03-08-2021 Discussion Questions

  1.  Discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the theory that Jesus survived the cross. 

2.  Last week we discussed that anything is possible but not everything is reasonable (or likely).  Based on the evidence, can the problems with this theory be explained in a way that is reasonable?  Explain your answer.

3.  Since none of us were actually present to witness Jesus’ death directly, any conclusion requires faith (or trust in the evidence).  Discuss the role of faith in your conclusion, and compare this to your faith in other famous historical events (example: the death of Abraham Lincoln).  Is your thought process the same or different?

4.  What additional questions do you have about Jesus’ death?
