Interesting poll going on at MSN today. 33% of 227,000 believe the Bible to be literally true in everything. 34% believe some of the details may be inaccurate or exaggerated, but the fundamentals are true. Check it out here. The point I'd like to make is, a lot of folks claim to be experts in the Bible who don't even read it. Remember, when you are talking to someone about the bible and they make a sweeping claim like the bible isn't accurate, it's fable, etc., that's THEIR claim, make THEM back it up, you don't have to try to prove them wrong. Make them prove their assertion. Most people will turn the table on you and say something like, "oh, I guess you think it's all true"! "why don't you prove it to me?" Don't take the bait. They made a claim, you make them prove it. After they fumble around for a while, you'll get your chance to "educate" them. Just be ready, in season and out of season to give a reason for the hope that lies within you.
HOW DID JESUS DIE?
Also, a story here about a possible cause of death for Jesus on the Cross (Israeli researcher thinks He died of a blood clot).
