Background for the JW vs. PVK TR debate: Swinburne's argument for the probability of the resurrection
From my twitter @Riddle1689:
If you listened to the JW versus PVK debate on the TR, you might find this lecture by Oxford philosopher R. Swinburne arguing for the probability of the resurrection (cited by PVK) to be of interest.
PVK used Swinburne's three types of evidence (posterior historical; background; and prior historical) in his argument for the probability of the resurrection and applied this to an argument for the probability of the TR being the autograph.
It did not appear that JW was aware of Swinburne's argument or three types of evidence and never really offered any response to PVK's argument here.
