Prof. Martin Hengel on Gospel Origins

For some time I have been planning to include some scholarly material in video format on my websites. This is now starting to appear as and when I am able to find time to review it. I was very pleased to find this material by Martin Hengel produced as part of The Christ Files documentary series. Based on a lifetime of scholarly research his answers are refreshing.
