57 - Did Jesus Resurrect w/ Dr. Gary Habermas


In this episode immediately following the four gospels, we're going to talk to one of the most well known scholars in the area of historicity of Christ's resurrection - Dr. Gary Habermas. We'll go over evidence that Jesus actually rose from the dead. Could it just be a fantasy that the disciples colluded to record? Could Jesus's body have been stolen? How do we know for sure that He died and rose again? We'll answer all those questions in today's episode. Hope you enjoy!

The Resurrection with Gary Habermas (Encore)

Hank Unplugged: Essential Christian Conversations

Dr. Gary Habermas has dedicated his life to the study and defense of the Resurrection because it is without a doubt the seminal event in history and the foundation of Christianity—simply put, without the Resurrection Christian belief crumbles. (Note: This conversation took place in March 2018 as Hank was in the midst of his battle with cancer—Thanks be to God, Hank is now cancer free). Topics discussed include: How studying the Resurrection led Dr. Habermas into apologetics (3:15); empirical evidence for Christianity compared to other religions (8:30); perspectives on the supernatural in academic circles (11:00); the Resurrection, Jesus Seminar, and the Pre-Pauline Creed (14:45); evidence of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ (18:45); Islamic denial of the crucifixion of Christ (21:15); evidence of an empty tomb after the Resurrection of Christ (27:25); witnesses to the Resurrection and the martyrdom that ensued (30:35); the faith and martyrdom of early church fathers such as Polycarp and Irenaeus (36:10); the sorrow Habermas felt losing his wife to cancer and the hope he felt knowing that she was in heaven (40:30); the peace that the Resurrection of Christ provides Hank in the midst of his battle with cancer (47:00); the argument from joy by C. S. Lewis (54:30); a miracle in Hank’s life and the role of miracles in Christianity (59:00); rewards in heaven (1:04:15); world religions, the reliability of Scripture and the radical uniqueness of Jesus (1:06:30); do all religions lead to God? (1:10:10); is Christianity is rooted in history and evidence? (1:14:20); why should we believe in miracles? (1:22:30); Christianity corresponds to reality (1:25:00); why aren’t more Christians sharing their faith? (1:28:15); why Hank considers his first year fighting cancer as the best year of his life (1:36:45); how cancer has brought the Hanegraaff family closer together and closer to Christ (1:42:50); how suffering through cancer has made Hank more empathetic (1:47:15); Gary Habermas describes watching his wife die of cancer (1:53:00); why the best year of Hank’s life is the year he was diagnosed with cancer (1:58:50); Habermas on a magnum opus on the Resurrection (2:00:30).

16 Gary Habermas Interview: The Enigma of Near Death Experiences

Apologetics Profile

In this episode, James Walker and Daniel Ray interview Dr. Gary Habermas, Distinguished Research Professor of Apologetics and Philosophy at Liberty University. The conversation explores some of the mysteries and controversy surrounding Near Death Experiences (NDE). Dr. Habermas is a Christian apologist who is recognized as one of the world’s leading experts on the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He has also studied the phenomena of NDE – human consciousness and awareness experienced in subjects during clinical death followed by resuscitation. This podcast unpacks some of the latest developments in the emerging field of NDE studies and address some provocative questions, including:  What is Near Death Experience? Is the field of NDE studies somehow related to resurrection scholarship? Can virtually all NDE accounts be explained by either hallucination or fraud? While most NDEs are “unevidenced,” what are some documented examples of “evidenced”      NDE reports? How trustworthy and consistent are the “evidenced” NDE accounts that are being documented in the current literature?

TMR 240 [Repost] : Dr. Gary Habermas : The Minimal Facts Approach to Jesus' Resurrection

The Mind Renewed : Thinking Christianly in a New World Order

On this Easter Sunday (and owing to the ongoing busyness here in the "depths of the Lancashire countryside") I've decided to reshare one of my favourite interviews from the TMR archive—a conversation with Dr. Gary Habermas on Jesus' Resurrection, recorded way back in 2014. As I wrote at the time..."We are joined by one of the world's leading experts in Resurrection Studies, Dr. Gary Habermas, Distinguished Professor and Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Theology at Liberty University, for an in-depth discussion on the historical case for the Resurrection of Jesus from the Dead.How might we persuade people of the truth of Jesus' Resurrection? Must we appeal only to the divine authority of Scripture and hope that people will agree? Not according to Dr. Habermas, who explains how his "minimal facts approach" (which relies only on historical data agreed by the vast majority of professional scholars in the field) bypasses such appeals to authority, and has the power to persuade - through logic and historical reasoning alone - that Jesus did in fact rise from the Dead."For show notes please visit https://themindrenewed.com
