Jesus, Contradicted | with Mike Licona

Do most Christians have the wrong definition of inerrancy? You may have noticed some pretty significant discrepancies between the different Gospel accounts in the New Testament–discrepancies that skeptic Bart Ehrman didn’t hesitate to point out during past debates with Dr. William Lane Craig, Jimmy Akin, AND today’s guest! Is there a way for Bible believing Christians to harmonize these variations, or should we throw out the concept of Bible inerrancy altogether?

This week, author, Christian apologist, and New Testament scholar, Dr. Mike Licona, sits down with Frank to expose the truth about “errors” in the Bible, specifically tackling some of Bart Ehrman’s objections to the reliability of the New Testament. He’ll also discuss the release of his new book, ‘Jesus, Contradicted: Why the Gospels Tell the Same Story Differently‘, which is a resource aimed to help Christians navigate through textual variances. During the episode, Frank and Mike will answer questions like:

What is the true meaning of divine inspiration?
What is the Chicago Statement of Inerrancy and what are some of its shortcomings?
Did God dictate to the Gospel authors?
Are there errors in the original Bible manuscripts?
What is literary spotlighting and how does it apply to the Resurrection narratives?

Buckle your seatbelts friends, because this podcast episode is likely going to make you uncomfortable by challenging much of what you’ve been taught (or assumed) about biblical inerrancy. Is it okay that the Bible doesn’t have camera-like accuracy in some places? Listen as Dr. Licona helps us to take a fresh look at the doctrine of inerrancy and then decide for yourself. And be sure to pick up a copy of the book, ‘Jesus, Contradicted‘!
