Licona join as guests with moderator Justin Brierley on radio show "Unbelievable," a weekly program aired on UK Premier Christian Radio from the London studio. The debates intentional theme was "Is There Biblical Evidence for the Resurrection?" mounted on Bart Ehrman's book "Forged: Writing in the Name of God--Why the Bible’s Authors Are Not Who We Think They Are." Ehrman book reveals which texts were forged in the name of Jesus's disciples and considers how the deceptions of an unnamed few have prevailed for centuries.
