Lectures from Coffee & Theology

Every Tuesday at 6:30 PM the main room here at Credo House is filled with people who want to know more about Christianity.

Those who come likely have a variety of motivations. Maybe they want to strengthen their own faith through education. Maybe they’re going through a season of doubt and need encouragement. Maybe they disbelieve and are looking for more ammunition for their unbelief. Whatever the reason, everyone is welcome and questions are encouraged.

A couple weeks ago Michael Patton spoke about the historicity and importance of the death of the apostles. It just so happens (or not) that the article about this is our most viewed blog post of all time.

What might we learn from the death of apostles? Why would it matter if a group of people died for their beliefs? Don’t people do that for beliefs that Christians deny? You’ll just have to watch the video to find out.

Past recordings from Coffee & Theology are available in the members area.

      Hey Ted,

      Good stuff my friend. I just finished my dissertation on the fate of the apostles. In fact, Ashgate Press is publishing my book late next year or early 2016. Keep in touch and I’ll be sure you get a copy. I have recommended many people to your online article, as its one of the best. Here’s one initial article I released:

      http://magazine.biola.edu/article/13-fall/did-the-apostles-really-die-as-martyrs-for-their-f/. (“Did the Apostles Really Die as Martyrs for Their Faith?”)

      Keep up the good work!

      Best,

        Hi Sean, a little bird told me you were working on something like this 🙂

        Congratulations on completing your dissertation! I’d love to see a copy once it’s published.
