After reading lecture 14, I now understand why there are a few people who don’t believe in Jesus. Between what the bible says and from what scholars say, the two can contradict each other. With this contradiction, I would see why someone would not want to follow up on the bible. From my understanding, I feel as if all religions are somewhat connected. They all reference someone from the bible. From the Catholics, Jews, Baptist, Christian and Muslim etc.. They all have some biblical connection of some sort. Scholars who continue to research and find ways that the bible may have been proven wrong. There are scholars who did the same research and proved ways of stating the bible is of truth. Even if the truth may have been extended a little, it still has historical facts.
