I’ve been having quite the interaction on this blog recently about the historical evidence for the existence of Jesus. More recently, Stephen Law has joined in and responded to me on his own blog. I know there are a lot of readers of this blog with some background in historical study including several who work on Biblical history. What do you make of the interaction thus far? When I’ve failed to persuade some of my dialogue partners, is it because of my inept presentation, or their inordinate skepticism, or the simple fact that a historical judgment isn’t based on only one piece of evidence, or something else?
