Can Skeptics Stump the Teacher?
It's the time of the year again when students return to school. Like a student dreading summer to end, many people view Jesus as a bad teacher and the institutional church as bad learners. No debate allowed. No chance to question things. No opportunity to engage in dialogue. Only top-down lectures filled with authoritative dogmas you are forced to blindly accept. That portrait of Jesus in our society contrasts with the portrait of Jesus in the Gospels themselves. Jesus the Teacher was willing to patiently engage in skeptical questions and debates, not only from his curious followers but also his hardened opponents. That same outstanding teacher invites your questions today.
