Do Christians have good historical reasons to put our faith in the resurrection of Jesus? Can we really know what happened 2,000 years ago? No one doubts the works of Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar or the history written about them, so what makes the historicity of Jesus so special? And what do non-Christian scholars say about the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus?
If anyone knows the answers to these questions, it’s New Testament scholar Dr. Michael Licona! His seminal work, The Resurrection of Jesus: A New Historiographical Approach, has been praised by many as the most thorough and useful tool to those looking for an in-depth study of the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus. Mike currently serves as Associate Professor in Theology at Houston Christian University and president of Risen Jesus, Inc. In this special midweek episode of ‘I Don’t Have Enough Faith to Be an Atheist,’ he sits down with Frank to discuss the following topics as they relate to Jesus and the resurrection:
problems with postmodernist history
the uncertainty of historical knowledge
what is a historical fact?
the tools and rules of historical research
how our worldview affects how we study history
objections to the resurrection of Jesus
the intersecting philosophies of science, history, and theology
This is a fascinating and in-depth discussion, and you’ll definitely learn something new! To view the entire VIDEO PODCAST, be sure to join our CrossExamined private community.
