Finding God in the Middle of a Genocide

  • Description: On the night of April 6, 1994, a plane carrying Rwandan president Juvénal Habyarimana was shot down as it prepared to land, killing all aboard. The assassination was the catalyst for one of the most horrific genocides on the 20th century. Majority Hutus slaughtered the minority Tutsis and their Hutu sympathizers. Nearly one million people perished, roughly 20% of the country’s population and 70% of Tutsis in the country. Immaculée Ilibagiza is one of the survivors. She joins us to tell how her Catholic faith saved her life.

The Case for the Resurrection of Jesus

  • Description: Billions profess to believe in the historical existence, death, and supernatural resurrection of Jesus. This man from Nazareth, a working-class Jew, made an exclusive claim to personal deity. The size of his popular religion and this one audacious claim refuse to be ignored, yet neither one amounts to evidence. Gary Habermas has dedicated his professional life to the examination of the relevant historical, philosophical, and theological issues surrounding the death and resurrection of Jesus. His extensive list of publications and debates provides a thorough account of the current state of the issue. Christian believers as well as unbelievers may find within the contents of this site a strong argument for the philosophical possibility of miracles and the historicity of the resurrection of Jesus, as well as the theological and practical implications of this event.
  • Segment Guests:
    • Gary Habermas
      Gary R. Habermas (Ph.D., Michigan State University) has taught college, graduate school, and seminary for over twenty-five years. He is currently distinguished professor and chair of the department of philosophy and theology at Liberty University, Lynchburg, Virginia. He has also authored, co-authored, or edited twenty-five books and over 100 articles in journals and magazines across the nation.

If Christ Has Not Been Raised....

  • Description: What actually and historically happened to the body of Jesus can best be judged from watching how later Christian accounts slowly but steadily increased the reverential dignity of their burial accounts. But what was there at the beginning that necessitated such an intensive volume of apologetic insistence? If the Romans did not observe the Deuteronomic decree, Jesus' body would have been left on the cross for the wild beasts. And his followers, who had fled, would know that. If the Romans did observe the decree, the soldiers would have made certain Jesus was dead and then buried him themselves as part of their job. In either case, his body left on the cross or in a shallow grave barely covered with dirt and stones, the dogs were waiting. And his followers, who had fled, would know that too. Watch, then, how the horror of that brutal truth is sublimated through hope and imagination into its opposite.
