Featured Audio: Jesus as a Logician and Apologist
As we continue our series on the "Greatest Apologist Who Ever Lived," I ponder the question, "Why are so many believers in Christ reluctant to see Jesus as an intellectual?" After all, it was Jesus Himself who said:
"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind" (Matthew 22:37, ESV, Emphasis mine).
Moreover, Jesus Himself engaged in intellectual conversations and used brilliant parables to illustrate and communicate truths.
Charles Sheldon once wrote a book entitled In His Steps and from it spawned the often repeated question, "What would Jesus Do?" My hope and prayer is that by the end of the week, you may answer that question with a resounding, "He would engage His audience intellectually!"
In today's featured audio, philosopher Dallas Willard presents a lecture called Jesus as a Logician and Apologist.
You can check it out here.
Later this week, as a complement to this audio, we will be viewing an article by Dr. Willard entitled Jesus the Logician.
Courage and Godspeed,
