Segments 1 & 2: The first part of this program reviews, and considers further, what we covered in the previous episode, namely, how did Jesus view the Scripture? And how, during His earthly ministry, did He come to the written word of God, the Jewish Scripture, what we today call the Old Testament?

Segment 3: In the final segment of the program I deal with the first of the attacks upon the Scripture that are unique to our time, namely, the “Young Earth Theory.” This view that the Bible teaches us that the earth and the universe are only about 6,000 years old is promoted by sincere, well-meaning Christians, but nonetheless, it has been used to discredit the Bible in the eyes of countless people over the last century. In fact, the Bible does not tell us the age of the earth or the universe, because there is a gap between Gensis 1:1 and 1:2. This is called the “Gap Theory,” and it is the only theory of Creation that is consistent with the rest of the Bible.
