Jimmy DeYoung and Mart De Haan will be joined by several noted Bible scholars. Together they’ll explore questions skeptics often ask about Jesus. His friends said He walked on water. His critics said He was an imposter. Is there historical evidence to prove His claim to be God’s Son or was he just a man, or a fictitious character made up by a group of religious fanatics?

Combining the insights of Biblical authorities with visits to places Jesus lived and walked, we’ll give you some convincing arguments that will strengthen your faith and help you respond to the skeptics and seekers you encounter.
