in the resurrection accounts that skeptical scholars like Bart Ehrman raise. Elizabeth also gives her own reasons for why the resurrection of Jesus is 'top story'.

This episode of Bigger Questions was recorded under the show's previous title 'Logos Live', in 2014.
