Jamie Theakston ?Forbidden History?
« on: July 22, 2018, 11:19:06 AM »
Hello.  :051bye:
I?m new on here and would just like to get any views about this programme ( if anyone watched it).
It was the first episode in the current series ( S5-E1 ?Uncovering the Historical Jesus?).
I wished I hadn?t watched it now as my faith doesn?t seem strong enough to listen to some of these supposedly historical facts.
I?d just like to hear any other views from others.
Many thanks.

Welcome Raine,
                             I didn't see the program, there would be very little physical evidence for Jesus in the cities and buildings there.
I didn't watch the program because of that. For me the evidence for Jesus is found in historical documents.
May I suggest that you check out sites like doorcase Christianity, for a detectives view of the value and reliability of the evidence of the N.T. or Dr. Gary Habermas and the evidence for the resurrection.
Christianity is based on historical facts so our questions and doubt's can be investigated and answers found.

I haven't seen the programme because I don't have TV any more.
But I've seen similar programmes in the past.

To give one example: an 'expert' was explaining that all the documentary evidence (i.e. the gospels) agrees that Jesus was born in Bethlehem. Then she declared that "therefore he must have been born in Nazareth"! How utterly illogical! People are only allowed to get away with such rubbish when talking about Christianity!

I watched all of these, very interesting.  We really shouldn?t be surprised, with all the contradictory evidence, people didn?t know any better when the bible was written.

Hi
The first thing we need to ask ourselves is, is there a God and did that God create everything we see if you can answer yes to this question then you have to accept the bible as Gods word.

Because if God has created the universe and everything in it then it stands to reason he could create a book for our enlightenment and that book would be exactly has he wants it to be.


I have not seen the program you mention but have read a few books on the subject but have never been convinced its usually all theory and conjecture no real evidence they all seam to start out from the point of view that the bible is just a fairy tale not true but in reality every word of the bible is true.


I did watch about 10 min of one of the programs but all they seamed to be doing was talking about a tomb that someone had said was the tomb Jesus was buried in and they proved it wasn't what on earth has that got to do with anything nowhere in scripture dose it say which tomb Christ was buried in or where it was sounds to me like this was a tourist attraction to make money out of suckers.

So its all a question of faith in the belief that the God of creation is the one who wrote the Bible through the holly spirit speaking to those who wrote it every word is inspired by God all we have to do is believe it.


Love and Peace

Hi,

Does everyone on here believe in creation?  Really?
