Det. J. Warner Wallace answers the following objection: “Christians like to call the Gospels ‘eyewitness accounts,’ but why should we take them seriously as ‘eyewitness’ testimony when the authors don’t say anything about being eyewitnesses and the accounts clearly contain descriptions of events (like the virgin conception, birth narratives, and private moments of Jesus) that the authors could not have personally seen?” Can we, as police officers and detectives investigating cases in the real world, embrace the gospels as eyewitness accounts?
