Resurrection Debate Tomorrow

Tomorrow, September 9th, at 4pm PST I will be debating apologist Nick Peters about the historicity of Jesus’ resurrection.

People will be able to listen to the debate both live and afterwards in an MP3 recording. Debate PictureTo listen live there will be a conference dial in number. Call 1 559.546.1301 at the equivalent time in your time zone and enter the code 116676#. The line can only hold 96 callers, so if a lot of people call in and you are late, you may have to wait for the MP3 to be posted (I will be posting a link here after the debate).

The topic of the debate will be: “Based on the historical evidence, is it more reasonable to believe or doubt Jesus’ resurrection?”

I will be affirming the position: “It is more reasonable to doubt that Jesus resurrected from the dead.” And Peters will be affirming the position: “It is more reasonable to believe that Jesus resurrected from the dead.

I look forward to the exchange.

-Matthew Ferguson

    Very much looking forward to this although I’m probably going to have to grab the mp3 when it’s available. You’re quickly becoming one of my favorite religious critics. Sharp mind, a wealth of study and information from education and introspective thought put you on a level above most. Put this alongside a humility and gracious tone in all of your dealings with various apologists and you’ve got my ear for the foreseeable future.

    • Thanks for reading the blog and your interest in the upcoming debate! To be honest, I am a little nervous, since I haven’t had a formal debate like this since high school. Mostly I think keeping things within the time limit will be a challenge. All I hope is that the discussion turns out to be informative and worthwhile.

    Woo-hoo! I got in on it. I will write up my review later. The quote from the debate is your question whether Keener’s book makes it more likely God would turn you into cucumber. Classic.
