Refuting Four Recent Attacks Against The Historical Jesus
Phil Fernandes Ph.D. gives a 60 minute seminar that was recorded during the Seattle Creation Conference on October 2011 at Woodin Valley Baptist Church.
Dan Brown, author of The DaVinci Code, claims that the church never believed Jesus to be God until the Council of Nicea in 325 ad. Elaine Pagels of Princeton University believes that the so-called Gnostic Gospels should be added to our Bibles, despite the fact that these works contradict the New Testament teachings about Jesus. Bart Ehrman argues that, due to all the variants in the copies, we don't really know what the original manuscripts of the New Testament actually said. And Dr. Robert Price doesn't even believe Jesus really existed--the early church borrowed from pagan myths to construct their own Jesus myth. Christians must be able to respond to these four attacks to show the world that the Jesus of the Bible is in fact the true Jesus of history.
