Michael Licona and Shane Puckett debate the resurrection of Jesus

This debate has got a lot of comments on Apologetics 315.


On January 11, 2012, Mike Licona debated agnostic Shane Puckett on the topic “Did Jesus Rise from the Dead?” Shane was ranked #32 in the world as a collegiate debater in 2000 and has trained 3 national debate champions. The debate was held at the First Baptist Church of West Monroe.

Dr. Licona takes the affirmation and speaks first. I have not seen the debate, but people seem to think that Michael Licona did well.

  1. I wrote a longer comment but I felt it was too negative to post :p

    Basically, Mike Licona won, Shane Puckett didn’t live up to his credentials, and I’m not a big fan of Mike Licona debates.

  2. I like MIchael, but I think he looks better and performs better because of the lightweights he is up against. Shane was all style and packaging over substance. He had obviously read some material on the Resurrection but his comments did not come from the core of his being.

    He belonged in the shallow end of the pool, not the deep end.
