What We Don't Know About Resurrection as a Major Theme of the Scriptures is an ONGROUND ONLY mini course held at the Messianic Studies Institute (4950 Morse Road, Columbus, Ohio 43230) from 7:00–9:30pm TWO WEDNESDAYS: Nov 7 & 14.
Did you know that "resurrection from the dead" has a Jewish origin? Yeshua (Jesus) stated that the Torah, the Prophets, and the Psalms (Writings) bear witness to His resurrection. In this course, we will explore resurrection as a MAJOR THEME of the Scriptures and beyond: from the Tanakh (Torah, Prophets, & Writings), to Second Temple Extra-Biblical Jewish Literature, to the New Covenant Scriptures. The course concludes with a unit on answering objections to the resurrection of Yeshua, including the relationship between history and faith, and why the resurrection of Yeshua is the best explanation for the birth of the Messianic movement.
Eric's areas of interest are philosophy of religion, epistemology, the resurrection of Yeshua (Jesus), Jewish messianism, the relationship between Israel & the Church, apologetic systems, historical method, Biblical hermeneutics, the genre of the Gospels, and the relationship between science and theology. He leads an apologetics ministry at both the Ohio State University and Columbus State Community College. He has published numerous articles for Messianic Literature Outreach and is an Adjunct Instructor at Xenos Christian Fellowship.
