  • In Defense of the Resurrection - Conclusion

    The following is submitted by guest writer Isaac McKown

    In this final blog post, I want to reflect on one more issue and draw things to a close.

    Someone may ask the question that if we can use biblical sources, why is there not more corroborating evidence from non-biblical sources for the facts used in the Minimal Facts Argument? The person asking the question is often discounting biblical sources for reasons I have already addressed in this blog series such as they are bi...   More

  • In defense of the Resurrection - Part 3

    The following is submitted by guest writer Isaac McKown

    Today we will continue our discussion of reasons people give for rejecting the use of biblical writings as sources in reconstructing historical events, focusing on the objection that one cannot legitimately use biblical sources because they cannot be considered different sources independent of each other.   More

  • In defense of the Resurrection - Part 2

    The following is submitted by guest writer Isaac McKown

    In today’s blogpost, I want to examine a common criticism of the minimal facts approach to the resurrection of Jesus (MFA), namely that one cannot use biblical writings as sources in such an argument because they are biased and contradictory.

    This claim should strike the reader as odd first because no historical document is held to this standard. Often in the reconstruction of historical events scholars have onl...   More

  • The State of Christian Free Speech in America

    This report is taken from a series of Public Policy Sessions at the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Convention 2017. Ratio Christi was blessed to have an exhibit booth at this convention and someone attending the sessions.

    Three clients of the Christian legal firm Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) took the platform at the NRB convention to talk about their legal battles – lawsuits which stem from challenges...   More

  • What to Say in Resurrection Conversations

    Easter is just ahead of us. What will you say if someone asks you about the Resurrection? Tim Hull is RC's (waiting for newer title). He's invited us to use this guest post from his website, Plugged Into Apologetics.

    “How does the death of a guy, even if he is God, do anything for me now?” A friend asked me this a short time ago. This p...   More

  • In defense of the Resurrection - A Series

    The following is submitted by guest writer Isaac McKown

    Thanks to the quality work of scholars such as Gary Habermas, Michael Licona, NT Wright, etc., one of the most popular apologetics arguments lending credence to the truth claims of Christianity is the so-called “minimal facts” approach (MFA) to the resurrection.   More
