At Christmas—what we can believe about the Bible

For centuries the authenticity of the Bible went unquestioned in the Christian Church. But within more recent history, debates have developed about the "historical accuracy" of the Bible. Scholars have published numerous views, for example, on what has come to be called "the quest for the historical Jesus." Questions range from "What are the exact words of Jesus?" to "Was there really a historical man, Jesus?"

At Christmastime, this kind of debate no longer seems academic to us. We read "the Christmas story," the account of Christ Jesus' birth as recorded in the Gospels, and want this deeply moving, beautiful story to be true (Our heart assures us that it is.)
