POM: Anthony Le Donne – The Gospels as Memories of Jesus


"what we do is we narrativize our perceptions of time, and create these stories that makes sense to us. and this is exactly what's happening in the gospels."
– Anthony Le Donne

"On this episode, Pete and Jared speak to New Testament scholar Anthony Le Donne about The Gospel as memories of Jesus rather than strictly speaking 'historical' accounts. Le Donne is the author of several books on Jesus and the Gospels and also edits the Journal for the Study of the Historical Jesus."
