Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony (2006 Bauckham), book
From 4 Enoch: The Online Encyclopedia of Second Temple Judaism
Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony (2006) is a book by Richard Bauckham.
"This book argues that the four Gospels are closely based on the eyewitness testimony of those who personally knew Jesus... Richard Bauckham challenges the prevailing assumption that the accounts of Jesus circulated as "anonymous community traditions," asserting instead that they were transmitted in the names of the original eyewitnesses."--Jacket.
