From where did the belief in a physical Resurrection come from? Could we trace its origin to pagan roots or was it unlike anything else in antiquity?
We’ve examined and defended many of the divine claims made by Jesus Christ in the Gospel accounts and now it’s time to put them into context. Why did Jesus Christ come to earth and what did He come to accomplish?
In our look into the divine claims of Jesus, we have argued for the authenticity of the claims by noting the allusions to the OT, the date of the claims, and the character of Jesus Himself in the trilemma. But everything we have argued thus far amounts to nothing if the major claims to divinity were completely misunderstood from the beginning. When Jesus calls Himself the Son of Man, what, exactly, does He mean?
In the Gospel of Mark, we read about an event wherein Jesus commands a leper to keep the identity of his healer a secret, so to speak. If Jesus was sure of His identity as the Son of God, what’s with the secrecy here?
In the final instalment of our look into the famous trilemma defence, we address the theory that Jesus was a lunatic not unlike others who identify themselves the same way today.
If Jesus wasn’t a liar could He have been honestly mistaken about His divine identity instead?
Before we can begin to examine the divine claims of Christ themselves we need to first ask ourselves who Jesus really was? Was He a liar, a lunatic, or Lord? In this article, we’ll look at the first of those possibilities. Did Jesus lie about His divinity?
In the garden of Gethsemane, when Jesus was being arrested by the Temple guards of the Sanhedrin, why did the disciples flee? Is this evidence that they didn’t believe that Jesus was divine?
Did Jesus Christ really claim to be divine, or were these claims added by the church long after the fact?
As the new year rolls around many of us are beginning to wonder what 2019 has in store for us. Do you fear what’s ahead? If so, let’s step into the new year with a fresh view on the nature of faith.
Are modern translations of the Bible trying to erase the existence of God from the Old Testament?
This is the start of a new series that will look into the debate of the various translations of the Bible that have been formulated over the centuries. Where did we get our English translations and is there really only one right translation or can we trust all of our major translations?
Does the Bible err when it calls a whale a fish or are the critics merely holding a double standard?
A number of skeptics have claimed that there is evidence to suggest that Jesus really wasn’t divine, such as His cry of abandonment on the cross. Did Jesus cry out in despair or was there something more?
In part two of our look at the claims and arguments made by the anti-holiday crowd, we’ll see if partaking in festivities with the Easter Bunny and eggs mean we are worshipping pagan deities.
