David Limbaugh Discusses Latest Book “Jesus on Trial” on Hannity (Video)
Author, lawyer and columnist David Limbaugh was on Hannity tonight to promote his latest book, Jesus on Trial: A Lawyer Affirms the Truth of the Gospel.
David told Sean Hannity:
“I embarked on a personal study that took me years and years to examine the true claims of Christianity and the evidence that has been induced, the field of Christian apologetics that seeks to defend the faith, and then theology itself. I studied those and I concluded that Christianity is true. It’s claims are true, that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Light. And, it’s important, I think, that we understand that.”
David sat down with Kathryn Lopez at National Review to discuss his new book.
A former skeptic, Limbaugh shares some of the evidence that helped to convince him to embrace Christianity with Kathryn Jean Lopez, senior fellow at the National Review Institute and editor-at-large of National Review Online. “What an indescribable blessing to have daily access to the Divine communication of our Maker any time we want,” he says, both in gratitude and as an invitation. “Let the scoffers scoff as I used to, but let them also give it a whirl and see what shakes out.”
KATHRYN JEAN LOPEZ: Does Jesus really have to be on trial? Hasn’t He suffered enough?
DAVID LIMBAUGH: I, a mortal and sinful man, would never presume to put my Savior on trial for anything, but I did want to share with my readers my findings upon studying the evidence for Christianity’s truth claims and closely examining the arguments of critics on and off for some 20 years.
My first choice for the title was “Beyond a Reasonable Doubt.” I wanted to make the case that the evidence proves beyond a reasonable doubt — and actually well beyond that, in my opinion — that Christianity’s major truth claims are true, especially that Jesus is both fully divine and fully human, lived a sinless life and performed many signs and miracles on earth, was crucified, and was bodily resurrected.
This book doesn’t put Jesus on trial, but it does thoroughly and comprehensively examine the case that others have tried and continue to try to make against Him.
I don’t pretend to be an expert in the sense that trained and credentialed theologians and Christian apologists are, but I have pored over the evidence and arguments they’ve adduced over the years, and come to the conclusion, after beginning as a skeptic, that this it is not even a close call. Jesus Christ is the Son of God and He died for my sins — and yours. Jesus’ work on the cross is finished. He conquered sin and death so that we could live. I want to do my part to share that “Good News.”
