For us men and our salvation He came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit, He was born of the Virgin Mary , and became man. For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate; He suffered, died, and was buried.

The Resurrection : 

The Resurrection “Everything that we have talked about thus far is meaningless unless Jesus really did rise from the dead…..If Jesus did not rise from the dead then he is just another interesting moral religious teacher like Buddha or Mohammad………”

Evidence for the Resurrection : 

Evidence for the Resurrection First of all………….. Understand the difference between scientific proof & legal proof Scientific proof is by experimental data Legal proof is by accumulation of evidence

Resurrection Possibilities : 

Resurrection Possibilities Resurrection is a made up legend. Body stolen by the Disciples. Jesus never actually died. Disciples hallucinated Jesus after the crucifixion. Jesus rose from the dead

Made-up Legend?? : 

Made-up Legend?? Historical fact: The tomb was & is empty. The Jews could have ended all of this by presenting the dead body of Jesus. Jews, Romans, & Christians all agreed that the tomb was empty.

The “Stolen Body” Theory : 

The “Stolen Body” Theory Why would the disciples allow themselves to be killed for a lie? What would have been their motive? How could all of the disciples created and stayed unified with this deceptive hoax? They would not have made women the discoverers of the empty tomb. The transformation of the Apostles. What about the thousands who claimed to have seen Jesus risen from the dead? What about St. Paul? What about the Roman guards & the seal?

1 Corinthians 15:3-8 : 

1 Corinthians 15:3-8 Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, he was buried, he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and he appeared to Peter and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.

Jesus Never Died TheoryThen married Mary Magdalene….according to the DaVinci code. : 

Jesus Never Died TheoryThen married Mary Magdalene….according to the DaVinci code. Medically impossible; the Romans were professional executioners. Would have been half dead when He appeared to the Apostles; would they have worshipped Him? All the resurrection accounts Jesus looks different and walks through doors etc.. Who moved the stone (4000 lbs)??

Disciples Hallucinated Jesus : 

Disciples Hallucinated Jesus Mass hallucinations do not occur. Each person would have hallucinated a different Jesus (do multiple people ever have the same exact dream??). The number of different people and times that Jesus appeared contradicts this. The empty tomb??

Other Considerations : 

Other Considerations The graveclothes were empty but ordered in the shape of a man. Appeared to Paul who hated Christianity

Professor Thomas Arnold, chair of modern history at Oxford University : 

Professor Thomas Arnold, chair of modern history at Oxford University "I have been used for many years to study the histories of other times, and to examine and weigh the evidence of those who have written about them, and I know of no one fact in the history of mankind which is proved by better and fuller evidence of every sort, to the understanding of a fair inquirer, than the great sign which God hath given us that Christ died and rose again from the dead."
