Is Jesus Simply a Copy Cat of Mithras? (Podcast)

In this blast from the past, J. Warner examines the historicity and nature of Jesus Christ. Before we can even look at who Jesus claimed to “be”, we need to make sure He existed in the first place. Critics claim that Jesus is simply a re-telling of the Mithras mythology, copying Mithras’ virgin birth, death and resurrection and many other similar details. But is Jesus truly similar to Mithras? Are there good reasons to expect ancient seekers to create a God that is similar to the true God of the universe?

For more information about the reliability of the New Testament gospels and the case for Christianity, please read Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels. This book teaches readers ten principles of cold-case investigations and applies these strategies to investigate the claims of the gospel authors. The book is accompanied by an eight-session Cold-Case Christianity DVD Set (and Participant’s Guide) to help individuals or small groups examine the evidence and make the case.
