The Deeper Magic On one of the shelves in our study at the house is a tattered, taped up copy of an old children’s book. It is the first in a seven-part series of books that originally belonged to my brother-in-law who gave them to me several years ago. The second through seventh volumes are […]

How do we know that Jesus rose from the dead? Several years back I put together a simple outline of the main lines of evidence using the word EASTER. Each point is tied to Paul’s important defense of the hope of the resurrection in 1 Corinthians 15. At the end is a list of six […]

Also, since many of us think the Messiah is the fulfillment of Passover, some of us may attend a Passover event as well.

I recently watched a debate between New Testament scholar Bart Ehrman, and an Evangelical Christian apologist, Kyle Butt, who argued that God and His suffering world can exist in harmony. Dr. Ehrman’s most recent book, “God’s Problem,” a New York Times best seller, says no – suffering is proof that God doesn’t exist. Kyle opened, […]

Outspoken

Maybe he didn’t. His body may have been stolen. A report circulated that the disciples came at night and stole the body and the next day professed his resurrection in order to keep Jesus’ rebellion alive.(Matthew 28:12-15) Can The Bible Be Trusted?
