    I think you are Eric Chabot. The funny thing is, your name is nohwere on this page.

    If you added your name, I could be sure it was you.

      Yep that’s me. I once had it as Eric Chabot. I need to change it back. How is the Jesus myther debates going? I don’t debate that anymore.

  2. Mike Gantt January 10, 2014 / 3:17 pm

    Nor do I.

    But I still proclaim Christ…and always will. Love the substantive perspectives you always bring on any facet of Him you tackle. Saying this, I am especially fond of how you emphasize His Jewish roots. More and more, I see that the Bible is a more Jewish book than our generation of Christians has ever recognized. That said, I’m not sure that modern-day Jews have all that much better a grip on what that means than modern-day Christians. We must keep digging into the Scriptures and praying to grasp it.

    In any case, keep fighting the good fight. You’re doing a lot of good.

    If anyone reading this is a student of apologetics, know that Eric Chabot and J. Warner Wallace are two of the best practitioners out there right now. They are worthy to copy.

      Very kind words. Thanks you so much. I have been in mission work to Jews for years and have dealt with a lot of their objections. So you are spot on with your observations. I seem to recall you got into it with some mythers like Doherty, etc on Marc G’s page. Have you seen the latest quotes on the Jesus myther issue? I never use wiki as a source. But this was very telling. They will always have a lot of challenges with their position. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AS WELL MIKE! http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Christ_myth_theory?vm=r&s=1
