Description

In this second class in the "Bible: Myth or Fact" series, we take a hard look at the historical claims of the Bible. We will examine the evidence that supports the Bible's historicity. We will look at several significant events. Did the events of Exodus really happen? Was King David really the king of Israel or a mythical figure? Are there extra-biblical sources for the life and death of Jesus Christ? We will examine all these event and more and we invite you to examine the evidence for yourself.

Who is the target audience?
  • Christians who want to learn about the evidence for the historical accuracy of the Bible
  • Those who are skeptical about the historicity of Biblical events
