Miracles are essential to the historic Christian faith. If Jesus Christ was not God incarnate, and if Jesus did not rise bodily from the grave, then the Christian faith as we know it from history and the Scriptures would not—could not—be true (see Rm 10:9–10).
This question has stoked controversy among conservative Christians in recent times, but it has proved to be of little interest to theistic evolutionists (those who accept evolution as God’s mechanism in creation) and those rejecting Genesis as God’s inerrant Word. The debate has been primarily between young-and old-earth creationists.
Some time ago, I had the opportunity to speak to a man who had no belief whatsoever in the Scriptures as any sort of divine revelation from God. He was a writer who was articulate and well-educated. While he was well-read, he was completely ignorant of any evidences for the truthfulness of the Christian faith and the Scriptures which reveal it.
The Law of Moses or the Mosaic Law encompasses the first five books of the Bible (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers Deuteronomy), and at times are just referred to as the Law. However, in an extended sense, the whole of the Old Testament is known as the Mosaic Law. The Jews though consider the Law to be divided into three sections: (1) the Law of Moses, (3) the prophets and (3) the Psalms.
Does the Bible contain a revelation of the divine Mind to man? is a question that thrusts itself upon every investigator of its pages. Are the motives of Moses and the prophets, and of Christ and his apostles, as contained in the Old and New Testaments, really true, and is Christianity supernatural, and are its claims of God?
New Testament Bible scholars David Walls and Max Anders attempt to unravel this conundrum. The problem is, they are quite mistaken. We will look at their full argument, which sounds very biblically grounded, until the missing information is given.
