The Gospel According to Carrier

The Gospel According to Carrier is a two part documentary style interview with historian and author, Dr. Richard Carrier on the development of Gospel and the creation of the literary iteration of Jesus. Carrier argues that the intention of the original Gospel writer was to sell a message and not to establish a historical biography. The videos were produced by 11th Story. Music by Rob McWilliam.
