- Reliable: Can You Trust the Bible?
March 18, 2017
9:00 am - 3:45 pm
Do you have questions about the reliability of the Bible? Do you know someone who does? The veracity and reliability of the Bible are at the center of the Christian faith; it’s no surprise then that the Bible is one of the first things to be questioned or attacked. “There’s no evidence for the Exodus.” “Why are there contradictions in the Gospel?” “The God of the Old Testament is evil.” “The Bible was translated many times, just like in the game of Telephone.” Join Ted Wright (Epic Archaeology) and Kurt Jaros (Defenders Media) as they explore answers to these, and other, objections to the Bible.
