The Case for Christ

The documentary The Case for Christ follows reporter Lee Strobel as he interviews a number of religious and historical scholars in order to find out if there is any proof of the resurrection, and to discover the historical veracity of the New Testament. In trying the case for Christ, Strobel cross-examined a number of experts and recognized authorities in their own fields of study. He conducted his examination with no religious bias, other than his predisposition to atheism. Remarkably, after compiling and critically examining the evidence for himself, Strobel became a Christian. Stunned by his findings, he organized the evidence into a book he entitled, The Case for Christ, which has won the Gold Medallion Book Award for excellence. Strobel asks one thing of each reader – remain unbiased in your examination of the evidence. In the end, judge the evidence for yourself, acting as the lone juror in the case for Christ. Has anybody ever compiled the evidence to determine the case for Christ? As a matter of fact, Lee Strobel, an atheist at the time he undertook this endeavor, decided that he would prove Jesus Christ to be a fraud by the weight of the evidence.

    I'd recommend that you read the actual book called 'Case for Christ" or the other one for teens, It addresses all of the issues that  you just brought up.

    First of all, Lee Strobel does NOT hold an earned doctorate degree from any accredited university anywhere. He is a liar, shyster, and charlatan -- a con artist extraordinaire. And this "documentary" does not "document" any evidence whatsoever. It is just a bunch of people -- some misguided true believers, and some hypocrites out for an easy buck --  twisting reality, and in many cases outright lying. Telling true believing christians exactly what they want to hear is a multi billion dollar industry in the U.S.  Strobel apparently hopes this film will boost the profits for his "ministry".  
    Frauds and deceivers abound folks, and they will tell you anything you want to hear for just a few dollars. 

    There are mountains of evidence, well know to an army of GENUINE scholars around the world -- historians, theologians, archaeologists, linguists, classical studies experts, etc., etc., that demonstrate that Jesus is a myth, based on older god myths and the Markan fictional Jesus as a composite of characters from Homeric epics. Anyone who tells you otherwise is simply ignorant of the facts or an outright deceiver.
