How Important was the Principle of Embarrassment in Your Assessment of the Gospels? (Video)

The gospel authors describe embarrassing details about the disciples. Does this prove the writers are telling the truth? This clip was taken from J. Warner Wallace’s interview with Ragnhard Petersen, the general secretary of the student movement in the Faroe islands called KFS (the Faroese version of Intervarsity).

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.
