Four Gardens of Text, Context, Conquest and Conquest – Ravi Zacharias

In this video, Ravi Zacharias argues for the existence of God.  He points to the order in the universe and the lack of time required to account for the complexity of humanity as starting points.  He then walks through four gardens – text, context, contest and conquest

1) the garden of the text “God has spoken” (8:30) – He tells us that a) thee is a creator b) there is a purpose c) we are not alone d) we are moral entities
2) the garden of the context “it is written” (9:35) – as moral/spiritual beings, we are given a  framework to determine what’s right and wrong.  He uses an example of the difference between an individual and his/her practice with regard to accusations of discrimination of homosexual but not blacks by pointing out that race and sexuality are sacred and that neither should be de-sacredized
3) the Garden of Gethsemane as the contest (12:20) – Jesus paid the price of forgiveness to provide certainty of our destiny
4) the garden of conquest and culmination (19:00) – Jesus rose from the dead as the final conquest
