Study on the Historical Jesus has found its way into our university classrooms and into our homes through our TVs and computers. Those writing and speaking on the topic are often agnostics and skeptics. How do you talk about Jesus to people for whom the Bible in itself may not have intrinsic value as a source for understanding Jesus? How does one discuss Jesus from the Bible when the Bible itself is a question?
In this Ministry Forum Darrell Bock will examine the playing field in historical Jesus studies, will discuss the formation of our four gospels, and will illustrate how to engage skeptics by discussing several stories from the life of Christ.The goal of the forum is not only that believers will be better informed about current discussion swirling around Jesus in the public square, but also that they are better equipped to engage with skeptics about Jesus in the public square.
