Defending the Resurrection of Jesus in Everyday Conversations
In this accessible apologetics video, I train Christians to defend the resurrection of Jesus in everyday conversations, focusing on the “minimal facts” approach I learned from Dr. Gary Habermas. My goal here is to help you remember some good talking points, so you’ll have them ready when you need them–even if that means tonight!
At this apologetics conference, I was joined by Dr. Craig Hazen, Dr. J.P. Moreland, Dr. John Mark Reynolds, and Sean McDowell. We delivered five plenary presentations over the course of a couple of days. It was a blast!
This full-length video was recorded at the second Reasonable Faith in an Uncertain World event hosted at Bridgeway Christian Church in Rocklin, California.

How to Remember the “5 Minimal Facts”
The five drawings can help you remember the "minimal facts" surrounding the resurrection of Jesus. Cycle through them in your head whenever you get a naturalistic challenge to Jesus' resurrection in everyday conversations.
BTW, that’s not clip art. I drew these out by hand just for my plenary talk at the event! :-)
