Good episode? Give it some love!
What about the apologetics argument that the resurrection of Jesus could not have been fabricated because of the fact that gospel writers claim that women were witnesses to the event. As women were not thought to be competent witnesses, why would the gospel author state that women saw the resurrected Jesus unless it were the truth?

Is it true that the Roman empire generally had a policy of religious tolerance, provided that the religion in question makes a reasonable claim at being an ancient tradition?

In Acts 17:16-34, Paul is dragged in front of the Areopagus, because some people thought he was a "babbler", while others said he was "a setter forth of strange gods." But the Areopagus lost the power to prosecute religious matters in 462 BC. Is this an anachronism?

Wendy Doniger mentioned in one of her books the possibility that Jesus was raised by wild animals. What are your thoughts?

Do you think it's possible that the rich young ruler was the "beloved disciple" in John's Gospel?

What do you think of the family tomb of Jesus Christ?

Does the Bible contain examples of utilitarian entreaty to sacred powers for no other reason but one’s own ends?

I remember hearing of a theory of a hidden messiah where the messiah would come (and leave) without anyone knowing until being revealed some time later. Was this belief current before the Jesus era?
