Responding to Debate Video

Can we trust the Gospels? This post contains a number of videos of me responding to my students from Cedarville University regarding a debate I had them watch in class earlier this week. I have the video of that debate displayed below. In my responses I mention a few articles, and they are all listed at the bottom of the post. I look forward to discussing this more in-depth in class next week as we look at the doctrine of Scripture.

 Part 1: Class Overview 

 Part 2: The Three “I”s of Scripture 

 Part 3: What About Judas? 

 Part 4: What About Archeology? 

 Part Five: A Few Questions
