On the main site we address the Biblical truth of God's Unique Unity. Recently Dr. William Lane Craig, noted philosopher of time and evangelical apologist, debated Rabbi Tovia Singer on the topic of whether God is Triune. Though there is much talking past each other, Rabbi Singer's basic argument was: why would HaShem punish us for not believing what wasn't explicitly believed for thousands of years before Messiah? Dr. Craig points out that this is simply misdirection, and answers that faith requires responding to the revelation given. And we might also add, faith was always to be in the promises of God, which are realized in the Jewish Messiah.

In part-two they discuss the divinity of Messiah in the New Covenant, and Jews who believe in you-know-who come up at 5:11.

Dr. Craig is sharp as always, though one might wish he had time to explore how the Hebrew texts do in fact hint at the plurality in God.

(A completely unnecessary point: why did they name the show Faith Under Fire? Its not like they get persecuted on camera every week! ;)
