The Jesus Game and Q&A
On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast, Hank discusses a book titled The Miracle Myth: Why Belief in the Resurrection and the Supernatural Is Unjustified by Larry Shapiro. In the book, Shapiro paints a portrait of Christ that rules out the supernatural. His pseudo-historical information is garnered from Bart Ehrman and Richard Carrier, a fringe scholar who believes the historical Christ never existed. Shapiro ignores the apostle Paul and the creed found in 1 Corinthians chapter 15, which is early and free from legendary contamination. Here we have a man who wins the “Jesus Game,” but loses the week that changed the world.
Hank answers the following questions:
Will there be time in eternity or will we always be in the present?
What are your thoughts on Rahab’s lie? The narrative seems to indicate that she wins favor with the Lord.
When people die are they really in the presence of the Lord? What happened to Lazarus?
What are your thoughts on Sozo prayer ministry?
Can you clarify the issue of lying? Was Jacob right to deceive Isaac into giving him the birthright?
What are the eternal promises for women in Islam?
Is there a consensus on Paul’s authorship of the New Testament epistles?
Did God take Ananias and Sapphira to heaven or were they lost church members?
“If all the evidence is weighed carefully and fairly, it is indeed justifiable, according to the canons of historical research, to conclude that the sepulcher of Joseph of Arimathea, in which Jesus was buried, was actually empty on the morning of the first Easter. And no shred of evidence has yet been discovered in literary sources, epigraphy, or archaeology that would disprove this statement."—Dr. Paul Maier, renowned scholar of ancient history, featured inThe Week That Changed the World
