Truth corresponds to reality and is internally consistent. Therefore, logic and reason must be used to interpret and discern truth from error. Jesus demonstrated this as he used reason to expose error and present truth. So the use of the basic principles and procedures of reasoning were an essential part of Jesus’s apologetic. All people, even in their fallen state, have this ability, and Jesus used it in attempting to help them see the truth.
— Norman Geisler, from The Apologetics of Jesus, p. 77
