Today’s challenge comes from a list of “Ten Questions to Ask Your Pastor, Reverend, Minister, or Priest”:

Matthew 5:17-18 says quite clearly that Jesus demands Christians follow Old Testament law completely, to the smallest possible point. Why don’t they?

Can you respond to this theological challenge? Here’s a hint: The first step with any challenge like this one is to read the passage carefully in context. Take a shot, and we’ll hear Brett’s response on Thursday.

For more information on the subject of whether or not the story of Jesus is a copy of pagan myths, William Lane Craig recommends Mark Foreman’s essay in Come Let Us Reason as part of his response in this video.

For this week’s challenge, special guest Michael Licona answers the skeptic…

Brett is bringing in a special guest to respond to this week’s challenge on Thursday. Here’s the challenge:

How do we know Jesus even existed? The only people who wrote about Him were Christians who probably made Him up. We don’t have any reliable non-Christian sources for Jesus.

Brett’s guest will answer the question of whether or not any non-Christian writers talked about Jesus. But I’m also interested in hearing how you would respond to the skeptic’s dismissal of the Gospels as legitimate sources of evidence for the existence of Jesus. Go for it!

From one of my favorite professors:

This spoken word video from Alpha and Omega Ministries explains a major difference between the teaching of the Qur’an and the central event of the Bible.
