In this podcast we discuss:
- What does it mean that Christianity is “verifiable” and “falsifiable”?
- Minimal Facts Approach – What are the historical facts that are generally agreed upon by Christians and non-Christians alike?
- Are the accounts of those who saw the resurrected Jesus likely to be accurate? What are the discontinuities between the gospel accounts and mythological writing?
- What are continuities and discontinuities with Jesus’s body pre-resurrection and post-resurrection?
- What should we make of the stories of people rising to life around the time that Jesus died?
- Is it possible to present evidence that Jesus of Nazareth is Yahweh, the God who created the universe?
- How do we use historical critical methodologies wisely?
