Professor NT Wright
Witnesses*: Professor NT (Tom) Wright explores the historical evidence that supports the New Testament as evidence of events that took place 2000 years ago. Tom will argue that the gospel records represent reliable historical evidence of real events witnessed by real people and that arguments to the contrary are now so discredited as to be regarded as fanciful by any serious historian.
Professor NT (Tom) Wright is a leading New Testament scholar and authority on the historical evidence for the resurrection. He was the Bishop of Durham (2003-2010) and is now Senior Research Fellow at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford. Tom is a prolific writer and author of over eighty works including 'The Resurrection of the Son of God' considered by many to be the seminal Christian work on the resurrection of Jesus.
