Started off with a few quick comments on the most recent Unbelievable broadcast, but then spent most of an hour playing clips from the Ehrman/Licona discusion on their “faith journeys” that aired the week before. I focused solely on Mike Licona’s assertion that as long as Jesus rose from the dead, Christianity is true, even if the Bible is wrong about all the details of the resurrection. Dr. Licona’s view that the inspiration and inerrancy of the Bible is a side-issue, something that may, or may not, be true, provided little in the way of helpful contrast the Ehrman’s anti-Christian rhetoric. A most disappointing encounter, to be sure. For most of the last half hour we pressed on with the Fernandes/Comis debate (we will finish it soon!).
