Saturday, November 8, 7:30 pm: Houston Baptist University and First Lutheran present a debate between Jewish Rabbi Tavia Singer and New Testament Scholar Craig T. Evans on the question, "Was Jesus the Promised Messiah?" The cost will be $10 and we will soon link to a site for registration. The debate will be held at Mabee Theatre on the campus of HBU.



This debate series has featured two debates to date. Our first debate was held at HBU in November, 2013. That debate was between John Mark Reynolds and Dan Barker and can be viewed in its entirity here. The question up for debate was, "Does God Exist?"

Our second debate was between Christian apologist Eric Hernandez and HCC Philosophy Professor Dan Flores on the question, "Is God Necessary?" You can view this debate here.

These debates are presented by the Houston Debate Coalition, a partnership of First Lutheran and Houston Baptist University. The work of the Coalition is to present a series of high-quality debates focused on the most important issues of our day, or indeed, any other.
