John Ankerberg Show Hosts Top New Testament Scholars to Discuss Bill O’Reilly’s Bestseller, Killing Jesus

Killing Jesus bookcoverIn response to Killing Jesus, the latest best-selling book by Bill O’Reilly, anchor of the No. 1 Fox News program The O’Reilly Factor, The John Ankerberg Show has produced a special two-part, six-program series that addresses what Mr. O’Reilly and his co-author, Martin Duggard, have published about the life, claims, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus.

"The criticism I think is going to come in the weeks ahead from other critical scholars. And we want to, in a sense, strengthen O'Reilly's case here," says Dr. John Ankerberg, host of America’s most-watched Christian worldview television program.

Dr. Ankerberg’s guests include Dr. Darrell Bock, Senior Research Professor of New Testament at Dallas Theological Seminary, and Dr. Gary Habermas, Distinguished Research Professor of Philosophy and Theology at Liberty University. Both scholars are cited as sources used in O’Reilly’s new book, which was released September 24 with a first print run of 1.2 million copies. Together, they offer expert analysis and insight regarding the evidence for Jesus used in O’Reilly’s book.

So far, The John Ankerberg Show has released the first two episodes in the two-part, six-program series, which are available now at JAshow.org.

The entire series, in Blu-ray and DVD, is available for pre-order through the organization’s website or by contacting 1-800- 805-3030.
