Richard Dawkins in The God Delusion asserts that the Gospels are not reliable accounts of what happened in the history of the real world, He claims that the Gospels were "copied and recopied, through many different Chinese Whispers generations’. Is this what happened with the Bible?

Do the Dead Sea Scrolls challenge the Bible at all? Aren’t there thousands of variations between manuscripts of the Bible? Hasn't the Bible been tampered with?

We asked Gillian Asquith (Lecturer at Melbourne School of Theology) these and more Bigger Questions.

This episode was recorded live in Melbourne in March 2017.
