Mimesis Criticism

Video: Do the Gospels Imitate the Homeric Epics?

This video entails Mike Licona’s thought-provoking response to Dennis MacDonald’s use of mimesis criticism to claim that the Gospels mostly just borrow from ‘seminal’ literary works like Homer’s epics.

Mike Licona: There are similarities between the Gospel accounts and Homer’s epics. Is it possible the Gospel authors never intended their work to be read as historical accounts of Jesus? Dr. Licona responds in his 2021 debate with Dennis MacDonald at Washburn University. Original Video: https://youtu.be/XkRfipZgOGk
