Is this really a debate or just a conversation. I assumed Joel Marcus believed in the resurrection so do you have any idea where he might be coming from in this "debate"? Thanks.

Doesn't look like a "debate" to me either; not described or implied as such anywhere that I can see except in Mark G's heading.

Interesting description of the sponsor organization:
"The Duke Socratic Club is the primary organizer of this event. The Duke Socratic Club exists to bring together various perspectives in dialogue on a range of topics for the sake of the Gospel." (emphasis mine)
Apparently there's a limit to the extent of Socratic questioning allowed in the DSC.
