Our Reasons to Believe Scripture Passage for today is Acts 19:8-10. It reads, "And he went into the synagogue, and spake boldly for the space of three months, disputing and persuading the things concerning the kingdom of God. But when divers were hardened, and believed not, but spake evil of that way before the multitude, he departed from them, and separated the disciples, disputing daily in the school of one Tyrannus. And this continued by the space of two years; so that all they which dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks."

Our Reasons to Believe quote for today is from Lee Strobel. He said, "In short, I didn’t become a Christian because God promised I would have an even happier life than I had as an atheist. He never promised any such thing.  Indeed, following him would inevitably bring divine demotions in the eyes of the world. Rather, I became a Christian because the evidence was so compelling that Jesus really is the one-and-only Son of God who proved his divinity by rising from the dead. That meant following him was the most rational and logical step I could possibly take." 

Our Reason to Believe powerpoint today is titled “The Divinity of Christ” part 15 from "The Handbook of Christian Apologetics" by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli.
