Hot Off the Presses! "Killing Christ: Contesting Trendy Critics Regarding Jesus

Killing Christ: Contesting Trendy Critics Regarding The Death and Resurrection of Jesus 


An extraordinary conspiracy of injustice, cruelty, as well as religious and political interests sentenced an innocent man to the cruelest method of execution ever developed. Yet, the target was no mere victim, He was the Redeemer. Jesus as God and man came to die in the place of humanity. The
killing jesus bill fox news

Bible, Talmud, Mishnah, and Roman historians reveal that the Son of God was illegally arrested, tried, and executed. How did such a thing come to be? Who were the spectators, the authorities, frauds, and scoundrels? Why was Christ’s arrest illegal under Hebrew law? What was it like at Gethsemane during the arrest, or in the chambers of the chief priest as the interrogations of Christ took place? What can an apologetics approach, using Hebraic sources, tell us about the meaning of the last words Jesus uttered on the cross? With the massive amount of evidence for the resurrection of Christ, why can we go beyond probability to full certainty that Christ is risen? This captivating work will answer those questions in a way that will keep the pages turning.

In Killing Jesus Christ, Robinson invites you to experience the most stunning injustice in the history of civil law, conjoined to the supreme triumph of the power of God, and the redemption provided by the death of Christ. The author provides a chronological examination that includes a detailed look at everything from rabbinical law to Roman justice to Christ's courtroom declarations of His divinity. This new volume furnishes a readable examination and analysis of the indictments, preliminary proceedings, trials, and execution of Jesus—great for apologetics and the defense of the faith.

With all the skeptical assaults on the meaning of the death, life, and resurrection of Christ, this innovative volume is a must for every Christian, minister, and apologist—it will be a book that you will give away many times to friends. This is so because it is serious (it contains informed analysis of relevant biblical truths), rational (it is well-argued), potent (it holds the reader's attention through gripping illustrations), and spiritual (it will set you ablaze for God).

The death of Jesus stands at the very center of Christianity. Still, many are confused about the reasons for the killing of Jesus, for many deviant views are saturating the media.

Killing Jesus Christ reveals the truth about:

  • The Arrest of Jesus Christ

  • The Various Trials of Christ: An Apologetic Approach

  • The Errors of the Trendy Critics (Bill O’Reilly, Reza Aslan, Bart Ehrman, etc.)

  • The First Good Friday and Its Redemptive Provision

  • The Ancient Rabbinic, Roman, and Non-biblical Historical Accounts

  • The Proof of the Resurrection of Christ: The Facts within an Assured Rational Framework

  • Who Really Killed Jesus?

  • The Evidence of The Historicity of Christ’s Life, Death, and Resurrection

The publication of Killing Jesus Christ is indeed an event. What is intended here is an account of the arrest, trials, death, and resurrection of Christ which does justice to the full sweep of biblical testimony and the ancient historical sources (the Talmud, Mishnah, Targums, Dead Sea Scrolls, and Roman archives). What is accomplished is something on the order of a vigorous defense of Christian truth—an appropriation of the data, evidence, and facts within a synthesis of the foundational necessity of Christian theism.

Killing Jesus Christ is a valuable resource for students of the gospels, and a highly stimulating volume for all interested in Christian truth. The section on the harmony of the Gospel accounts, regarding the trials and crucifixion, alone makes this a valuable tool for apologetics. It will be hard to come away from this book without a feeling of having been enriched and challenged. This is a book that will be formative for average Christians and scholars as well as students and pastors—the author is clear, accessible and passionate.

A Christian Argument for Purpose and Significance

Under Non-theism: There is No Lasting Purpose, No Ultimate Meaning, and No Hope


Without God, all the ideas, objectives, and achievements of mankind will collapse, fade, and vanish as they ultimately dissolve into the desolation of inoperative energy. All human experience and existence will be as though it had never been. Devoid of God, the cosmos will end in futility and extinction as it subsides into the nethermost mode of heat energy. The Second Law of Thermodynamics insures that without God, in the end, one is left with no lasting purpose, no ultimate meaning, and no hope. Moreover, reject the Christian worldview and one lacks a ground for purpose as well as the analysis and evaluation of purpose. To account for the notion of purpose, all men depend on the Christian worldview as it supplies the necessary functioning features of the analysis of purpose. Studying purpose and meaning, gathering knowledge regarding such matters, and offering claims concerning such—these actions require the use of universal operating features that the brute material cosmos cannot ontologically underwrite. Purpose is not intelligible apart from the biblical God.

Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31).

Man's chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever (Westminster Standards).1

Everything has been figured out, except how to live (Jean-Paul Sartre).

Christian Purpose and SignificanceIn the West it used to be considered the realm of the churches to solve the problems regarding the point of existence, but these days the question “What is the meaning of life?” is included in many exams for sociology, psychology, and philosophy degrees. However, the issue also arises in a very real form in contemporary ethics, particularly with the cases of the terminally ill, abortion, and the treatment of the elderly. It seems ironic that for too many people, the only time the question of the meaning of life is pondered deeply is when it is almost over. 

Boundaries and Meaninglessness

A life without boundaries is a meaningless existence (Josh McDowell).

So what’s the point of it all anyway? There are numerous alternatives, some very hedonistic, some slightly epicurean, and some idealistic, some morally principled, and some very virtuous.  The later type may live a life that is about truth, beauty, and honor—learning and growing in Christian virtue.2 Many people seek fulfillment of the self-gratifying kind—pursuits along the lines of: to seek personal comfort and pleasure, to get wealthy, or to gain power or fame. But if life is merely about the “pursuit of happiness”—what if that doesn’t satisfy? What if my happiness pursuit conflicts with another person’s happiness? Or what If I’m not very good at pursuing happiness? Many people in modern societies are not good at pursuing happiness; just look at the alcoholism, illegal drug use, and violence in contemporary societies.

An Incoherent Noble Truth

Does Buddhism have a coherent and satisfying solution? For Buddhists in selected sects, the answer to questions about the purpose of life, the universe and everything, is that the point of life is to put off desire. All men suffer because we lack that which we want—we receive the trouble, which we do not desire. This desire to possess things is the cause of our suffering (dukkha). This means that the soul is out of harmony and seeks after the wrong things, and thus perpetuates the suffering. An important part of enlightenment is the understanding that suffering is just an illusion, like desire, and one escapes this desire through following the Dharma (the law of life, one’s duty within cultural norms or the basic philosophical principals of one’s life in the world). 

In contrast, Van Til observed that “when apples are shaken off a tree, one can ask whether there must not have been some sort of something that is higher than the apples in order to account for the fruit. Similarly, not looking for the meaning of man in the light of the revelation that comes from Christ revealed in the Bible is even more absurd. He who does not look for the meaning of humanity in the light of the revelation that comes from God revealed in Scripture is like one who shakes off all the apples of the apple tree, grubs out the tree, and then asks whether there must not have been some sort of something that is higher than the apples in order to account for them. This ‘some sort of something’ or at most some sort of tree may, possibly or probably, tell us that it is an apple tree.”3                                                     

The Buddha taught that one should strive to remove desire, and affirm that everything that seems real—things we seek—are all just illusions.

   If all desire is error and increases suffering
  Then the desire to rid myself of desire is an error and actually increases suffering
   I should not desire to completely stifle desire

A goal to extinguish desire, as asserted above, is self-impaling. On this crucial issue—the diagnosis of the human problem—Christianity and Buddhism are infinitely different. Buddha teaches that our desires need to be subdued and annihilated, but Jesus presses men to cultivate passionate desires to please God and follow after love. Buddha attempts to rid men of suffering by denying one’s aspirations and in promulgating the notion that desires are part of the vast illusion of life. This reveals that the real need that Buddhists have is for the forgiveness of sins and acceptance by God. Only Jesus can provide this solution. The Buddhist is taught to resolve to follow Dharma with precision so one can find Nirvana. By contrast, the Christian, by grace, obtains salvation as a gift from God through the person and work of Christ. 

The concept of “God” invented as the antithetical concept in life–everything harmful, noxious, slanderous, the whole mortal enmity against life brought into terrible unity! The concept the life beyond … invented to deprive of value the only world which exists (Nietzsche).4

Some cultists advance the idea that life is about knocking on enough doors to sell magazines or to participate in enough temple occultic rituals to please God. Selected Hindus suggest that one needs to stay pure in order to escape the Karmic cycle. The Prussian born Friedrich Nietzsche advanced the idea that life was about attaining power. Nietzsche wrote of the will of power, the Superman, and magnificent destinies. Yet Nietzsche was a physically and emotionally weak man: headaches, unattractive, bad eyesight—a tragic figure. He ironically asserted: “A casual stroll through the lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything.”5 A few years later he fell into insanity and repeatedly declared that he was Jesus Christ.6 Nietzsche stated that the goal of humanity is to rise atop nature’s power-seeking—untrammeled by Christian notions of justice and compassion. There is no meaning to life except that which individuals create for themselves. The only way out of this meaninglessness is through the exercise of power. Whereas Christianity teaches that men ought to glorify God, aim to do good, love your neighbor, Nietzsche argues that this is slave morality and is born out of weakness.

God the Foundation for Purpose

F--k damnation, man! F--k redemption! We are God's unwanted children? So be it! (Fight Club).7
I am absolutely convinced that the gas chambers ... were ultimately prepared not in some ministry or other in Berlin, but rather at the desks and lecture halls of nihilistic scientists and philosophers (Viktor Frankl; italics mine).
O LORD, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off. You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. For there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O LORD, You know it altogether. You have hedged me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful … You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; when I awake, I am still with You (Psalms 139:1-18).

The Christian worldview supplies hope. The proper application of science is a wonderful tool to advance aspects of human life. Nevertheless, the “religion” of science cannot provide enduring hope or purpose. Mathematics and scientific observation have demonstrated that the Second Law of Thermodynamics is a fundamental truth (all things are running down). And without God, this law of physics leaves man without a future and a hope. This principle reveals that the universe is running down like a clock. One day in the distant future the whole universe will die in the whimper of an eternal heat-death. The sun, the starry hosts, and all the galaxies will be extinguished in a humming red flash. The pop-atheist Rosenberg observes that “the second law of thermodynamics tells us that the universe is headed for complete disorder—no purpose or goal can be secured permanently under such circumstances (Alex Rosenberg: The Atheist’s Guide to Reality).

An Argument for Purpose

[1] Without an everlasting existence, men have no enduring purpose.
[2] God supplies everlasting existence for men.
[3] There is an enduring purpose.
[4] Therefore God exists.
One may extend this argument to an antithesis:
[5] Non-theism cannot supply an everlasting existence.
[6] Under non-theism men have no enduring purpose.
[7] Without enduring purpose men have no ultimate meaning.
[8] Non-theism offers no ultimate meaning
[9] There is ultimate meaning.
[10] Therefore non-theism is false.

This argument places most its weight on [3]. It does not stand as an assured argument. If the non-theist denies that there is an enduring purpose, he can evade the weight of its vigor. But the denial is very telling. Under non-theism there is no enduring purpose. 

A Transcendental Proposal for Purpose

To fashion the truth of purpose in an assured argument—a transcendental form is much preferred since a transcendental inference is not governed by the truth value of its antecedent premise, regardless of whether this premise affirms purpose or not. This is the case since a transcendental supposition constitutes the very ground for the proof of that premise.

Deny the Christian worldview and one lacks a foundation for purpose as well as the investigation and evaluation of purpose, meaning, and hope. To account for the notion of purpose, all men depend on the Christian worldview since it furnishes the obligatory functioning features required for the analysis of purpose. Investigating purpose and meaning, gathering knowledge regarding such matters, and offering assertions concerning such—these actions require the use (and presupposition) of universal operating features that the mere cosmos cannot ontologically fund. Purpose, not merely eternal purpose, is not intelligible apart from the biblical God.

The Distressing Reality of Purposelessness

Without God, all the schemes, dreams, monuments, and attainments of mankind will be like a “cosmic sand sculpture” which will be toppled, subdued, despoiled, dissolved, and swept off into the sea of nothingness (unusable energy). All reality and existence will be as though it had never been and the whole universe will wear the final mark of purposelessness and oblivion, as it ebbs into the lowest vocation of soft heat energy. The Second Law of Thermodynamics demonstrates that without God, in the end, one is left with no lasting purpose, no ultimate meaning, and no hope.

God announces to His people that He is with them everywhere, at all times. God’s will is to be our delight and purpose. The universe and our individual lives are part of the culmination of a prefigured design.

Sagacious But Illegitimate

Socrates believed that the best life, in part, is realized when the soul ponders ultimate beauty in its pure form and when it pursues knowledge of ultimate forms. This and many other theories (by Socrates as well as other philosophers) have no ultimate footing to ground their claims. They are just empty claims by individual men—though many times from very brilliant men—nevertheless, just men. Those, who believe that human existence and our universe are just “accidental afterthoughts,” leave souls in despair, immersed in purposelessness. When one reads Bertrand Russell summing up life as “unyielding despair,” one starts to ache for meaning and purpose. To find meaning in life, one has to look to the true and living God. He is the God of the living and He gives life purpose and meaning.

The inward area is the first place of loss of true Christian life, of true spirituality, and the outward sinful act is the result (Francis Schaeffer).8

The Bible instructs people to do “all things for the glory of God.” Holy writ notifies the world that in our life, we can have the supreme joy of knowing the Father in a loving, covenant relationship. One cannot have real meaning in this life without the Lord Jesus Christ. Emptiness, loneliness, purposelessness, and despair are the companions of those who do not seek God in Christ. A covenant life with God Almighty brings daily enrichment, enchantment, and a wonder-filled life. Doing all things for the glory of God and enjoying Him brings a splendor-filled zest to the daily delights of nature, employment, motherhood, children, friends, God’s Word, prayer, and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

God is The God of Hope

He who has a why to live can bear almost any how (Friedrich Nietzsche).9

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He has made us accepted in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins... having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself (Ephesians 1:3-9).


Hungering for the world’s disjointed abstract knowledge will only lead to struggle and despair. Real purpose and meaning are pursued, attained, and sustained by a hot-blooded, passionate pursuit of Jesus. The non-Christian worldview leads to Heidegger’s ultimate, yet empty, answer to the problem of the meaninglessness of life “is to stand on deck and salute” as the ocean liner sinks. He tells us to do this because it is more visually appealing than doing nothing. That is real despair. That is depressing. Thank God it is false. Following Jesus lifts one up into a wonderful, enthralling life in the Spirit.

Overlooking or rejecting God’s purpose in Jesus Christ is:

1.       Unrewarding.  
2.       It leads to despair and desolation.  
3.       It is arrogant.
4.       Ends in doom.

And may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, that you may overflow with hope through  the power of  the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13).

Prayer, Sovereignty, and Salvation

God is in Control: Prayer and Salvation

by Mike Robinson
Prayer is the slender nerve that moves the muscle of omnipotence (Charles H. Spurgeon.
Faith, and hope, and patience and all the strong, beautiful, vital forces of piety are withered and dead in a prayerless life. The life of the individual believer, his personal salvation, and personal Christian graces have their being, bloom, and fruitage in prayer. (E.M. Bounds).
prayer God Sovereignty Salvation
Prayer has never been a mere option, it is a joyful duty. Prayer is a must for this nation and all its citizens. My prayer is that God will bring many multitudes to know Jesus Christ and serve Him.

Recall the story of Nebuchadnezzer. He had a dream, but he forgot it, so he commanded his impotent sorcerers and astrologers to ascertain what the content of his dream was: They couldn’t do it. Daniel prayed and prayed and God revealed the king’s dream and interpretation to him. Notice the manner in which Daniel praises God: “Daniel answered and said: ‘Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His’” (Daniel 2:20).

  Who removes kings? God.
  Who raises kings? God.
Scripture teaches that God Almighty controls a king’s heart like water.
   God is in control.

The doctrine of God’s Providence was of utmost importance in the birth of the United States of America. All historical events are under God’s providential hand as He acts through human agencies. Laws alone will not change our society. Society will change when hearts change first. By God’s grace only Jesus Christ and His gospel can change people.

On July 4th 1776, The Declaration of Independence proclaimed: “We hold these truths... that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights... Appealing to the supreme judge of the world... and for the support of this declaration, with reliance on the protection of divine providence.”

No matter how much effort makes the life of a man a pleasanter and richer thing, there lives in mankind a sense that all such progress and civilization does not satisfy for the deepest human needs nor rescue them from their worst distress (Herman Bavinck).
Jesus came to Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel” (Mark 1:14-15). Thus, the largest institution on the planet is the church. The kingdom that contains the most citizens is the church. The association with most men is the church of Jesus Christ. Not any one denomination, but the collective body that professes Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior in America. A recent Gallup Poll found the percentage of people confessing to be Born-again Christians is 46 percent. That is way up from 33 percent from the early 1990's. That is about 135 million people proclaiming salvation in Jesus Christ as Savior. 

Justification: Declared Righteous

Clouds and darkness surround Him: righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne (Psalms 97:2).

Mercy triumphs over judgment (James 2:13).

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. … For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him (Romans 5:1-9).

Justification is a doctrinal term. The doctrine is laid out in the books of Romans and 1 Corinthians, among others (Genesis 15; Psalm 32; Galatians; Titus). Justification, as a doctrine, is unique to Christianity. The doctrine of justification holds that the believer is declared righteous, his sins are removed, and Christ’s righteousness is imputed unto him by faith in and the grace of Christ alone. No other religious system has a means by which to erase our record of iniquity and grant us a righteous record, so that we can enter a perfect Heaven. Justification is a legal, forensic term that implies prior condemnation and results in pardon.

The holy God demands a formal, forensic righteousness, not because He is capriciously harsh but because He is completely righteous. God is not arbitrary; He is holy and perfect. Heaven is pristinely perfect and for one to enter within must have all their sins removed and have a perfect righteousness. One must be righteous to live with God in Heaven. Every man has broken God’s holy law; the solution for man’s sin and depravity is a formal, legal justification through Christ by grace through faith.

But to him who does not work, but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness (Romans 4:5).

Most Christians understand that because Christ died on the Cross, their sins are forgiven and rinsed away; this is what is called the negative aspect of justification. Something is subtracted, namely our sins. The positive aspect of justification is usually overlooked by the average modern Christian. The positive element of justification states that God imputes into the believer’s account the righteousness of Christ. Jesus not only died for us; He lived for us. His perfect, holy, and righteous life was given to those who trust in Him. Christians know that Jesus atoned for their sins and disobedience on the Cross, but His work was not merely negative and passive.

During His life of thirty-three years, Jesus lived in perfect accord with God’s law, fulfilling all righteousness on our behalf. Saved believers stand perfectly righteous before the Holy God. They are not just guiltless and sinless, but they are actually declared righteous on account of Christ. All that Jesus did on the earth is imputed into the believer’s account. We are justified before God through the active and passive obedience of Jesus. We are saved by His life and His death; that is good news. Only Christianity can bestow justification. All the world’s additional religions are based upon the religionist’s good deeds and personal merit. The problem is that Heaven is perfect, God is holy, and nothing unholy and unrighteous will enter God’s Heaven. Biblical justification is the only solution to man’s sin and Adam’s disobedience.

The Eternal Blessing of Imputation

And he believed in the LORD; and He accounted it to him for righteousness (Genesis 15:6).

Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1).

For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of My people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace (Jeremiah 8:11).

By God’s grace through faith justification forensically renders the believer righteous and gives him peace with Heaven. Without justification, the unbeliever has no peace with God. We must never assert that there is peace when there is no peace between the ungodly and God. Without justification by grace alone, there can be no real peace. “Imputation” is the Biblical term for the positive element of justification. Through God’s grace by faith, the believer is declared righteous.

Christ preached: “Be perfect, even as your Heavenly Father is perfect” (Matthew 5:48). The law demands perfect obedience—a perfection equal to the Father’s perfection. Nobody except Christ has accomplished this, so we need a perfect righteousness that is not our own. We need to be justified by the works and righteousness of another. Justification is a forensic term which speaks of the Christian’s legal position before God. The believer is declared righteous despite his unrighteous deeds. The justified are given an alien righteousness, a righteousness that is not their own but is imputed unto them by faith. Not having a righteousness of our own ensures that God gets all the glory.

But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life. This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to affirm constantly, that those who have believed in God should be careful to maintain good works. These things are good and profitable to men (Titus 3:4-8, italics mine).

As Thomas Boston put it, “We cry down the law when it comes to our justification, but we set it up when it comes to our sanctification. The Law drives us to the Gospel that we are justified, then sends us to the Law again to show us our duty now that we are justified.” Hence, because God has saved us by His mercy, we now strive to maintain good works because we are grateful.

A Christian is not a man who never goes wrong, but a man who is enabled to repent (C.S. Lewis).

Give Away What You Have Received

He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him (Psalms 126:6).

In 1940 a butterfly collector was in Utah trying to enlarge his collection of bugs. At dusk he returned from his excursion and shared with his companion that he had heard a loud moaning and a cry for help. Someone was calling for assistance down the stream. His friend asked him whether he stopped and looked for the man who was in trouble. He said, “No, I had to get a particular butterfly.” The next morning the corpse of a gold prospector was discovered in what later was named Dead Man’s Gulch. Are we like the indolent butterfly collector? People are all around us, dying in their sins, and we are too busy or too dull to reach out to help. Is your life a spiritual Dead Man’s Gulch or is it a lifesaving station?

I want to care like George Whitefield cared when he pleaded, “Weep out, if possible, every argument, and compel them to cry, ‘Behold, how He loves us.’”
