The Gospels Real and Imagined

Dr. Mark Goodacre is a New Testament scholar who is amazing at getting people to investigate that which is thought to be "fact" by both the historic Christian community and academic community. This conversation starts with some easy questions like, "Was Jesus a carpenter?" and "Was Mary Magdalen a prostitute?" Then the topics dive into the technicalities of how the gospels were written and if there are mysterious "Q" texts and what (if anything) the Gospel of Thomas has to do with the gospels.
