Lutheran Hour Ministries will have two nationwide airings of its full-length television program, “The Bible on Trial: Beyond a Reasonable Doubt.”
On Saturday, June 18, the program will air at 6 p.m. Eastern time on the Inspiration Network (INSP, Channel 259 on Dish Network and Channel 364 on DirecTV; the Inspiration Network is also available on 2,800 other local cable systems).
The program will air again on Monday, July 18, at 9 p.m. Eastern time, through the National Religious Broadcasters Network (Channel 378 on DirecTV and Channel 126 on Sky Angel, as well as online at www.nrbnetwork.tv). Check local listings for other times.
Hosted by Attorney Craig Parton, author of “The Defense Never Rests: A Lawyer’s Quest for the Gospel,” the program asks a key question of some of the world’s foremost authorities in biblical scholarship and ancient history: “Are the Bible and its claims trustworthy?”
Responding to the question is a panel of experts that includes Dr. Paul L. Maier, longtime history professor at Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, Mich., and LCMS third vice-president; Dr. Randall Price of Liberty University, Lynchburg, Va.; Dr. Jeff Kloha, associate professor at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis; and Joel Lampe of The Bible Museum, Goodyear, Ariz.
After weighing the evidence from contemporary non-Christian writers and archaeological, bibliographic and eyewitness sources, the panel affirms the reliability of the biblical record. The program concludes with a call to the viewer: “What is your verdict?”
“The Bible on Trial” began airing in May on AMG TV network stations in Los Angeles, Phoenix, Houston, Nashville, Detroit, Cincinnati, New York, Orlando, Dallas, Seattle and many other cities. More airings are scheduled in the coming months. For broadcast dates and times, visit the Broadcast Guide at www.thebibletrial.com.
