Open Forums are specifically designed for skeptics or those wrestling with the claims of Christianity. Each Open Forum included a brief concert by guest artists followed by a talk and open mic Q&A with Timothy Keller. This audio recording includes the talk only.

Sermon Summary

This talk addresses doubts about the Bible’s authenticity and the accuracy of the Gospels. It counters the arguments of the Jesus Seminar and offers proof of the Gospels’ trustworthiness. The evidence includes stories from people who saw the events, confirmations from other historical sources, and the Gospels’ ability to pass tests used to check if historical documents are reliable. The Gospels, which claim to be true stories written when eyewitnesses were still alive, are not just fables or myths. Believing in Jesus as God’s Son and accepting the Bible’s authority is essential.
