In this podcast, Jim begins to examine the ancient non-canonical writings to see what they say about Jesus. Are these documents alternate eyewitness accounts? Do they express the truth about Jesus, lost over the centuries? Are there any good reasons for us to trust what they have to say, and do they agree with the New Testament documents in any way?

In this podcast, Jim answers listener email related to the nature of Jesus. How are we to understand the relationship between Jesus' humanity and His divinity? If there were times when He failed to use His divine power, does this mean that He lacked the power of God? Also, how do we know that the Gospels we have today are the same as the Gospels written in the 1st century?

The first century Jews knew better than to place their worship or adoration in anything other than the God who created the Universe; to do so would be to break the first commandment of God. Yet it seems that those closest to Jesus were eager to worship Him as God. What impact does this have on our understanding of the nature of Jesus?
