1. What evidence (outside the Bible) is there that Jesus existed (as a historical person)?

3. What are the key passages in the Bible that show Jesus claimed to be God?

4. What does the Bible say about the exclusivity of Jesus concerning salvation?

pardoned sins without a gruesome death involved)?

6. What are the facts of the resurrection that are agreed on by even skeptical, secular scholars?

7. What are the main theories non-believers have about the resurrection (e.g., unknown tomb, wrong tomb, disciples stole the body, authorities hid the body, etc.)?

8. Why do Christians believe a supernatural (bodily) resurrection explains the minimal facts better than all the other theories?

9. Why does it matter whether or not Jesus was resurrected (and that the resurrection wasn’t simply a metaphor)?

10. Was Jesus wrong about the timing of his second coming? Why or why not?
