  • The Case for Jesus: The Biblical and Historical Evidence for Christ
  • Are the Gospels folklore? Or are they biographies?
  • Did Jesus claim to be God?
  • What is the evidence for the Resurrection?
  • How can the four Gospels be historically true when there are differences between them?

Are the Gospels historically accurate, and can they be trusted? The bestselling author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist provides an answer that will shock readers and undermine more than 100 years of biblical scholarship. 

Over the past hundred years, scholars have attacked the historical truth of the Gospels and argued that they were originally anonymous and filled with contradictions. In The Case for Jesus, Brant Pitre taps into the wells of Christian scripture, history, and tradition to ask and answer a number of different questions, including:

  • If we don't know who wrote the Gospels, how can we trust them?
  • How much faith should be put into these writings?
  • Were the four Gospels really anonymous? 
  • Were the four Gospels written too late to be reliable?
  • What about the so-called “Lost Gospels,” such as “Q” and the Gospel of Thomas?
  • Is Jesus divine in all four Gospels? Or only in John?
  • Did Jesus fulfill the Jewish prophecies of the Messiah?
  • Why was Jesus crucified?

As The Case for Jesus will show, recent discoveries in New Testament scholarship, as well as neglected evidence from ancient manuscripts and the Early Church Fathers, together have the potential to pull the rug out from under a century of skepticism toward the apostolic authorship and historical truth of the traditional Gospels. 

With an Afterword written by Bishop Robert Barron.


“This book will prove to be a most effective weapon… against the debunking and skeptical attitudes toward the Gospels that are so prevalent, not only in academe, but also on the street, among young people who, sadly, are leaving the Churches in droves.” – Bishop Robert Barron, author of Catholicism

    The Case for Jesus

    The book was very informative and held my interest. I wished that the author had gone into certain areas and thoughts in more detail. Each time he said he didn't have enough room, I wished he had as those were the times I wanted more out of the explanation. That being said, I recommend this as it is definitely insightful and strengthened my belief in a world where you hear over and over that Jesus was just a teacher....which drives me to prove them all wrong.
