Assumption, Claim, Postmodernism, Judeo-Christianity, Truth-Giver, Evidence, Over-Arching
As modern culture is steeped in a major shift in thinking, many facets of human life have become increasingly difficult upon which to agree. This shift, coined postmodernism, unveils a reality in which claims on Truth are questioned readily, and denied – almost eagerly. Amidst this culture, the key questions in life revolve around whether it is possible to answer life’s fundamental questions: “Who am I?”, “Where did I come from?”, “Is there a God?”, and “What is my Purpose in it all?” The key claim of Judeo-Christianity, hinging on the resurrection of Jesus, claims to accurately depict the answers to these questions. This paper discusses whether the assumption and claims of Judeo-Christianity, in light of postmodernity, are still relevant today.
