Was Jesus something other than who (or what) the Gospels describe? Was he really just a talented illusionist like other first century hucksters? In this video from Summit Worldview Ministries video archive, J. Warner Wallace explains what he first thought about Jesus and why he ultimately rejected the claim that Jesus was nothing more than an ancient magician.

For more information about the impact Jesus and His followers had on science, read Person of Interest: Why Jesus Still Matters in a World That Rejects the Bible. This unique and innovative book makes a case for the historicity and Deity of Jesus from history alone, without relying on the New Testament manuscripts. It contains over 400 illustrations and is accompanied by a ten-session Person of Interest DVD Set (and Investigator’s Guide) to help individuals or small groups examine the evidence and make the case.
