'JESUS MYTHS' - NEW APOLOGETICS VIDEOS RELEASED

The latest series of video shorts from UK apologetics ministry Focus is now available online and on DVD. Titled Jesus Myths, "... it unpacks the modern world's myths about Jesus, and gets at the facts behind the fictions," says Focus founder Dave Couchman. All the videos can be embedded in websites and blogs using the YouTube embed code, shared in Facebook, or downloaded for projection in, for example, youth groups.
