S6E3 - Jesus Predicts his Death and Resurrection
Jesus's predictions of his own death and resurrection are of great interest to scholars and debated among them. Is it reasonable to infer that Jesus did, indeed, predict his fate or is it something that was fabricated later? Dr. Licona unpacks these claims.
[1:03] Jesus Predicting his Death and Resurrection
[3:18] Mark 8:30 & Mark 9:31
[7:14] Examples of Jewish Martyr Literature
[11:10] Contrast between Martyr Literature and Jesus’ Death
[12:55] Objection: Jesus’ predictive powers are not believable
[15:26] Objection: The church fabricated the predictions to avoid embarrassment
[18:29] Objection: The disciples didn’t anticipate Jesus’ resurrection
[22:54] Viewer Question: How do we treat the writings on Jesus that we don’t have? Does this hurt your case?
