Getting at Jesus: Responding to Neo-Atheist Nonsense about the Jesus of History

Description

The so-called new atheist movement has popularised an extreme scepticism about Jesus and the New Testament. This seminar will equip you to understand and respond to this scepticism. We’ll examine and discuss such topics as: how the new atheists do history, the possibility and knowability of miracles, the historical reliability of the canonical gospels, criteria for historical authenticity, Jesus’ existence, self-understanding and miracles (including the resurrection), and how the new atheists fail to rebut the case for the Christian understanding of Jesus.
