Principles of the Law of Evidence and Rationality Applied in the Johannine Christology An Argument for the Legal Evidential Apologetics.
Those who give primacy to evidence in the apologetic task have long maintained that (1) this is exactly the biblical writers’ approach – maintaining, as they do, that they saw and heard” the things of which they speak – and (2) such reasoning is fundamental to society in general, as exemplified in every civilised legal system. Henry Hock Guan Teh concretises these vital points by way of the Gospel of John, where the Apostle consistently marshals eyewitness evidence to show that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you might have life through His name” (John 20 31). No finer or more scholarly support for a biblically grounded, factual, juridically sophisticated defence of Christian truth is available. Professional and lay evangelists – and anyone endeavouring to preach the gospel to every creature” – simply must obtain and benefit from this book. And sceptical lawyers, needless to say, owe it to themselves to wrestle with the author‘s case for the only historical religion that holds up in court. John Warwick Montgomery, Ph.D., D.Théol., LL.D., Professor Emeritus of Law and Humanities, University of Bedfordshire, England Distinguished Research Professor of Philosophy, Concordia University Wisconsin, USA Director, International Academy of Apologetics, Evangelism and Human Rights, Strasbourg, France Dr. Teh’s book is in the same genre as those by Simon Greenleaf professor Dr. John Warwick Montgomery, Craig Parton. Esq., and Prof. Dr. Ross Clifford. As can be seen by the title, Dr. Teh concentrates on the Gospel of John – chapter-by-chapter. His powerful argument can even be comprehended by those of us not legally trained. Recommended. Dr. Rod Rosenbladt, Professor of Theology. Concordia University Irvine. 1517legacy.com This book will greatly help people understand the legal, historical and rational case for Christianity. Dr Henry Teh uniquely focuses on John’s gospel and establishes the Case for Jesus Resurrection through the best” evidence principle. This emphases on John’s gospel establishes that it is a key text for Christian apologetics. The book is a compelling read for those who take 1 Peter 3 15 seriously. And for those who believe Jesus is a fairy-tale, it will cause them to reconsider the fact of his Resurrection. It is well written and a must addition to one’s apologetic armoury.
