A new television show that will premiere Wednesday evening began with a provocative series about "Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus" that aims to strengthen the faith of believers and challenge the skepticism of atheists and Jewish cynics, say promoters of the program.
Dr. Michael Brown, Jewish follower of Jesus and Old Testament apologist, is taking his moral and cultural revolution to a wider audience in the show called "Answering Your Toughest Questions" on NRB TV, available on DirecTV and Sky Angel.
"God is not afraid of tough questions. In fact, he welcomes them," said Brown, author, professor and nationally syndicated radio host. "If we are really following truth, we shouldn't be afraid of challenges to our faith."
Brown's publicists say the show is expected to reach tens of millions of viewers on NRB TV. The show premieres in its regular time slot on Wednesday, July 10, at 7 p.m. EDT, with additional weekly airings Mondays at 4 p.m. and Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m.
The "Answering Jewish Objections to Jesus" series is scheduled for 32 weeks. Brown has spoken about revival in America, the need for moral and cultural revolution and Jewish outreach throughout his ministry career.
A description of Brown in an announcement about the show states, "As a Jewish, heroin-shooting, rock band drummer turned Jesus-follower at age 16, Brown immediately began sharing his faith with friends and facing challenges from Jewish leaders that led him to years of study. From LSD to Ph.D., he has devoted his life to activating an awakening in the church. Considered the world's foremost Jewish apologist, he has debated Jewish rabbis, agnostic professors and gay activists on radio, TV and college campuses."
"To believers, Brown offers eye-opening enlightenment and growth in faith to become better witnesses," his publicist continues. "To seekers, he invites tough questions in a journey of discovery."
Brown added, "We have often used the Bible to sanction our own prejudices. Instead, we need to tackle tough issues and seek the truth even with our most difficult questions."
The show will take on concerns such as "How could Jesus be the Messiah when he left the world plagued by chaos and war for over 2,000 years since he came?" and "How can we worship the God of the Old Testament who appears to be a genocidal egomaniac?"
The television show will also feature some of his most acclaimed debates with Jewish leaders and atheists, according to the announcement.

Brown is president of FIRE School of Ministry, professor of Bible and Hebrew studies at several leading seminaries and host of "The Line of Fire" nationally syndicated live radio talk show. He has preached in more than 25 nations and is the author of 22 books and numerous scholarly and popular articles.
