About this Quiz & Worksheet

While many believe that the four New Testament Gospels offer a record or history of the life of Jesus, historians often view these accounts as texts meant to inspire faith rather than to record actual historical events. Scholars have long been studying more than 50 other gospels written by contemporaries of Jesus, as well as other ancient documents, for information that provides an objective record of the life of Christ. This quiz/worksheet combo outlines the life of Christ as described in the New Testament, and will help you understand this record as the foundation of Christianity.
