In this episode, Abdu sits down with his friend and nationally recognized cold case homicide detective J. Warner Wallace to talk about the nature of evidence, how cases are built using evidence, and attitudes that investigators have when trying to determine “what happened.” Along the way, they apply the discussion to our individual searches for the truth about Jesus.
There are a lot of ways to discuss this dynamic podcast. I think one of the main takeaways I am impressed with is that while our personal testimony is valuable and worthy of discussion, our testimony about Jesus Himself is what is truly necessary when witnessing. James Wallace makes the point that many people have testimonies of changed lives that have nothing to do with Truth of Christ.
So it’s valuable to discuss and asses the message that led to the change.
I think to take it a little further, if you encounter people who have experienced changed lives, it would be very interesting to dialog about that change.
What was the message that changed their life?
Why do they think the change was good?
What is the standard that defines good change?
Does the change have temporary, lifetime or possibly eternal impact?
