On the Reliability of the Biblical Manuscripts

Are the Biblical manuscripts reliable? Skipp Porteous says “no”. In his newly released book, “Jesus Doesn’t Live Here Anymore”, author Porteous says that much of the Bible is full of “inconsistencies and contradictions.” He says that the Gospel writers mostly recorded only hearsay.

On the Identity of the Historical Jesus

It is a matter of record that Jesus of Nazareth claimed to be God. At the approximate age of thirty years, this son of a carpenter began making some absolutely shocking statements about Himself.

On the Age of the Earth

Stephen Hawking is no dummy. In fact, the brilliant British physicist has even been described by some as “a modern-day Einstein”. And Hawking says billions. So does popular astronomer Carl Sagan.
