D. James Kennedy to counter ABC’s Search for Jesus with NBC special

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–When ABC’s Peter Jennings hosted a television documentary on the life of Jesus, the network heard from conservative Christians who complained that the Biblical view of Christ was not accurate.

D. James Kennedy, pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church and president of Evangelism Explosion International, was one of those conservatives.

On Tuesday, Dec. 26, Kennedy will present a response to Jennings’ “A Search for Jesus,” with a one-hour primetime special on NBC. “Who is this Jesus,” is scheduled to be shown at 8 p.m. EDT and will present a balanced view of Jesus, not the typical medial portrayal, according to Clint Pruett, U.S. Regional Coordinator of Evangelism Explosion International.

Pruett said the program will be an “excellent opportunity to answer those with sincere questions about what we believe.”

Pruett noted that the show is a result of what he called a one-sided presentation by ABC.

“Instead of accurately portraying a Biblical view of our Lord, liberal ‘experts’ cast doubts on the deity of Christ,” Pruett said. “No conservatives were interviewed; the information was one-sided.”
