For hundreds of millions of Christians around the world, Jesus is not only a prophet and miracle worker, but also the Son of God. And while our knowledge of Christ comes mostly from sources that were penned some time after his death on the cross, many accept the Bible’s accounts of his life as the truth. But just how accurate are our assumptions about Jesus? Well, some say that scripture doesn’t have all the right answers.
