Watched Lecture 5 - The New Testament as History from Introduction to the New Testament History and Literature

The accounts of Paul‚Äôs travels in The Acts of the Apostles and Galatians seem to contradict each other at many points. Their descriptions of a meeting in Jerusalem‚Äďa major council in Acts versus a small, informal gathering in Galatians‚Äďalso differ quite a bit. How do we understand these differences? A historical critical reading of these accounts does not force these texts into a harmonious unity or accept them at face value. Instead, a historical critical reading carefully sifts through the details of the texts and asks which of these is more likely to be historically accurate.
