CPX: Accuracy in Oral Tradition

Prof. Craig S. Keener talks about the strong oral tradition of ancient societies, who relied on this method to pass down teaching from one generation to another. He says that Jesus' disciples would have been able to accurately memorise Jesus' teaching so that they could pass it on to others. Prof. Craig S. Keener is the author of may books and coordinator of spouse and family ministries at Asbury Theological Seminary.
