MIDWEST SKEPTICS SOCIETY 

WHO WAS JESUS? AND WHERE DID WE GET THE NEW TESTAMENT? BY DON BELL & FRED HEEREN TONIGHT, SAT, SEPT 24, 7PM AT PERKINS. Atheist and Christian toe to toe. DON'T MISS IT!

TO RSVP, ADDRESS AND MORE INFO ABOUT THIS GROUP GO TO: http://www.meetup.com/skeptics-137/

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!
HERE ARE THE 3 QUESTIONS THEY’LL ADDRESS, EACH FROM THEIR OWN VIEWPOINT:
- When and by whom were the Gospels written? 
- When and by whom was the rest of the NT written? 
- Who was “the historical Jesus”?
 
Atheist Don Bell and Evangelical Christian Fred Heeren have been meeting on Saturday afternoons to discuss questions about the origins of the New Testament and the historicity of Jesus.  
Don Bell has post-graduate degrees on the subject from several universities; Science journalist Fred Heeren admits he has no advanced degrees but merely took Bible courses every semester through college, and that he has been studying the issues on his own since.  Fred says he wants to explain one Christian's reasons for taking the New Testament seriously. The two intend to bring evidence to support their different positions on the above issues, then open the time up for Q & A and discussion with the whole group.
