Choose 2 of the following questions to answer and bring them with you to your next class session. 

  • For you what is the strongest evidence that Jesus is the Son of God?

  • Fr. Barron says either Jesus was "the Son of God" or " a dangerous fanatic to be avoided". If someone said to you "I think Jesus was just a fanatic and not the Son of God" How would you debate the issue with them?
