The Gospels as history

Denny Burk found this lecture by Peter Williams, "The Gospels as Eyewitness Accounts," "absolutely riveting":
Peter Williams is the warden at Tyndale House in Cambridge, England. He is also one of the bright lights of evangelical scholarship. Last March, he gave a fascinating lecture at the Lanier Theological Library in Houston, Texas titled “New Evidences the Gospels were Based on Eyewitness Accounts.” John Piper has called this presentation “the most remarkable (video) lecture on the reliability of the Gospels I’ve ever heard.” I would agree with Piper. I found this lecture to be absolutely riveting.
I've posted it before. If you have the least interest in the historicity of the gospels this is very much worth watching
