Defending Early High Christology with Archaeology & New Testament Letters

In this session, philosopher and apologist Peter S. Williams will critique the claim that belief in Jesus' divinity was a late development detached from the historical Jesus. In response to proponents of a late high Christology such as Dan Brown (in his novel The Da Vinci Code) and John Loftus, we will draw upon fascinating archaeological discoveries as well as key passages in the New Testament letters. In particular, we will see that the Epistle of James displays a high Christology within a Jewish Christian context prior to the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70, and plausibly as early as the mid 40's AD.

Archaeological Evidence for Biblical History and Fulfilled Prophecy

In this session, philosopher and apologist Peter S. Williams will introduce the grand sweep of the biblical story through exciting discoveries from archaeology that speak to both the reliability of biblical history and the reality of fulfilled biblical prophecy. Come along and see how archaeology puts us in touch with people from the Old and New Testaments, the places they lived, the beliefs they held and the history-shaping events the biblical writers describe and prophecy.
