Simon Greenleaf on the Veracity of the New Testiment Eyewitnesses

Simon Greenleaf, the Harvard Law School professor who wrote the standard study on what constitutes legal evidence, credited his own conversion to Christianity as having come from his careful examination, of the Gospel witnesses.  If anyone knew the characteristics of genuine eyewitness testimony, it was Greenleaf.  He concluded that the four Gospels “would have been received in evidence in any court of justice, without the slightest hesitation.”
