Course Description

The world’s leading expert on the resurrection of Christ has created an entire course just for you!

Distinguished Research Professor of Apologetics and Philosophy at Liberty University, Dr. Gary Habermas, is one of the most respected scholars on the resurrection of Jesus; and in this course, he'll teach you everything he’s learned.


There is no more important event in human history than the Resurrection of Christ. This event not only evidences God’s intervention and love into the human condition, it tells the world that Christ is Lord.

The great thing about the resurrection of Christ is that it is not something God asks believers to accept with blind faith. This is an event that happened in human history with hundreds of historic details that people are called to examine to gain confidence in their faith in Christ.

That is why this 30-session Credo Course featuring renowned expert Dr. Gary Habermas is focused solely on the historicity of the resurrection of Christ. There is not a more important event for Christians to know inside and out. The historicity of the resurrection is sure to tame any skeptic (outside and within), causing us all to fall on our face and worship the one true Lord, Jesus Christ.
