Sun 28 Mar 2021


Bible reference(s): 1 Corinthians 15.3-4

Easter is approaching where millions of Christians around the world celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. But did it really happen? Could it have been the greatest hoax ever pulled off? We explore with an expert who has agonised over this question and hear his journey and conclusions.

Our guest: Dr Michael Licona. Mike is a New Testament scholar and historian. He works as a professor at Houston Baptist University and has also been the director of Risen Jesus - an organisation providing authentic answers to questions about Jesus and the Gospels, for over 20 years. He is a popular author, debater and speaker.
