Fact #2: Jesus’ disciples believed that he rose and appeared to them To establish this fact I will use 3 lines of evidence; 1) Paul’s testimony about the disciples, 2) oral traditions passed through the early church, and 3) written works of the early church.

Fact #1: Jesus was killed by crucifixion Skeptic James Tabor says, “I think we need have no doubt that given Jesus’ execution by Roman crucifixion he was truly dead.” Both atheistic New Testament critic Gerd Ludemann and agnotic Bart Ehrman, calls the crucifixion an indisputable fact.  Why?

Part 5 Five historical facts

In constructing a case for Jesus’ resurrection, it’s important to distinguish between the evidence and the best explanation of that evidence. This distinction is crucial because in this case the evidence is relatively uncontroversial; it’s agreed to by most scholars. On the other hand, the explanation of that evidence is controversial.

I am arguing that Jesus physical rose from the dead after 3 days and appeared to many.  What you have to understand is there is a lot at stake if I am wrong about this.  The Apostle Paul states the problem in 1 Corinthians 15:17-19 “And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is […] Read more
