6 Long before the printing press, the radio, movies, and television, the martyrs spread the good news of the risen Christ. Some people still reject that news, and one strategy of rejection is to water it down, mixing it with enough skepticism to make the Gospels seem archaic and alien. Once we reject the miracles because belief in the miraculous now seems "outdated," it becomes easy to reject the message as outdated too.
