Ben Shapiro Interview of John MacArthur

By Pastor Charles Stolfus in Denton Bible Church about 1 month ago | 33709 views Link:

Good afternoon everyone,

I just finished listening to an extraordinary interview of John MacArthur by Ben Shapiro. When you can find an hour and 10 minutes of your time this will prove to be very rewarding.

As many of you are aware, Ben Shapiro is an Orthodox Jew and, of course, John MacArthur is an evangelical Christian. Ben Shapiro is probably known most for his radio and television shows as well as his exceptional debating skills. He regularly engages with speakers from a wide variety of political, religious and cultural ideologies.

In this interview Ben Shapiro gives John MacArthur an amazing amount of time to explain himself on a wide variety of issues.

The topics of discussion vary from the charge that the Bible defends slavery, to what the Bible says about homosexuality, to—and and this is of particular interest—what the differences are between Christianity and Judaism. This last subject is a masterful exposition of the Jewish foundation of Christianity as reflected in the Old Testament. This portion of the interview includes an amazing discussion of Isaiah’s prophetic anticipation of Christianity as inaugurated by Jesus Christ. Seriously, this section is truly amazing.

As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ this interview can help us understand why the birth of Christ matters more than any other event in human history.

Hope you have a blessed day.

I was a bit tearful towards the end as John M. was explaining Christ being the fulfillment of the Old Testament.  It is worth watching how endearing the conversation was towards the end.

Byron Serna

That was masterful.

Thanks for getting this in front us us, Charles. Will listen to this on my drive back to Denton this evening. Blessings!

Dania Boise

This was very interesting.  I was able to listen last night.  Thank you for sharing and my prayers go out to Ben Shapiro.  He is so close…..

Kendra King

Agreed!  It was a VERY good and very worth the watch!

Debi Habern

Charles, thank you so much for sharing this with us!  It is excellent and definitely worth the time to listen.  Praise God for MacArthur’s many years of ministry and his firm conviction to hold to TRUTH!!!

Francisco Soto

MacArthur is so good. Thank you for sharing this Charles.

If you enjoy Ben’s material, I would also recommend the interview he did with Dave Rubin and Jordan Peterson. Here you have 2 atheists in Dave and Jordan who have both come to the conclusion that atheism alone falls short, and that some sort of “theos” is necessary.  [video]. 

Another good one is his interview with noted atheist Michael Shermer. This one is good to really understand how atheists think, but it’s also interesting while studying Revelation when you hear Ben share his views on who Jews think the Messiah will be. [video]

Pastor Charles Stolfus

Francisco, Thanks for eat recommendations. I will definitely check these out.


Rhett Hulcy

Thank you Charles that was excellent.

Sue Smith

I enjoyed watching this interview so much. Ben Shapiro’s questions were great, and Pastor MacArthur’s answers were direct and loving. Shapiro will be the keynote speaker at the Right To Life March in January. 

Karen Dimarsico

I, too, enjoyed this interview with Ben Shapiro. I did enjoy their exchange, found it thoughtful and fascinating that Ben reads the NT yet his eyes have not been opened to the fact that Jesus is the Messiah.

Jenna Morris

Wow!!! I’m really excited to watch this. Thank you for a heads up! 🎉

Ken Hamilton

This is so powerful and MacArthur was so gentle in answering with such conviction.  Thanks for sharing this with us.

David Bruce

Check this one out too for further evidence of the great falling away in our time.
