Jesus: The Great Debate is based on Dr. Grant R. Jeffrey's best-selling book. Jeffrey hosts this insightful, enlightening and engrossing program that explores the question that has divided those who believe and those who do not: "Who do you say that I am?" Compelling dramatizations and lively commentary by scholars on both sides bring to life provocative questions concerning the identity of Jesus: Was Jesus Christ the living son of God or was he an extraordinary peasant caught up in the politics of His day? Is the historical record clear that there was a man named Jesus Christ who lived and taught in the land of Judea 2,000 years ago, or is it all just a marvelous fiction? Was the Jesus of the Gospels the Messiah promised by the Old Testament prophets, and did He live and die the way the Gospels tell us? Jesus: The Great Debate examines archeological and historical evidence as it traces the life of Jesus, whose message of peace, as recorded in the Bible, echoes through the ages. This program features expert commentary by such notables as Kay Arthur, author of God, Are You There?; Dr. John Ankerberg, author of The Facts on False Views of Jesus; Dr. Josh McDowell, author of New Evidence That Demands a Verdict; Jesus Seminar Fellow Dr. John Dominic Crossan (The Lost Tomb of Jesus) and Clint Blauer, author of Random Thoughts from the Cosmos. Included on this DVD is Secrets of the Dead Sea Scrolls, a 25-mins. featurette that raises tantalizing questions and reveals amazing secrets about the ancient texts that continue to intrigue and mystify people all over the world since they were discovered 60 years ago.
