Join Devin & Melissa Pellew as they discuss topics related to biblical theology, Christian apologetics and worldview issues. Today, we will joined by Dr. Phil Fernandes of the Institute of Biblical Defense as we discuss recent attacks on the Historical Jesus and how we can think through these objections objectively and historically to see that we can trust that the Jesus of the Bible is exactly Who He claims to be.
Dr. Fernandes earned the following degrees: a Ph.D. in philosophy of religion from Greenwich University, a Master of Arts in Religion from Liberty University, and a Bachelor of Theology from Columbia Evangelical Seminary. He has publicly debated some of America’s leading atheists. He has lectured and debated in defense of the Christian worldview at some of America’s leading universities: Princeton, University of Washington, Oregon State University, and the University of North Carolina. Dr.Fernandes is a member of four professional societies: the Evangelical Theological Society, the Evangelical Philosophical Society, the International Society of Christian Apologetics, the International Society of Christian Apologetics, and the Society of Christian Philosophers.
Dr. Fernandes is the author of several books: The God Who Sits Enthroned: Evidence for God’s Existence; No Other Gods: A Defense of Biblical Christianity; God, Government, and the Road to Tyranny; Contend Earnestly for the Faith; and Theism vs. Atheism: The Internet Debate (co-authored with Dr. Michael Martin) and Hijacking the Historical Jesus: Answering Recent Attacks on the Jesus of the Bible.
