Reasons to Believe in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ

On Thursday, April 6 the senior Theology IV Philosophy and Apologetics classes combined in Mr. Mesisca’s classroom to participate in a Skype interview with renowned philosopher and Christian theologian Dr. Ken Samples. Dr. Samples is a writer, public speaker, and senior research scholar at Reasons to Believe (RTB). He encourages believers to develop a logically defensible faith and challenges skeptics to engage Christianity at a philosophical worldview level. During our interview, Dr. Samples presented twelve convincing proofs for the resurrection of Jesus Christ and responded to philosophical objections to the resurrection popularized by skeptics and critics of Christianity.

Philosophy teacher Mr. Mesisca '92 said, “It was encouraging to have the evidences and arguments we discuss in class reinforced and expanded upon by Dr. Samples. He was extremely gracious with his time and the manner in which he fielded student questions in today’s session.” Maranatha thanks Mr. Mesisca, Ms. Bell, Mr. Mehrabian, and Mr. Mancini for helping to make this an enriching experience for our students.
