"Brand new book, looks like a great book to me. I don't say that lightly. Person of interest is the book, person of interest by Jay Warner, Wallace. He is known as America's foremost cold case detective. Think about that. America's foremost cold case that kind of a big deal, Jay Warner Wallace, how did you get that title? Because there's a lot of cold case detectives out there. They are working at they're working hard. Who said that you were America's foremost cold case detective? Well, I'm sure they're actually I mean, just to be a big deal in your own mind is sometimes where you start, right? So that's a lot of it. I think partly, it also comes from how many times I appeared on dateline, which is probably just by virtue of the fact that we're right down the road from NBCUniversal here in Los Angeles County. But I think I have been on dateline more than any other cold case detective. And so people start to think, well, yeah, you're the only one. No, there's tons of really good detectives out there who are probably even better than I am. But sometimes you just end up being the one who's the most publicized. Okay, so you're the one you're the best known cold case detective. If that. And you you've turned your attention as a cold case detective. To the Bible to Jesus, and how is this book person of interest, the new book, different from previous books? What do you do in this book? What do you try to do that you didn't do in the other books? Right. Well, I actually think this is no other book. I mean, everyone likes to think that, right? But I think there's actually no other book that does this. So here's what we're doing in this book. I've got another book called cold case Christian where I'm looking at the gospels themselves. Are they reliable eyewitness accounts related to Jesus? That's considering everything inside the crime scene called the New Testament. This book rejects that, says, know what. Well, it's pretend like all those have been destroyed. What would we know about Jesus outside the New Testament? And that's what this kind of book does. And I think what it does is it answers certain skeptical claims. Like, for example, one of the is Jesus just a copycat savior, another recreation of ancient mythologies. Well, I actually look at that as part of the fuse leading up to Jesus. There are a number. It's hundreds of ancient mythologies that have broad general similarities to each other and to Jesus. But they're only broad. They're not specific. So these people, these are the common expectations of people who think about God. And although they shape out differently, I might commonly expect that a Supernatural being will enter into the world in a Supernatural way. So these mythologies often show that God enters in a Supernatural way, but they're all very different in how they enter in. Well, Jesus also enters into in a Supernatural way. It turns out that the 15 common expectations of ancient people groups in thinking about God, they only have about 6 to ten similarities in the ancient myths, no ancient myth has more than ten of these. And some have as few as 6, but there's one person who shows up in history. Who actually embodies all 15 of the ancient expectations of people who believe in myths and it's Jesus of Nazareth. It doesn't make sense that God would meet those expectations given that we're thinking about these as people designed in the image of God who think about God and then he shows up matching our expectations about God. Well, I would go a step further or step backwards and say that because God created us in his image, he created us with those expectations. We long for meaning. We longed for love. We longed to be known. We longed for justice. We longed for truth. We long for all these things. And, you know, you say, where do those longings come from? And why is it that they're met in Jesus? It's a curious thing. And so it is no surprise that all these various religions and mythologies they're kind of echoes of the gospel, even if they happen before the gospel. And that's one of the things you talk about in the book. Yeah, as a matter of fact, what you're talking about too in your book. Look, it turns out right now, if you pull humans on Planet Earth, the vast majority, the vast, only about 7% of humans right now would say they're at atheists or agnostics on the surface of the planet. Everyone else believes in some type of higher power. I even cite studies that have been done now and Ivy League schools by non Christians by non theists who will demonstrate that, yes, it turns out that our default position as children is not atheism. Our default position is some form of theism young kids look at the created world and they infer a designer from what they think they see as design in the world around them. This is now been said by some researchers that this kind of theism is kind of an idea of a higher power is bred in the bone. These are my people who are not themselves believers. So this idea that we only teach our kids to believe in God is actually not true. They have a default position, which is inclined toward believing in a higher power, and these common expectations even of moderns are met in their most robust form in the person of Jesus. It's part of that fuse that's burning up toward the appeal. This is why Paul says on Mars hill. Hey, you folks are really religious. Do you believe in a lot of gods? I'm not here to show you who the real God is. And he's basically revealing to them as C. S. Lewis says your myths come from the minds of your human poets. The Christian myth is from the mind of God grounded in what we call real things. And there's word for myth is not Louis saying it's a lie. It's that this is the story that the narrative about God that actually is true compared to your myths and narratives about God that are untrue. And so that's what Jesus does. He appears, and he meets the expectations of the. Anytime the expected meets the expectations of the, you get a really good result. And so God shows up in a narrow window in which these mythologies are still being worshiped. And that window I show in the book in one chapter is so narrow this cultural fuse opens up a red zone window of opportunity from about 29 BC to about 70 AD and guess who shows up in the middle of that window. That is a wild concept. Can you say more about that about that window? Right. So if you take the overlap of when all the mythologies are being worshiped because they're not all worshiped forever, Osiris worship eventually stopped. But if you can capture a window in which all these mythologies are still actively being worshiped. So the expectations of people groups can be maximized in the person of Jesus. You get a window of several hundred years. If you overlap on that, the window of culture in the Roman Empire, which allows us a 200 year period of peace called the pax romana in which now we have the roads and postal service and tolerance within the empire and a window of opportunity for the message of Jesus to travel. Now the window becomes shorter. Then if you overlap the prophetic window of Daniel saying that the messiah will come between the reconstruction of Jerusalem and the destruction of the temple, now you've got another overlap. Now you end up with a window that I kid you not. I show it in the book is between 29 BC and 70 AD. I'm something has the opportunity to happen right there in that window that will change this is crazy stuff folks. I dare you to look at this. I actually came to a similar conclusion not as detailed in my own book. When I realized that Jesus arrives just as Jerusalem has been rebuilt. It's never been more spectacular. Boom, he shows up. He predicts it's going to be wiped out 40 years later. I mean, you think who made that up? God will be right back. And further canyons everywhere..

"J Warner Wallace has just come out with a book called person of interest. Seriously, this is an amazing book. I don't want to do all the talking. So if you don't mind, tell my audience, the premise, because it is actually really fascinating what you have done in this book person of interest. Okay, so here's the weird approach I took. I work cold cases and a lot of the cases I get are what are called no body murders or no body missings where somebody kills his wife or a wife killer's husband. And then claims that they ran off and they file a report of missing persons report, and that's how we take the case, and then years go by no one works the case. So just to be clear, some people know that some people don't. You are a cold case detective and you've been a cold case detective a real cold case detective for a long time. And you're bringing those skills to this issue. So I didn't want to interrupt, but just in case people think you're like blowing smoke, this is what you do. Well, I've done a bunch of these cases. They're actually on a date line. And several of these are no body missing persons cases. And so what happens is they get away with it for a while because nobody has ever discovered. There's no crime scene ever photographed is taken as a missing persons report. I opened the case, I had one case, Eric. I kid you not. The 30 years after the crime was occurred. She'd been missing for 30 years. Her family never once called our agency because the killer thoroughly convinced the family that she had just run off. Now, what do you do when you have no crime scene? No evidence from a crime scene. Don't even have a body. How do you make a case like that? Well, I always tell people that if she vanished on that day because he murdered her as like a bomb went off on that day. But moms are always preceded by fuses that burn slowly toward the detonation of the bomb. And afterwards, there is shrapnel all over the blast radius. So we'll make the case by simply examining the fuse and the fallout. So I thought, well, if Jesus is who he said he was. And let's imagine a future world where every single New Testament document has been destroyed. There are no bibles. There are no new testaments. It turns out in that kind of absent of crime scene, no New Testament. You could still determine the history and deity of Jesus from simply the fuse and fallout of history. That's what this book does. It takes a look at nothing other than just the history of unusual places that have Jesus fingerprints all over. I'm like literature art, music, education, science, and even non Christian religions. It turns out, you can reconstruct the story of Jesus from those aspects of culture

"Shame on me about the moon and stars that start the whole Thompson bars and kill that man and give me that awful way. Well, that was captain burger. Hey folks, I've got to tell you a secret about relief factor that the father son owners Pete and Seth. Taubman have never made a big deal about, but I think it is a big deal. I really do. They sell the three week quick start pack for just 1995 to anyone struggling from pain like neck shoulder back, hip or knee pain, 1995, about $1 a day. But what they haven't broadcasted much is that every time they sell a three week quick start, they lose money. In fact, they don't even break even until about four to 5 months after if you keep ordering it. Friends, that's huge. People don't keep ordering relief factor month after month if it doesn't work. So yes, Pete and Seth are literally on a mission to help as many people as possible deal with their pain. They really do put their money where their mouths are. So if you're in pain from exercise or even just getting older or the three week quick start from 1995, let's see if we can get you at a pain too, go to relief factor dot com relief factor dot com or call 805 108 three 8 four 805 108 three 8 four relief factor dot com. I use it, it works. If you leave hey there folks, I've got more good news. It doesn't end J Warner Wallace is my guest and then beyond that his book is called person of interest who is the person of interest, Jesus of Nazareth. This is a very exciting provocative and unfortunately important book. Well, let's welcome the program. Thanks so much for having me. If I didn't know Eric, that I was going to release this book. At the same time that Eric metaxas is going to have a new book. I would have said, you know, let's wait till January. What am I doing trying to release a book while you got a book? I was thinking the same thing about my book. So here's what we have to do. We have to tell people if you don't buy both books, you're crazy. You're dividing a friendship, you're destroying the body. Okay. That's right. Now look, seriously, this book, my book is not really about Jesus actually. So my book is, I said a low bar for my book is atheism dead. I just wanted to show in a way the scientific evidence for a creator. You don't have to say it's Jesus. You don't have to say, but to say there is no creator of any kind is at this point preposterous. I then talk about biblical archeology, which makes it really clear that the Bible is certainly no collection of folktales and it's probably totally historical, even though you can't prove that it's totally historical, and then I talk about atheism, but I do not go into what you go into in this book. So I think we could pitch it as their companion books. Like my book and you're like, huh, okay, so yeah I am thinking about this Jesus guy. Anything I could read about that? Hey, J Warner Wallace has just come out with a book called person of interest. Seriously, this is an amazing book. I don't want to do all the talking.

"You think who made that up? God, we'll be right back. Further canyons everywhere. I've looked at clouds that way. Oh, hello. I'm talking to J Warner Wallace as the Eric metaxas show, go to my website, Eric metaxas dot com, sign up for the newsletter so we can send you all of these interviews because you want them and because you want to share them with your Friends, Jay Warner Wallace, what should we talk about in our final moments together today? Well, I just want to encourage people that all of us have the ability to make a case for Jesus. This is not something that's unusual. I mean, scripture shows us. This is the kind of casemaker Jesus was. I mean, think about it. After the resurrection and acts one, it says that Jesus spent 40 additional days with the disciples, giving them many and depending on the translation and convincing proofs. That's the Greek where we use for evidence. Now, they put that for a second. He's just resurrected from the grave. Do you think I really need more evident apparently? Jesus is going to give me 40 days more of evidence. Now that's an evidential approach so that even when John the Baptist has got doubts and sends his disciples, Jesus, he wants to know Jonathan, are you the one? If you're Jesus, are you a little upset with that? You're thinking to yourself, really, John, your cousin, who baptized me, who saw the spirit of God really? You have doubts. You want to tell you what? Go back and tell John, what you just saw. Any cites the miracles he had worked in front of John's disciples. That's a very evidential approach. I think that what we're doing Eric is you and I are writing books that I think are important to the church even right now at a time when the church doesn't know how important they are. There's an entire generation who wants to know not just what is true, but please tell me why you think it's true. Because this is what the culture is doing. The culture is making claims about all kinds of things and saying they're based in evidence are based in science. Yet you religious folks, you want us to believe this stuff blindly. That was never the request of Jesus. Jesus would testimony in the first century in the book of X is not your personal experience with Jesus or how he changed your life. Go read the book of X, it's the eyewitness accounts of their resurrection. Direct evidence was offered by way of eyewitnesses. Blessed Thomas are those who will not have seen this, but through your testimony will know this is true. Direct evidence. That's what that testimony is. We have to make a effort to give young people the evidence for why that exists, which is what your books about right now. And why Christianity is true. And that's really what we're trying to do. These kinds of works. Well, and again, I want to say that you can't force people to believe, which is why I love America because at its core, we have religious liberty, the idea is that, look, if it's true, somehow it has to stand on its own or we have to encourage people to think about it, but you can not force someone to believe. But if you're unwilling to look at the evidence, if you're unwilling to look through Galileo's telescope, I suspect you have a bias. And so I want to say to people, I really do dare you to look at the evidence with an open mind. There are many books, not just my new book and J Warner Wallace's new book, but you could start there and see what books we've read. But the evidence is overwhelming. It's stunning. It's so stunning that I myself was stunned by how stunning it was. When I wrote my book, I said, I can not believe I didn't know this. I can't believe nobody seems to know this. It's almost, I think we're just living in an unprecedentedly exciting time in history, honestly. That it's possible for us to know these things. You know, there are no cold case detectives, you know, in the 18th century. There's something about where we are now that is enabling us. And I think God's doing it for various strange purposes, because in some ways the world's gotten darker. In some ways, science is more advanced. So many things we can do some of the things I can talk to you via Skype on this program. So there's a lot here. But honestly, I think the big news is we're living in very exciting times. And if you're interested in really knowing, is there a God who created the universe who loves you and who has a plan for your life, like really, I'm here to tell you and Jay Warner's here to tell you, yes, you can actually know that. It is true. We know it to be true. And we want you to follow what we followed to get there. Jay Warner, Wallace, congratulations on an important book person of interest. Thank you, my friend. Thanks for having me, Eric. I really appreciate you..

"Folks, brand new book, looks like a great book to me. I don't say that lately. Person of interest is the book. Person of interest by J Warner Wallace. He is known as America's foremost cold case detective. Think about that. America's foremost cold case that kind of a big deal, J Warner Wallace, how did you get that title? Because there's a lot of cold case detectives out there. They are working at they're working hard. Who said that you were America's foremost cold case detective? Well, I'm sure they're actually I mean, just to be a big deal in your own mind is sometimes where you start, right? So that's a lot of it. I think part of it also comes from how many times I appeared on dateline, which is probably just by virtue of the fact that we're right down the road from NBCUniversal here in Los Angeles County. But I think I have been on dateline more than any other cold case detective. And so people start to think, well, yeah, you're the only one. No, there's tons of really good detectors out there who are probably even better than I am. But sometimes just ends up being the one who's the most publicized. Okay, so you're the best known cold case detective. If that. And you you've turned your attention as a cold case detective. To the Bible to Jesus, and how is this book person of interest, the new book, different from previous books? What do you do in this book? What do you try to do that you didn't do in the other books? Right. I actually think this is no other book. I mean, everyone likes to think that, right? But I think there's actually no other book that does this. So here's what we're doing in this book. I've got another book called case Christian where I'm looking at the gospels themselves. Are they reliable eyewitness accounts related to Jesus? That's considering everything inside the crime scene called the New Testament. This book rejects that, says no what pretend like all those have been destroyed. What would we know about Jesus outside the New Testament? And that's what this kind of book does. And I think what it does is it answers certain skeptical claims. Like, for example, one of the is Jesus just a copycat savior, another recreation of ancient mythologies. Well, I actually look at that as part of the fuse leading up to Jesus. There are a number. It's hundreds of ancient mythologies that have broad general similarities to each other and to Jesus. But they're only broad. They're not specific. So these people would these are the common expectations of people who think about God. And although they shape out differently, I might commonly expect that a Supernatural being will enter into the world in a Supernatural way. So these mythologies often show that God enters in a Supernatural way, but they're all very different in how they enter in. Well, Jesus also enters into a Supernatural way. It turns out that the 15 common expectations of ancient people groups in thinking about God, they only have about 6 to ten similarities in the ancient myths, no ancient myth has more than ten of these. And some have as few as 6, but there's one person who shows up in history. Who actually had bodies all 15 of the ancient expectations of people who believe in myths. And it's Jesus of Nazareth. And it doesn't make sense that God would meet those expectations given that we're thinking about these as people designed in the image of God who think about God, and then he shows up matching our expectations about God. Well, I would go a step further or a step backwards and say that because God created us in his image, he created us with those expectations. We long for meaning. We longed for love. We longed to be known. We longed for justice. We longed for truth. We longed for all these things. And, you know, you say, where do those longings come from? And why is it that they're met in Jesus? It's a curious thing. And so it is no surprise that all these various religions and mythologies, they're kind of echoes of the gospel, even if they happen before the gospel and that's one of the things you talk about in the book. Yeah, as a matter of fact, what you're talking about too in your book. Look, it turns out right now, if you pull humans on Planet Earth, the vast majority, the vast, only about 7% of humans right now would say they're at atheists or agnostics on the surface of the planet. Everyone else believes in some type of higher power. I even cite studies that have been done now and Ivy League schools by non Christians by non theists who will demonstrate that yes, it turns out that our default position as children is not atheism. Our default position is some form of theism young kids look at the created world and they infer a designer from what they think they see as design in the world around them. This is now been said by some researchers that this kind of theism is kind of an idea of a higher power is bred in the bone. These are by people who are not themselves believers. So this idea that we only teach our kids to believe in God is actually not true. They have a default position, which is inclined toward believing in a higher power, and these common expectations even of moderns are met in their most robust form in the person of Jesus. It's part of that fuse that's burning up toward the this is why Paul says on Mars hill. Hey, you folks are really religious. Do you believe in a lot of gods? I'm here to show you who the real God is. And he's basically revealing to them as C. S. Lewis says your myths come from the minds of your human poets. The Christian myth is from the mind of God grounded in what we call real things. And it's worth remit is not Louis saying it's a lie. It's that this is the story that the narrative about God that actually is true compared to your myths and narratives about God that are untrue. And so that's what Jesus does. He appears, and he meets the expectations of the specters. Anytime the expected meets the expectations of the, you get a really good result. And so God shows up in a narrow window in which these mythologies are still being worshiped. And that window I show in the book in one chapter is so narrow. This cultural fuse opens up a red zone window of opportunity from about 29 BC to about 70 AD and guess who shows up in the middle of that window. That is a wild concept. Can you say more about that about that window? Right. So if you take the overlap of when all the mythologies are being worshiped because they're not worship forever, Osiris worship eventually stopped. But if you can capture a window in which all these mythologies are still actively being worshiped. So the expectations of people groups can be maximized in the person of Jesus. You get a window for several hundred years. If you overlap on that, the window of culture in the Roman Empire, which allows us a 200 year period of peace called the pax romana, in which now we have the roads and postal service and tolerance within the empire and a window of opportunity for the message of Jesus to travel that out the window becomes shorter. Then if you overlap the prophetic window of Daniel saying that the messiah will come between the reconstruction of Jerusalem and the destruction of the temple, now you've got another overlap. Now you end up with a window that I kid you not. I show it in the book is between 29 BC and 70 AD. I'm something has the opportunity to happen right there in that window that will change this is crazy stuff, folks. I dare you to look at this. I actually came to a similar conclusion not as detailed in my own book. When I realized that Jesus arrives just as Jerusalem has been rebuilt. It's never been more spectacular, boom. He shows up. He predicts it's going to be wiped out, 40 years later. I mean, you think who made that up? God, we'll be right back. Further canyons everywhere..

'Person of Interest' Author J. Warner Wallace Describes His New Book

"Person of interest is the book. Person of interest by J Warner Wallace. He is known as America's foremost cold case detective. Think about that. America's foremost cold case that kind of a big deal, J Warner Wallace, how did you get that title? Because there's a lot of cold case detectives out there. They are working at they're working hard. Who said that you were America's foremost cold case detective? Well, I'm sure they're actually I mean, just to be a big deal in your own mind is sometimes where you start, right? So that's a lot of it. I think part of it also comes from how many times I appeared on dateline, which is probably just by virtue of the fact that we're right down the road from NBCUniversal here in Los Angeles County. But I think I have been on dateline more than any other cold case detective. And so people start to think, well, yeah, you're the only one. No, there's tons of really good detectors out there who are probably even better than I am. But sometimes just ends up being the one who's the most publicized. Okay, so you're the best known cold case detective. If that. And you you've turned your attention as a cold case detective. To the Bible to Jesus, and how is this book person of interest, the new book, different from previous books? What do you do in this book? What do you try to do that you didn't do in the other books? Right. I actually think this is no other book. I mean, everyone likes to think that, right? But I think there's actually no other book that does this. So here's what we're doing in this book. I've got another book called case Christian where I'm looking at the gospels themselves. Are they reliable eyewitness accounts related to Jesus? That's considering everything inside the crime scene called the New Testament. This book rejects that, says no what pretend like all those have been destroyed. What would we know about Jesus outside the New Testament? And that's what this kind of book does. And I think what it does is it answers certain skeptical

"Considerable skills as a cold case detective to the person of Jesus, the title of the book is person of interest, what else is in the book that we can talk about on this program? There's so much. I just don't know where to start. It's loaded with good stuff. Well, I can tell you the literature is one of those things we talk about in the fallout, right? We talk about how much impact Jesus is. There's no other historical figure who has been written about more than Jesus of Nazareth. You can check this with the Library of Congress. You can just check it on a Google book search. You will find that the second place finisher is pretty far below Jesus of Nazareth. Not only that. The disk from the writings in the first 300 years. I don't think people realize that there are more non Christian voices on ancient manuscripts in the first 300 years of Christianity than there are Christian voices speaking about Jesus of Nazareth. There's a sense in which not all you have are these Christian sources. Not true. So I'm going to list in the book and an illustration of all of the non Christian sources. That goes all the way from the non canonical authors all the way to Greek and Persian and Egyptian and Roman sources to even Jewish sources. Most of what they say about Jesus is not flattering, but they have to stand on the claims of the gospels in order to criticize the gospels. The same way that the rumor mill about eldest and all of the books that have been written about Elvis, end up affirming the basic life biography of Elvis, like, for example, they might say, yeah. And all this on this date, he stayed at a hotel in Memphis. And then I'll say in a net during that time, he was sleeping with so and so. Well, the sleeping with so and so part is just a rumor. But you have to affirm a fact first that he was in Memphis on that night, which is true. The same kind of thing happens with the ancient sources about Jesus. They'll change the claims. They will start a rumor. But they build those rumors on true claims so that you can reconstruct the story of Jesus from the common true claims of all of the rumors. And that's what's so great about the evidence for Jesus. You have to erase more than just the New Testament. You have to erase the history of early literature that's also written about Jesus. What this reminds me of, I mean, when I write my books and I wrote this recent book and in this book that you've written, if you're looking at things from a legal standpoint, not a scientific standpoint, but from legal evidence, you can prove the case. You can make a more than a reasonable case that God exists that Jesus existed that he rose from the dead. Most people, including people of faith, they're not aware of that. They think I have to quote unquote, take it on faith as though faith means parking my brains at the door. And it's just the opposite. If you park your brains in the door, you will not be a Christian or a believer in the Bible. Because you kind of have to, at this point, let's put it this way. At this point, the evidence is so overwhelming that I think it's really troubling to people who are atheists who are somehow anti Christian. And they're forced to look away, like the folks who refuse to look through Galileo's telescope. They said, I don't want to know, because if I look through there, it's going to influence me. And so I dare people to read this book, person of interest or my book is atheism dead. I dare you because if you're interested in the truth and everybody says, sure, I'm interested in the truth, but you can't prove it. Well, I dare you to look at the evidence because I think the reason you don't want to is because it's challenging something. It has to do with a person's will. They don't want to be troubled. So they think I'm going to look away. I'm going to let it ride. I'm going to ignore it. Well, I remember the standard is different, right? So standard does not be on a possible doubt for anything in the highest levels of criminal trials. It's beyond a reasonable doubt. What I mean is we tell jurors that I'm going to tell you up front. I'm not going to be able to answer every question. I still have open questions about cases. And in no body missings, unless he confesses, I'm not going to be able to tell you how we did it, how it got rid of her body. How we moved her car. I had these open questions in a case. Now, we found him guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. But there were still open questions that needed to be asked. Now later he confessed to this, and he gave us all that information. But at the time of the conviction, he hadn't yet. And so we have to be able to make a decision to render a verdict legally based on the fact that you may still have open unanswered questions. But that's beyond a possible death. That's not our standard. It's beyond a reasonable doubt. Now, the same thing is going to be true for your faith in Jesus. Do I still have open questions? Theological, of course, we all do. The more you study theology, the more questions you're probably going to have. But you have enough evidence to make a verdict to make a decision beyond a reasonable doubt. What often keeps us. And this is why we have a vor dire process of selecting jurors. We are trying to eliminate the jurors who hold presuppositional biases that will make them act either unfairly toward the prosecution or toward the defense. Both teams are trying to make sure we eliminate the far edges of the group that are presuppositional biased against us. Well, you've got to realize when you were sharing the gospel with people, but you give it my book or you give Eric's book. You're going to find that there are people who hold those biases. And you can not remove those by argument often. Those are the things that I typically will model Christ and pray about because it turns out that it's God who moves the heart toward the reasonable center that allows us to hear the gospel to begin with. But I think these kinds of books are important for those people who got as already moving and this need to know..

"Think anyone is teaching this to our young people. No one sees this. So dependent upon Christian worldview as a matter of fact, it's been argued and I think dimension suzu wrote this quite well. That Christendom in Europe is what causes the scientific revolution that's true. But then you hear, well, look, everyone in Europe and the 16th and 17th century was a Christian. That's not the point. There were more people outside of Europe. Why didn't science explode in Asia? Why didn't the science explode and Persia? I mean, look, there are many places that in some ways we're more advanced than 16th and 17th century Europe. What is it about that time? And you're right, so many people have written about it. I was not aware of this until I was researching my own book, and it's one of these things that it's such huge news that we need to shout it from the rooftops because most people just have some baked in idea that the opposite is true. So I'm glad that that's one of the things you go into. Well, how about this? In terms of education. Now, I don't get people to realize that modern education, as you know at the modern university, as you know, it came out of three universities planted by Christ followers at Bologna, Paris and Oxford. Those three universities gave birth to the 24 daughter universities from which the scientists and the scientific revolution emerged. This is entirely the buyers was great about it. If you would research right now, the top 15 universities in the world today, you would find there all founded by Christ followers. The top 75 of the top 100 universities in fact were founded by Christ's fault. Here's what's cool. If you were to visit those campuses, you would find that the original buildings in which they taught students still exist. And on those buildings, you will find the images of Jesus that stained glass of Jesus. The inscriptions of scripture from Jesus. You can reconstruct the story of Jesus just from the campuses of the top 15 universities in the world today. If you wanted to erase Jesus from history, it would take more than just the science fathers. It would take more than the scriptures. You'd have to destroy the top 15 campuses because they actually have the images and story of Jesus embedded on their buildings. I mean, wow, there's a lot here. The book is called person of interest. Why Jesus still matters in a world that rejects the Bible? I have to confess that I was myself when I first in two of my books I wrote about the resurrection not in the new one. But I was myself genuinely astonished that you could use logic to effectively prove the case of the resurrection. I was sure that that had to be something you just take on faith, quote unquote. But a lot of these things are canards. They're just rumors, their myths are terrible ideas. And when you start using logic, so I want to challenge people dare to be logical. You'll get scared by what you find if you don't want to find Jesus. The book is person of interest, why Jesus still matters in a world that rejects the Bible will be right back with Jay Warner Wallace, don't go away. And you're a zero. Make like a mister big dig. Hey, folks Eric, taxes here. Joe Biden and the Democrats have laid out the most socialist agenda, our country has ever seen. Instead of following president Trump's blueprint that had the economy booming, the Dems are going to raise taxes, increase regulations and skyrocket and.

"I've got more good news. It doesn't end J Warner Wallace is my guest and then beyond that his book is called person of interest who is the person of interest, Jesus of Nazareth. This is a very exciting provocative and unfortunately important book, J onea Wallace, welcome to the program. Thanks so much for having me. If I didn't know Eric, that I was going to release this book. At the same time that Eric metaxas is going to have a new book. I would have said, you know, let's wait till January. What am I doing trying to release a book while you got a book? I was thinking the same thing about my book. So here's what we have to do. We have to tell people if you don't buy both books, you're crazy. You're dividing a friendship, you're destroying the body. Okay. That's right. Now look, seriously, this book, my book is not really about Jesus actually. So my book is, I said a low bar for my book is atheism dead. I just wanted to show in a way the scientific evidence for a creator. You don't have to say it's Jesus. You don't have to say, but to say there is no creator of any kind is at this point preposterous. I then talk about biblical archeology, which makes it really clear that the Bible is certainly no collection of folktales and it's probably totally historical, even though you can't prove that it's totally historical, and then I talk about atheism, but I do not go into what you go into in this book. So I think we could pitch it as their companion books. Like my book and you're like, huh, okay, so yeah I am thinking about this Jesus guy. Anything I could read about that, hey, J Warner Wallace has just come out with a book called person of interest. Seriously, this is an amazing book. I don't want to do all the talking. So if you don't mind, tell my audience, the premise, because it is actually really fascinating what you have done in this book person of interest. Okay, so here's the weird approach I took. I work cold cases and a lot of the cases I get are what are called no body murders or no body missings where somebody kills his wife or a wife kills her husband. And then claims that they ran off and they file a report of missing persons report, and that's how we take the case. And then years go by no one works the case. There's no way you just to be clear. Some people know that some people don't. You are a cold case detective, and you've been a cold case detective a real cold case detective for a long time. And you're bringing those skills to this issue. So I didn't want to interrupt, but just in case people think you're like blowing smoke, this is what you do. Well, I've done a bunch of these cases. They're actually on a date line. And several of these are no body missing persons cases. And so what happens is they get away with it for a while because nobody has ever discovered. There's no crime scene ever photographed is taken as a missing persons report. I opened the case, I had one case, Eric. I kid you not. The 30 years after the crime was occurred. She'd been missing for 30 years. Her family never once called our agency because the killer thoroughly convinced the family that she had just run off. Now, what do you do when you have no crime scene? No evidence from a crime scene. Don't even have a body. How do you make a case like that? Well, I always tell people that if she vanished on that day because he murdered her as like a bomb went off on that day. But moms are always preceded by fuses that burn slowly toward the detonation of the bomb. And afterwards, there is shrapnel all over the blast radius. So we'll make the case by simply examining the fuse and the fallout. So I thought, well, if Jesus is who he said he was. And let's imagine a future world where every single New Testament document has been destroyed. There are no bibles. There are no new testaments. It turns out in that kind of absent of crime scene, no New Testament. You could still determine the history and deity of Jesus from simply the fuse and fallout of history. That's what this book does. It takes a look at nothing other than just the history of unusual places that have Jesus fingerprints all over. I'm like literature art, music, education, science, and even non Christian religions. It turns out, you can reconstruct the story of Jesus from those aspects of culture in a way that may be a surprising to people, because I'm not just going to show that he's had big impact. I'm talking about being able to reconstruct the story from those aspects of culture. Okay. And that's what we're doing. So what you're doing, it's a beautiful thing. You're using logic. The same logic we use as you've said in crime detection. We want to know. People want to know what happened. We demand justice. And in most cases, there is a way to get there, including in what you call or what is called cold cases. There's no body, what do we do? You know what we do, and you have applied your considerable skills to the murder, the execution of Jesus of Nazareth. So what is in this book? I mean, there's so much in here. I was just looking through the illustrations. It's actually fair. I would say that makes it like a really fun read because there's so many different pieces of information. So let us let us know what is in here. Yeah, well, actually, there's over 400 illustrations in the book because that's just the way I think of things in front of a jury. And zone was good enough to let me spend two years building the jury presentations. And then I wrote a book from those stage presentations. That's what that book is. So there's usually every page has got some type of graphic element if it doesn't have a list. But here's what I think you'll find interesting. I heard you recently be an interview about your book. Let's just say Graham, for example. And we talk about the impact of science and how science can demonstrate, well, I don't think people realize that science, the history of science is standing on the shoulders of Jesus of Nazareth and his followers. As a matter of fact, the fathers of the major disciplines in science, all of the major disciplines, from a cosmology from a chemistry, biology, all the way to quantum mechanics and computer sciences. It turns out the fathers of those major scientific disciplines are all Christ followers. Hang on. What you just said, this is the class they think like you say that and we move on. Ladies and gentlemen, did you hear what J Warner Wallace just said, I touch on most of this, not all of what you said in my own book. This is huge news. This is huge news. And when you say Christ's followers, I mean, I would go farther and say that most of them, these are the fathers of these various disciplines and science were profound, devout Christians. That's not the kind of thing most people think. Most people think about this. Diverges from faith. Yes, and you know, those people were sort of out that they wrote in their personal letters and journals about Jesus of Nazareth. If all you had were the personal writings of the science fathers, you would get more information about Jesus than you get from the church fathers. And I have a list. I've never heard of that. That's amazing. That's amazing. Seriously, that's pretty cool. Wow. Well, it is. And so that's why I'm saying, you'd have to destroy more than the New Testament to get rid of Jesus. You'd have to destroy the entire history of science as we know it. I don't think anyone is teaching this to our young people. No one sees this. So dependent upon Christian worldview as a matter of fact, it's been argued and I think dimension suzu wrote this quite well. That.

"And the reality is that all of these people that we have mentioned, whether it's the bushes or anybody, they believe that they're saving America from Donald Trump and his minions like you and me and Steve Bannon. They believe this. Let's face it, they believe it. If they believe that what does that mean? What does it mean about their other beliefs? Well, I mean, look, it means they're cuckoo for cocoa puffs. We know that, but go ahead. They believe the people are a threat to America. They believe that the experts and the people who went to the better source of schools and the sociologists and the teachers unions and the diversity coordinators and the government bureaucrats and the federal bureaucrats, the deep state, the FBI, they are the real America. The people see it Walmart and the people you see at shopping malls, people see as firemen. They're not the real America. Your mother and father and my mother and father don't really deserve the same kind of vote as Nancy Pelosi. Let's be honest, this is true, John, what you just said, it's absolutely true. But see, the problem is places like Yale, they made the mistake. They were so liberal that they let in white nationalist racist bigot freaks. Like the two of us, for example. And now we are in the immortal words of, I guess was Apocalypse Now. Kurt's Kurtz. He's the weed up commands took us. Basically, they are in big trouble right now, because there are enough folks out here who see what's going on. And this is going to take time. This can't happen overnight, but it is unraveling. Who thought that Tucker Carlson would be doing this big story on this? Who thought that you'd be writing this? We're here now. And it's not looking good for our friends on the side against we the people. Well, they have shown their hand. I mean, you're tearing mcauliffe in a debate saying, parents should not control what their children are taught in school. It's none of their business. Well, thank you. Thank you for making that perfectly clear. Now that was clear when they created the public school system in the late 19th century, Horace Mann set, the creator of mass public schooling, Horace Mann, said our job is to save these children from their in very big parents and teach them to be good liberal post Christian Americans. Okay, wait a minute. This is way too important. We're gonna end this segment. Tomorrow or the next day, you and I need to talk about what you just brought up. Folks, keep listening. Thank you, John. Hey folks, I've got to tell you a secret about relief factor that the father son owners Pete and Seth. Talbott have never made a big deal about, but I think it is a big deal. I really do. They sell the three week quick start pack for just 1995 to anyone struggling from pain like neck shoulder back, hip or knee pain, 1995, about $1 a day. But what they haven't broadcasted much is that every time they sell a three week quick start, they lose money. In fact, they don't even break even until about four to 5 months after if you keep ordering it. Friends, that's huge. People don't keep ordering relief factor month after month if it doesn't work. So yes, Pete and Seth are literally on a mission to help as many people as possible deal with their pain. They really do put their money where their mouths are. So if you're in pain from exercise or even just getting older, or the three week quick start.

"Texas. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to our two. Our two is going to be different from our one in that it's going to follow our one. Our one never follows our one hour one actually is our one. But our two always follows our one, but here's where it gets tricky. In our one, we were talking to John's merak in an hour two, we continued talking to John Merrick after the segment. We talked to Jay Warner Wallace. And by the way, he is one of the best guests on this show, Jay Warner Wallace. But maybe the best guest is Jon's Merrick. So let's just go to John John. We'd love you to conclude some of those sentences that you were speaking just before we went to the newsbreak. Sure. There was a small core group of people on January 6th who believed they were going to Washington to D.C. to serve as a deputized militia force that they thought Donald Trump would invoke under the insurrection act and they would help with reverse the steal of the election. These people were bonkers. They maybe may have been well meaning at their core, but they were bonkers. These people need to be investigated. And they are all going to jail. Except the guy who led them, who organized this crackpot conspiracy. His name is Stewart Rhodes. He was the head of oath keepers. He was the guy who told them what to do, who told them where to go, who told them where to hide weapons that they were going to be the secret militia force to restore Donald Trump as president. It was all his idea, and the FBI is not pressing any charges against him. The January 6th committee has not asked him to testify. They want Steve Bannon to testify, who hadn't worked in The White House for three years when this happened, but they don't want Stewart roads. The guy who apparently organized the one part of January 6th that was genuinely crazy was apparently an FBI plan. So this was so this seems to be a sting operation. This was a sting operation that they said, let's find some crazy people who might go for this. And then if we can lead them to carry a couple of zip ties, that's the end of America, zig Kyle. Isn't that a sweet little plot? It's beautiful. And there's another one. Ray eps. This, by the way, if you want more news on this, go to revolver news. Darren Beatty and revolver news has done all the great reporting on this. Mike Huckabee has been citing, if there was one guy and we have him on videotape, going up to the protesters outside, saying, we have to go in the capitol. It's about the constitution. We have to storm the capitol. And some of them were saying, no, I don't want to do that. Others are saying, are you a federal agent? They're actually asking that on camera. It turns out he was a federal agent. He was a federal agent. What are the odds of that, John that he was a federal agent ray eps? And what is ray Epstein today? Ray, I'm just sitting at home, drinking his coffee because no charges have been filed against him. But the people who listen to him when he said, we have to storm the capitol. They're all in jail for in solitary confinement. The guy who told them to do it, the guy who ran around basically shoving them in through the door. He sitting around watching the view. He's drinking chamomile tea because apparently he's a federal agent who recruited the people to do the fake insurrection on January 6th. That is how much we investigated by a stalinist purge committee, a stalinist show trial organized with a democratic Congress. How much do you think democratic leadership like Nancy Pelosi knows about this? 100%. Furthermore Pelosi, you think she knows all about this? I think she knows what I think Liz Cheney knows about it. I would suspect that the George W. Bush and his family know about it. I think the Republican establishment conspired with the Democrat leadership to try to destroy the Donald Trump movement to try to destroy the nationalist American first movement to clear it out of the way. It was a mistake we let them get there. We let them vote in 2016. We weren't ready to steal the election. Fine. It was a terrible mistake. It will never never happen again. The people will never have a voice again, the oligarchy must close ranks. We must censor the media. We must get people fired. We must make everyone take the vaccine. This country's gotten too disorderly the people are getting too loud. We have to show them who's really in charge. It's us. Shouldn't it be it is we? Now listen tough guy. I want to ask you another question. And by the way, I don't know that it is, I think that usage that you're correct actually. But let me just tell you. No, no, no, let me just say, let me say Nancy Pelosi, I don't believe she's going to run again in 20 22. She wanted to go out like Queen Victoria. You know, she's been in there since I don't know. I think since since mcclellan was a general, she's been in there, but I think she decided in 2022, it's going to be such a bloodbath. She doesn't want any part of it. So she's going to go to the non feces infested part of San Francisco. It's very expensive to get there. But I believe, as a result of what happened yesterday, in Virginia, the election of junkin and so on, I don't believe that she sees a way out. Except to leave. I just have to say that I hold Nancy Pelosi goes out, not like Queen Victoria, but like Catherine the Great. I know what you mean. I have to tell you, honestly, that if she and others knew of this sort of thing, let's be honest, okay? We know that they firmly believe that they were saving America. I'll give them that. In committing these crimes in committing these crimes against we the people, they believed they were saving America. You know, good people, bad people, always believe they're doing good things. Hitler didn't think, oh, I'm demon possessed. That's why I hate the Jews. He didn't realize that. He thought he's doing a great thing. He has been anointed, you know, he's riding the vector of history..

Eighteen with shaun mcdowell is dealing with the lgbtq issue and how to have constructive conversations about that topic. You wanna be a part of that as well. Go to cross examined outdoor click on online courses. We're talking to my friend. J warner wallace. The book person of interest. You need to get before the break. We're talking about the galileo situation and the idea that christians are anti science jim. You're you're saying they weren't anti science. You're saying that it was a one scientific community arguing with another scientific community and then how did the church get involved in that. So per pope urban as it was actually somebody who admire galileo. And that's usually the combative figures in this combative situation. It's galileo and pope urban the eighth and now for pope urban the eighth actually admired the work of galileo but remember urban actually adopted the view that was held by most thinkers of natural philosophy. That the that the solar system was a geo centric solar system everything revolves around the earth. That was a view that he held because that was what was helped by most people. Now so that the notion comes up and actually. He had authorized galilea to go hit approved of the treaties. That galley was going to ride on us but he wanted to galileo to propose this offer it as simply a hypothesis now. Galileo was an interesting character and much of why he was treated the way he was by pope over to the church had more to do with his character and the way he engaged pope urban than it actually did was his theories because they were a couple of of of christian theorist christian scientists who preceded galileo who held similar views and we're not treated harshly as galileo. Galileo actually wrote a document in which marked the pope and that that actually led to the way he was treated ultimately by the publicity one thing about it in the end galileo himself saw no friction between his work as a scientist in his views as a christian is not as though after doing this scientific work after postulating this theory of the solar system galileo then left his fate because he said there's no way of these things to be compatible as fact as a matter of fact he actually died in good standing in his fate because he believed jesus to be who he said he was and he saw no rub between his religious beliefs as a christian and what he discovered as a scientist and if you think about the role that the catholic church play regardless of this episode with galileo and again that was really based more on personality friction between urban and galileo than anything else remember that the roman the roman catholic church roman catholic church was involved in education as a matter of fact universities founded by the church..

"Of what i was doing examining the case for jesus was looking in those aspects of culture looking places that maybe some people wouldn't look for evidence right and so that was really my goal in writing this book but about halfway through i realized. Wow you know. This isn't a book about the evidence for jesus. This is a book about why jesus matters and i go back to my publisher and i said hey. I want to change the direction of the book. i'm known for examining evidence mccoll case detective. I get all that but but really. This is why. Jesus matters. And i said i want to rewrite that the subtitle i wanna rewrite the entire go back chapter-by-chapter rethink chapter and. They said they were they allowed to do that. So i went back here. They they expected me to do economic cold-case forensic study of the evidence for jesus. But as i was riding in our realized. This is bigger than that. This is this is it turns out all the stuff that i would have said as an atheist matter most in life which would have been literature art music education science those are the very areas that are forever transformed by the worldview initiated by jesus of nazareth at how that world was fleshed out in in real life by the followers of jesus and so it turns out that. Even if you're somebody who says well. I'm not sure that jesus matters or i'm not sure that any of the scripture matters will well the things that you do think matter are actually the consequence of the life of jesus of nazareth. So it's really hard to avoid. Jesus as somebody who matters. And that's what. I really wanted to communicate in this book and what amy said i thought was powerful that there's something beautiful about jesus and when we write books that make a case for christianity from evidential perspective. We sometimes miss that. And i think where it becomes more obvious when you get into those things that we typically associated as the human project toward beauty. You know it's literature it's art. It's music those expressions of of creativity that we look at it and say. Wow that's just so beautiful and it's in those expressions that we can see the beauty of jesus sometimes where maybe we wouldn't see it if we just were examining. The evidence is in a more stark way. So what i love about. This opportunity is it. Begin examining those aspects of culture that show the jesus more than just who he said he was. He's actually as beautiful as beautiful. Could be and you will get the weight of that. When you get person of interest ladies and gentlemen in fact as jim just mentioned he investigated six areas in this book that jesus has had a monumental impact on the six areas are art music education science and other world religions. We'll talk a little bit about that after the break. If you want to get this book and you do trust me you wanna go to person of interest book dot com person.

"Astor greg laurie with an invitation to get your heart right with the lord. And if you'd like to do that today. Pastor greg will help you in just a moment before. Today's edition of a new beginning concludes. But if you missed any portion of today's study a message called the foundation of life you can hear the whole program again online at harvest dot org or download an mp three again that's at harvest dot org. Well it's such a privilege to have a good friend here in the studio with us today. He's retired cold case. Detective j warner wallace. Jim wallace and he's just finished. His latest book called person of interest. Why jesus still matters in a world that rejects the bible. He investigates the person of christ using his training and skill as a detective. It's it's a unique look at the face and you know jim. Your book is so full of facts. Cold hard facts but when people come to the lord they come by faith so how does a factual case supportive. Faith decision is what we do in jury. Trials were constantly saying. Hey we're going to give you enough good evidence to make the proper inference about what happened even though you are still going to have unanswered questions. If you're the kind of person who has can't make a decision on a jury with unanswered questions. we're not going to empanel. We're going to leave you off the jury because we know we're not going to be able to answer every question. We'll build answer enough though to leave you with a smaller step of trust that. For your inference. What we do in christianity is the same way. Jesus did the same thing he said. You know if you don't believe in the of what. I was told you at least believe on the evidence of these miracles just as the gospel john. He provides evidence at every turn. He he heals then he heralds. Why is it in that order. Why do i. Why don't need to do this. I to demonstrate the authority. I have the words. I'm about to say. I've already laid the foundation for them. Evidentially when when john the baptist is starting to struggle right. He sends his disciples. Jesus jesus could easily tell those disciples of john the baptist. Go back and tell john he should know better. He's my cousin for crying out loud he left in the womb and our parents met you know he baptize me. Saw the descending of really. John should know what he does is he reminds the disciples of john the baptist of the miracles. He has worked in front of the go back and tell john go back and remind john. That's evidence that's called indirect evidence right the evidence of miracles. Jesus constantly does this. Even though we know that that evidence. I know this too. I don't expect to argue somebody under the kingdom. What i wanna do is people to kind of remove the barriers it constructed for themselves so that when they hear the gospel it's available to them and so i think the kind of work we do is just kind of till the soil comparing the ground for and i know that for me personally. You done this all day long. It would have been useless. But at some point god i acted to change the nature of my heart so i would pay attention to the case at all. I didn't do that. Nobody i was prayed into that position by people who love me enough to pray for me. And god's spirit moved in me and it was all got top down but at the same time when we take time to make a case. We're kind of like basically. It's a big preaching the gospel. I needed to hear the case. That way i needed to hear that evidential case before i would listen to the gospel and so as that was how that's how i became a christian. I became a christian by examining the gospels as if they were eyewitness accounts to see if there were reliable and that helped me to tear down the walls that i had constructed. So that when i read what the new testament said about jim wallace about my need for a savior. I was able to actually respond. Well those are just some of the insights that you'll find reading this brand new book from j warner wallace former cold case. Detective and the title of the book is person of interest subtitle. Why jesus still matters in a world that rejects the bible. This is the kind of insight that helps strengthen our own faith and it offers such practical help and sharing our faith with others on their level.

"New book called person of interest by author j warner wallace. Jim wallace is a retired cold case. Detective and he takes a look at the uniqueness of christ the way an investigator would look at one of his cases. A case where there's no crime scene it's fascinating and it's a great tool for helping us. Tell others about christ master greg. You mentioned how some believers are reluctant to share their faith but the very same time they'll freely offer recommendations recommend a movie or a restaurant or an auto mechanic so why not recommend that people consider the christian faith exactly. How would a resource like this book person of interest help and making that kind of recommendation. Well let me tell you. How would have helped an eighteen year. Old greg laurie. I was a newly minted christian. I heard the pastors say go. Share the gospel. So i went out and i started telling people about jesus in fact i ran into one of my old friends that grew up with and i was telling him about the lord of christ had done for me and suddenly some guy steps into the conversation. I didn't invite him to step in but he came in barraged with about four to five questions. I don't even remember what they were. But all i remember is i didn't have the answers. I was humiliated. I was embarrassed My friend i was talking to didn't wanna talk to me anymore. And i went home and i realized i've got a study and prepare myself to answer. Questions that nonbelievers ask. We need to be equipped you know. The bible says we should be able to give to every man in answer concerning the hope those ns but with meekness inferior..

There's a there's some rethink apologetic conscious going on around the country, and we'll put those and show today. But there's a lot of people that'll be speaking at that. But the thing that really hit me is, you know, a love these, you know, Lee Strobel stories where you, hey, I'm a journalist and and set out to us the things that God called me to actually investigate and see if I could. Come up with a with a case that you know, is Christianity tell the truth these events really happening the resurrection.
