The Case Against Christ

Jesus, it is alleged, was a divine being who performed supernatural feats. The Bible, for the most part, is a central source of evidence about Jesus and his miracles. The vast majority of believers ground their belief on it, but there are a number of problems with this route to belief. Believing in Jesus’ miracles, the resurrection for example, is inconsistent with our standards of evidence in a host of other ordinary and reasonable cases. If we are going to believe in Jesus, we must also accept many other irrational claims. The answer: apply a consistent standard and acknowledge that we can’t justify our liberal or ad hoc justifications for Jesus.
