Sample text

As to what constitutes adequate grounds there can be no 'across the board' answer; criteria have to be established separately for each different subject-matter. And the point I want to make is this: the business of seeking knowledge is in practice simply the business of trying to come to reasonable or rational or adequately based beliefs. When we claim to know some matter of fact we are simply claiming to have adequate grounds for believing that same thing. For we have no other way of trying to determine its truth or falsity 57 than by considering what grounds there are for believing it.

It also affects the gospel accounts of Jesus' life prior to his death and resurrection; for the gospel writers and those who had successively transmitted the material to them could not help sometimes thinking of the earthly Jesus in terms of his ascended glory, reading back (as StJohn in particular does) his resurrected majesty into his earthly life. It is now very difficult to be sure of the precise character of the event which we call the resurrection. It is presented in the Gospels as a bodily event - the crucified body of Jesus came back to life leaving behind it an empty tomb 47 and was seen, heard and perhaps touched by some of his disciples.

RSV = American revised standard version. 7. For a discussion in dialogue form of different points of view concerning the character of the resurrection event, see 0. W. H. Lampe and D. M. MacKinnon, The Resurrection (London: Mowbray, 1966; Philadelphia: Westminster Press, 1967). 49 2 How do We Know? 1 Faith as a Mode of Knowledge The debate between sceptics and believers centres upon the question whether religious faith is veridical or illusory. But before this can usefully be discussed there has to be agreement about what it is that we are calling faith.
