4 weeks.  $100.  In modern times it has become fashionable to dispute that Jesus even existed. This course will survey the evidence for his existence and go further and discuss the evidence for the existence of Jesus as Christians believe him to be. Some challenges to the Christian view will be raised and addressed but the emphasis will be on a straightforward analysis of the evidence. TWO 90 minute lectures by Dr. Gary Habermas exclusively available to the academy are provided in this course.

Strongly Suggested Materials.... The Historical Jesus by Dr. Gary Habermas, Jesus under Fire by Wilkens and Moreland, The Quest of the Historical Jesus by Albert Schweitzer, and others.
