Long Description
'Jesus and the Eyewitness' argues that the four Gospels are closely based on the eyewitness testimony of those who knew Jesus. The author challenges the assumption that the accounts of Jesus circulated as 'anonymous community traditions', asserting instead that they were transmitted in the name of the original eyewitnesses. To drive home this controversial point, Bauckham draws on internal literary evidence, the use of personal names in first-century Jewish Palestine, and recent developments in the understanding of oral tradition. Jesus and the Eyewitnesses also taps into the rich resources of modern study of memory, especially in cognitive psychology, refuting the conclusions of the form critics and calling New Testament scholarship to make a clean break with this long-dominant tradition. Finally, Bauckham challenges readers to end the classic division between the 'historical Jesus' and the'Christ of faith', proposing instead the 'Jesus of testimony' as presented by the Gospels. Sure to ignite heated debate on the precise character of the testimony about Jesus, Jesus and the Eyewitnesses is a groundbreaking work that will be valued by scholars, students, and all who seek to understand the origins of the Gospels.

As our site has grown, we have gotten more requests for data and image downloads. When we were small we handled these by hand and then later added a little automation. Now we have cleaned it up and made it easier to use.

Today we made it easier to see what it is we have to offer by cleaning up the look of the download page. We present more information to users before they log in to the system.

We cleaned up the purchase section of the page a great deal. Our downloads are not free (except for the sample data) and in the past, each download had to be purchased one at a time. now you can select multiple items and pay just once.

We made our pricing considerably easier to understand. We have always given discounts if you have already made a purchase. But it could be a little confusing because if you hand't purchased, you would see one price (the full price). But after your purchase you could return to the download page and see different prices. This confused people and they though that they over paid. Now the full price is displayed clearly all the time and instead of showing reduced prices, we now list a DISCOUNT as part of your order. And in your transaction history, your discount will always be visible to you.

Finally, we made it easier to get to your download once you have made a purchase. Right in your transaction history, the links to your downloads are easier to understand. When you download a file, the system will know if you have successfully downloaded, you are in the process of downloading, or if you ran into issues while downloading (or canceled). The status of your download is clearly identified.

We hope that these changes make the download page easier for you to use and understand. Feel free to send us your feedback about the page.
