Scepticism and Doubt (Easter 2015)

Posted: 27 March 2015

Soon after the Ayatollah Khomeini called for a fatwa on Salman Rushdie for his controversial book, The Satanic Verses, Rushdie said, ‘Doubt ... is the central condition of a human being in the 20th century ... We cannot any longer have a fixed certain view of anything ... Certainty crumbles in your hand ... Everything we know is pervaded by doubt.’

Come along this Easter as we look at whether we can have any certainty in life by looking at the stories of two of the most famous sceptics and doubters in history: Pontius Pilate and Doubting Thomas.

Pontius Pilate the Sceptic:
‘What is truth?’ (John 18:38)
Friday 3 April, 9.30am – Good Friday

Thomas the Doubter:
‘Unless I see ... I will not believe.’ (John 20:25)
Sunday 5 April, 4.30pm – Easter Sunday
