Moving Toward Christmas: Showing the Foundations of our Confidence
The following is a lengthy video but it is well worth it. It is common for non-believers to say things like: “The New Testament was written down two or three generations after the events they describe. We don’t even know for sure if a person named Jesus lived.” Usually, there is no evidence given or if they are a bit more sophisticated they might quote someone like Bart Erhman to try to make their case.
Bart Erhman would be hard pressed to answer these lines of evidence. Dr. Peter Williams is this century’s F.F. Bruce giving a similar but more up to date defense of the reliablity of the New Testament. Bruce’s classic, New Testament Documents: Are They Reliable? is still a valuable read but you will love this video.
Home schooling parents, this would be a good video to work into your curriculum. Husbands and wives, turn the TV off and watch this video together. It will strengthen your faith and Dr. Williams even manages to be funny as well as informative.
