You know those ‘Deleted Scenes’ sections on DVDs? Well, this is the same, only from a book.
This is the original version of a section in the book on the sources for a historical study of Jesus’ last week. In the end, due partly to contraints of space and partly to the fact that it tended to slow the opening of the book down, I simplified this right down.
But I’m making it available here as it contains a (slightly) more in-depth argument about the veracity of some of the historical information. I’ve tried to resist the urge to rewrite the text; please note, therefore, this is from an earlier draft so hasn’t been completely proof-read!
