"Such a Jesus would threaten no one, just as the university professors who create him threaten no one.”—John P. Meier
Back in 2011, my wife and I had the opportunity to go with Reasonable Faith (the organisation headed up by Dr. Craig) on a guided tour of Israel. On many of the evenings back at the hotel Dr. Craig would give a talk, sharing his reflections upon the historical sites we had visited, and commenting from his knowledge of biblical and non-biblical ancient writings. In this, the third and final presentation from that tour, Dr. Craig speaks about the week of events leading up to Jesus' crucifixion, burial and resurrection, and critiques the imaginative—yet, in his view, historically false—reconstructions of revisionist scholars.
