A Reconciliation of the 4 Empty Tomb Accounts in the Gospels

Some have claimed that Jesus' empty tomb accounts by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are contradictory and impossible to reconcile.

Bible Contradiction? Luke’s Census and the Pater Patriae of 2 B.C.

In their quest to discount the validity of the Bible, some agnostics and atheists have claimed that Luke was mistaken about the census he referenced in his gospel, which some have attributed to a census taken under Quirinius in 6 A.D. that the ancient Jewish historian Josephus referenced.

How Are the Prophet Daniel, Antiochus IV, and Hanukkah Related?

In the 6th century B.C., Daniel prophesied the four kingdoms of Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome through Nebuchadnezzar’s dream in Daniel 2 and in his own visions and dreams in Daniel 7 and 8.

Who Wrote the Book of Isaiah? Isaiah’s “Holy One of Israel” Responds

Today's liberal revisionist scholars have posited that the book of Isaiah was authored by numerous unnamed persons over centuries, which stems from their anti-supernatural biases to the prophecies Isaiah made, many of which were fulfilled over a hundred years after he lived. Rather than accept his prophecies of the fall of Assyria, the rise and …

Daniel in the Liberal Revisionists’ Lions’ Den: When, Where, and Who Wrote the Book of Daniel?

Modern liberal revisionists can't stomach the view that Daniel correctly prophesied a variety of events that occurred decades and centuries after his time, so they have invented the notion (following the 3rd century A.D. pagan Porphyry) that Daniel was written by an imposter in the 2nd century B.C. who duped ancient Jews into thinking his …

Daniel’s Fulfilled Prophecies, Postmodernism, and Walking with Jesus Today

King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had a dream around 600 years before the appearance of Jesus, which he struggled to interpret.
