Cold Case Christianity

The Bible

A Thought Experiment That Demonstrates the Reliability of the New Testament (Video)

In this clip from a Summit Worldview Conference session, cold-case detective, J. Warner Wallace, examines the objection that there are too many variants between the ancient New Testament manuscripts to trust any document we have today. Is there a process we could use to determine their reliability? In this thought experiment, J. Warner describes a “worst case scenario” in an effort to demonstrate the reliability of the New Testament.

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.

Professor of Christian Apologetics at Talbot School of Theology, Biola University, author of Cold-Case ChristianityGod’s Crime Scene, and Forensic Faith, and creator of the Case Makers Academy for kids.

    Hi, I thought you might want to know that the link to your YouTube channel under your video is not working. I was able to subscribe by clicking on the link in the video itself.
