About the Book

Jesus’ very presence as the New Testament age unfolded (1st century A.D.), engendered opposition, created confl ict, while ushering in grace. His ideas were considered “radical.” Why is this so? The NIV Archeological Study Bible (2005), NIV Student Bible, et al. and corroborating Extra-Biblical evidence provide a context for the Word view about Jesus in Biblical history, and supports aspects of the social and physical sciences in terms of cultural, socio-economic, political, historical, archeological, and philosophical (apologetics) evidence. As the pages of this book unfold, there is an internal consistency with social science and The Bible. However, where such consistency appeared to diverge, this author attempts to “fi lter” out the “noise” by applying critical thinking criteria to a Worldview that may not be consistent with the Word view.” The goal of this book therefore is to provide some exposition (Greek apologia) of the Word and see how the World “fi ts.” Born again Christians can be credible scientists and not compromise God’s Word.
