Historical Christian Evidences was filmed live in the classroom at Sunset International Bible Institute in the Fall of 2003. It consists of twenty-two one hour lessons (with three exceptions). This series focuses on the considerable evidence proving the existence of Jesus, the factual accuracy of the New Testament writings, and the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. At each step the student is led to see the logical conclusions to be drawn from such evidence. This is one of the most encouraging and faith-building studies imagineable. Ed Wharton has been an instructor at Sunset for more than 40 years, and is held in the highest esteem as an evangelist, Bible teacher and author.
