The Fate of the Apostles – Sean McDowell

May 19, 2020 | Podcast | 0 comments

A common argument for the truth of the resurrection is that the apostles all died as martyrs and there’s no reason they would have died for a lie. But how well does this argument hold up? What is the evidence that all the apostles died as martyrs? Is there any evidence?

A common argument for the truth of the resurrection is that the apostles all died as martyrs and there’s no reason they would have died for a lie. But how well does this argument hold up? What is the evidence that all the apostles died as martyrs? Is there any evidence?

Today on Educate For Life, Kevin talks with Sean McDowell. Sean has examined this topic in depth and even wrote a book called “The Fate of the Apostles”.

Sean McDowell offers a comprehensive, historical analysis of the fate of the twelve disciples of Jesus along with the apostles Paul and James. McDowell assesses the evidence for each apostle’s martyrdom as well as determining its significance to the reliability of their testimony. The willingness of the apostles to die for their faith is a popular argument in resurrection studies and McDowell offers insightful scholarly analysis of this argument to break new ground within the spheres of New Testament studies, Church History and apologetics.
