Jason Pratt: January 9, 2018

Join us on Mission 18-01, the first mission of 2018, as we search for the "real Jesus"! In it's December 2017 cover article, the National Geographic features this statement: "The Real Jesus What Archaeology Reveals About His Life." This article was written by archaeologist turn journalist, Kristin Romey, who seeks out guidance and advice from Franciscan, Father Alliata, and former priest and co-chair of the Jesus Seminar, John Dominic Crossan. Rather than an earnest look at how so much of archaeology confirms the claims of Scripture over and over this article is a very subtle defiance of Scripture in an attempt to compare tradition with archaeology rather than Scripture with archaeology. Tradition is more highly esteemed in Roman and Greek Orthodox Catholicism than is Scripture so this is no surprise. This is also consistent with what Jesus declares in Mathew 16:13-17 as He asks His disciples, "Whom do men say that the Son of man am?" This will serve as our launch pad as we review this article along side some statements from William F. Albright, an archaeologist and focus of this week's Scriptural Scientist Spotlight.

Jason Pratt

Jason is an active duty officer in the U.S. Navy as an Aerospace 

Engineering Duty Officer who holds a Master of Aerospace 

Engineering degree from Georgia Tech University, is a member of 

the Navy’s Space Cadre and was a Navy selectee for astronaut 


It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand the simplicity of the 

gospel of saving grace in Jesus Christ, but Jason’s experience 

and knowledge does make him uniquely qualified to speak on 

both biblical and scientific matters.

As a Naval Flight Officer and a graduate of the United States Naval 

Test Pilot School, Jason has flown over twenty types of fixed wing, 

rotary wing and glider aircraft including: F-14 Tomcat, F/A-18F 

Super Hornet, F-15E Strike Eagle, and F-16D Fighting Falcon.

As an atheist Jason placed his hope in his knowledge and 

achievements, but when Christ saved him he found the freedom 

of new life that surpasses the thrill and excitement of any fighter 

jet he’s ever flown. His testimony is one of turning from his own 

abilities and confidence in himself, and putting his trust and faith 

in Jesus Christ alone.

Jason received his undergraduate degree at Penn State 

University, where he met his wife Sherri. The Pratts have three 

children, and are currently stationed in southern California.

Jason was a self proclaimed and devout atheist until the age of 26. 

He now devotes as much time as possible to the Lord’s service, by 

assisting the chaplains in his commands, volunteering at his church 

and speaking at churches and Christian conferences, encouraging 

believers to be informed by Scripture, bold in their faith and 

courageous in witnessing.
