It will not be difficult to see the common purpose of these Studies. Read only the critics, whether Rationalist or Christian, and it would seem that the Gospels must always be surrounded by at least some element of doubt. Read the Gospels themselves, and they are their own convincing witness. External difficulties can always be raised against them, some of which can never be solved; not because they are insoluble, but because the corresponding external evidence is lost. But such difficulties, at their best or worst, are never more than negative or circumstantial; they do not touch, nor do they usually attempt to touch, the positive truth which the Gospels contain on every page, for one who is willing to see. It has been the writer's aim to illustrate this, by drawing out a few of the threaas of the Gospel Witness to itself. The witnesses considered are Saint John the Evangelist, Zachary, The Blessed Virgin Mary, the people in Nazareth, the people in Galilee, the Apostles, the lawyers, Pontius Pilate and ultimate Almighty God.
