Urban Legends of the New Testament

August 10, 2015

Was Jesus born in a stable? Was the “Eye of a Needle” a gate in Jerusalem? Did Jesus sweat drops of blood?

Dr. David Croteau, CIU professor of New Testament and Greek surveys 40 of the most commonly misinterpreted passages in the New Testament in a new book titled “Urban Legends of the New Testament.” Croteau says these “urban legends” often arise because interpreters neglect a passage’s context, misuse historical background information, or misunderstand the Greek language.

Croteau discusses his book in this online video.
