In Defense of Easter- from Answers in Genesis

this post contains affiliate links

Here is a new Easter resource from Answers in Genesis.



Without the Resurrection, there is no hope.

We would still be in our sins, and the Christian faith could not exist. Jesus would be a fraud since He frequently predicted His own resurrection, even designating it as His sign for an unbelieving world.

Skeptics and critics understand the magnitude of the Resurrection, and they have developed numerous theories in their desperate attempts to explain away the wealth of evidence. The early Christians focused uniquely on Christ’s conquering of death. Yet many in the church today only discuss this vital doctrine at Easter time, and some fail to mention it entirely when attempting to share the gospel with unbelievers.

In Defense of Easter is a biblical and timely apologetic resource that teaches readers:

  • How history and archaeology support the Resurrection
  • Why skeptical explanations come up short
  • How the Resurrection provides hope and comfort
  • Whether Easter is a pagan holiday

Equip yourself to answer today’s skeptical challenges and strengthen your confidence in the risen Savior. Discover why everything hinges on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

If you haven’t heard already, Ken Ham and Bill Nye will be debating live on February 4th at 7pm, LIVE from The Creation Museum!

Our whole family plans to watch!

From the Answers in Genesis site:

Is creation a viable model of origins in today’s modern, scientific era? Leading creation apologist and bestselling Christian author Ken Ham is joined at the Creation Museum by popular TV personality and evolution apologist Bill Nye.

Ham, a former science instructor who emigrated to the USA from Australia over 25 years ago, is joined by the popular children’s program personality Bill Nye “the Science Guy” for this first and only scheduled debate. Each man delivers what he believes is the best information currently available for his case. Each then has an opportunity for rebuttal and afterward answers questions submitted by the audience.

The upcoming February 4 debate has already generated significant attention from national media, and tickets to attend live were completely sold out within two minutes of release.

Don’t miss this “debate of the decade”! Watch at home, or organize to show the live stream to your small group, your youth group, or even your entire church. This event may be freely rebroadcast to groups so long as no admission or other fees are charged to any participants or attendees.

Bible Based Homeschooling at Christmas

this post contains affiliate links

*This is a repost from 2013

Now that we have taken a break from studying Genesis, we are taking all of December to study Jesus. We are learning about the prophecies fulfilled int he Bible and Jesus’ birth.

I am compiling a list of resources that we have been using. We have been reading the Bible every morning…the Christmas story in Luke on most days, and adding in Old Testament verses dealing with the prophecies.

So far we have focused on Isaiah 7:14, Micah 5:2, and Hosea 11:1. 

We also are worshipping together each morning by singing Christmas hymns.  A beautiful way to start the day.

I am still using spelling words from our scriptures. Each child has a list on Spelling City. Every Friday they are tested on their words.

Our history is all based on biblical history right now. For science, we plan on watching The Star of Bethlehem video and learning about the science behind the actual star of Bethlehem.

We are also using these video to really understand the science and mathematical probability that Jesus fulfilled all of the prophecies in the Old Testament:

Jesus Christ historically fulfilled over 300 prophecies accidentally

300 Messianic Prophecies Fulfilled

The Messiah Prophecy Fulfilled

Unbelievable. Do you know the probability that He coincidentally fulfilled just 17  of the prophecies is

480,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000, or one chance in 480 billion x 1 billion x 1 trillion? And there are over 300 prohecies! Fascinating stuff.

I just would also like to add…keep looking for everyday life lessons. It is so important to make learning more than anything in a text book, but real and applicable to life. My daughter was making cookies the other day, and it was delightful when she squealed from the kitchen, “Oh fractions make sense now!” She was using the measuring cup and she had to adjust some of them because we didn’t have all the cups necessary. For example, she needed 3/4 cup and I didn’t have that one, so she took 1/2 and 1/4.  She said when she saw it in real life it made more sense. Real life learning. The only time where it really sticks. 

 Here is a list of some things we have used so far. I will be posting more about this through December.
