Lectures on Biblical Inerrancy by Christopher T. Haun
Inerrancy, Shipwreck, Hermeneutic, and Zombies
Part 1 | Shipwreck
Here is part one of a four-part presentation by Christopher. It was presented at the annual meeting of the ISCA (International Society of Christian Apologetics) in April 2015. The theme of the conference was “Inerrancy and Evangelical Identity.” In this video, Christopher responds to three questions/objections raised by some against the ICBI’s parameters for inerrancy:
- What does article 19 of the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy mean by “grave consequences?”
- Is inerrancy a catalyst for apostasy?
- Is inerrancy a peripheral doctrine?
Part 2 | Realism
In this lecture, Christopher provides several responses to the objection raised by some about a dependency upon the philosophy of Scottish Common Sense Realism somehow tainting and invalidating the high view of Scripture among the Old-Princetonians (Machen, Warfield, Hodges) and the ICBI Council members.

Hermeneutics and “Zombies?”
Parts III and IV, which focus more on the hermeneutical vector against full inerrancy and the so-called problem of “Jewish Zombies” (raised saints of Jerusalem) in Matthew 27, have been written in essay form as part of a paper submitted for completion of the Prolegomena & Bibliogy course at Veritas International University in 2014, were adapted to PowerPoint slide format in 2015, but have so far never been presented or made public. It’s on the list of things to-do later.
