About This Episode

In this episode, Jay and Isaac chat with Mary Jo Sharp. Mary Jo is the founder of Confident Christianity, an apologetics ministry helping people wrestle with some of the most pressing theological questions of our day. She is also assistant professor of apologetics at Houston Baptist University, as well as a prominent blogger, writer, and speaker. On this episode, we discuss the common cultural notion that the Jesus story is actually based on several pagan myths which some claim carry the same exact key components of the story - virgin births, twelve disciples, death and resurrection, etc. This idea was recently made popular by the Zeitgeist film. Mary Jo skillfully deconstructs these ideas and shows how the Jesus story is unique and historically valid.
