The case has enthralled Western civilization for two millennia. But would the Biblical details surrounding the death and resurrection of Jesus hold up in court?
Homicide detective J. Warner Wallace, whose work has been featured on NBC Dateline, and who was a vocal atheist in college, will sift the evidence at Liquid Church in Morristown for four Sundays, starting on March 23, 2014.

COLD CASE INVESTIGATION REGARDING JESUS CHRIST’S DEATH & RESURRECTION
Public Invited To Witness Evidence-Based Techniques
Applied To Biblical Claims About Jesus Christ
March 19, 2014, MORRISTOWN, NJ — How can we know the Bible is telling the truth? Would the evidence regarding Jesus’ death stand up to today’s standards for reliable eyewitness testimony? Liquid Church, a non-denominational Christian church in New Jersey is hosting a special investigative series called, Cold Case Christianity. The message series will feature homicide detective J. Warner Wallace as he applies his cold case investigation skills to the Bible. The public is invited to attend the cross examination sessions during March and April.
Wallace will define core principles of modern day cold case investigations and utilize these principles to examine the reliability of the gospel eyewitness accounts from the Bible. His murder detective and professional investigative work has received national recognition; his cases have been featured on NBC Dateline, and he’s been awarded the Police and Fire Medal of Valor “Sustained Superiority” Award.
Tim Lucas, Lead Pastor of Liquid Church said, “We know people’s faith rests on understanding if the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ was real or not. What better way than to bring in a CSI detective and have him examine the Biblical evidence available for a homicide investigation?”
The public is invited to attend the entire message series, Cold Case Christianity, at one of Liquid Church’s four locations in Morristown, Mountainside, New Brunswick and Nutley.
Morristown // Hyatt Morristown at 9am, 10:30am or 12pm on March 23, 30, April 6, and April 13, 2014
