Life of Jesus &

First half: Before Frank Alisio Juarez III (aka Frank Shamrock) was known as ‘’The Legend"—winning almost every mixed martial arts (MMA) title in existence—he endured a childhood marred with abuse that led to a troubled young adulthood. He joined George Knapp to discuss how this created a fighter who would go on to dominate the sport for the next two decades.

Second half: Beatles expert, Chuck Gunderson, discussed the 50th Anniversary of the ground breaking album Revolver and the group's three world tours from 1964 to 1966. Gunderson recalled the controversy surrounding John Lennon's "Bigger than Jesus" statement and how this affected their troubled 1966 world tour.

Life of Jesus & 'Miracle Moments'

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - December 24, 2009
Host: George Noory
Guests: Gary Habermas

In the first half of the show, Prof. Gary R. Habermas discussed the historical evidence for the life of Jesus Christ, based on the work of a cross-section of contemporary scholars. Christ was a Middle Easterner, perhaps darker skinned than people typically picture him, and most scholars agree that he was a miracle worker. There are around 30 accounts of his miracles in the Gospels that can serve as historical documentation. Further, he is the only founder of a major religion to have miracles associated with him within a generation of his death, he said.

Many scholars also believe that at least in some sense Jesus was raised from the dead, Habermas asserted. "It's generally conceded that the disciples had real experiences," in terms of their witnessing his appearance after his death, he added. Alternative accounts of Jesus' life that claim he was married and had children are not backed up by any early historical data, he noted.

In the latter portion of the show, callers participated in 'Miracle Moment' Open Lines. One caller, who identified himself as the 'Lone Caroler,' said just that evening he'd stopped kids from crossing the street when a car with its lights turned off suddenly came barreling past. "Santa" phoned in and bequeathed the title of "Gentleman" to George for his kindness. At the end of the program, Lionel Fanthorpe's rendition of Twas the Night Before Christmas was featured.
