Description

The Defense Rests is a podcast in which you're the jury. We'll put Christianity and other worldviews in the courtroom as we address the claims for and the objections against the Christian faith from a legal perspective. You'll hear objections right from atheists, agnostics, and those from other religions to see whether Christianity holds up to courtroom level scrutiny.

Episode Date
Objection! "Miracles are the Least Likely Explanation"
<p>This episode begins with the discussion of counter-explanations to the Resurrection. Specifically, the objection that since miracles are the least likely event, they are the least likely explanation of what happened to Jesus. In this episode, Abdu indicates how this objection employs unfounded assumptions and actually employs circular reasoning.</p> <p><strong>Follow The Defense Rests on Twitter:</strong></p> <p>Abdu Murray - <a href="https://twitter.com/Abdumurray" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@AbduMurray</a><br /></p>

A Lawyer's Case for the Resurrection Part 2
<p>This episode continues to discuss the CASE acronym, specifically the S and the E to establish the case that Jesus rose from the dead. We discuss the burden of proof once again, and how the Christian can meet the burden and then shift it onto the skeptic to try to explain what happened to Jesus.</p> <p><strong>Follow The Defense Rests on Twitter:</strong></p> <p>Abdu Murray - <a href="https://twitter.com/Abdumurray" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@AbduMurray</a></p>

A Lawyer's Case for the Resurrection Part 1
<p>This episode explains the differences between "circumstantial evidence" and "direct evidence." It includes Abdu's "CASE" acronym setting out four key facts about the historical Jesus that the vast majority of scholars agree on. Abdu argues that Jesus' resurrection from the dead best explains the facts.</p> <p><strong>Follow The Defense Rests on Twitter:</strong></p> <p>Abdu Murray - <a href="https://twitter.com/Abdumurray" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@AbduMurray</a></p>
