Course Description

This course explores the time-tested argument for Christ's deity - The Trilemma.


"Very interesting and I'm learning far more than anticipated." -Shari Caudill


The course walks students through a four-point deductive argument that uses evidence to demonstrate that there are only three possible options for Jesus' identity: Liar, Lunatic, or Lord.


"Excellent course. Well-organized, well-presented. I HIGHLY recommend
this course to EVERYONE! The arguments presented are logical, deductive,
and well-supported."
-Tracy Jenise Pinkard


The course explores these three options each individually to discern which - as per the historical evidence - is most probable.

What are the requirements?

  • Disregard your presuppositions, whether positive or negative, and humble your mind and heart to follow only the evidence to its own conclusion.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Understand the Trilemma argument and deploy it to demonstrate that it is most reasonable to believe that Jesus was God.

Who is the target audience?

  • This course is most well-suited for the Christian who wishes to learn the evidence that supports the objective truth of Christianity - especially for the one who wishes to become a sharp critical thinker, intellectual leader and evangelist of the mind. It is also for the curious non-Christian or spiritual seaker who wishes to explore the evidence and decide whether they believe Christianity to be true.

Instructor Biography

First, I was born. Then I grew up. It was not until I was in my second year of college that I ever did anything worth mentioning in a biography.

Somewhat depressed and confused, in my sophomore year at Shepherd University an hour outside of the nation's capital I began to read philosophy and apologetics. Faith growing, I soon became a leader of two campus ministries. One was Ratio Christi, a worldwide student apologetics ministry, for which I served as Vice President of SU's chapter. Now, a year after graduation, I am taking what I learned in college and applying it. Not anything I learned in class, but rather, what I learned in my own personal study, and from the brilliant minds I studied with and under on our own time while I was at my small, secular, liberal university.
