Did Jesus Really Rise from the Dead?
The Bible teaches that Jesus of Nazareth appeared on the world stage with an unprecedented sense of divine authority—the authority to stand and speak in God’s place. This aroused the anger of the religious leaders of His time, and, at their insistence, the Roman authorities condemned Him to death by crucifixion. According to the biblical record, however, this did not end His story.
His closest followers claimed that God had raised Him from the dead thereby supremely vindicating His radical claims. For millions of believers throughout the ages, the resurrection provides comfort and hope; human-kind’s most hated and feared enemy—death itself—has been defeated . . . or has it?
Many feel that the resurrection of Jesus is simply too fantastic to be believed. They argue that extraordinary claims, like the resurrection, ought not to be believed unless they are supported by extraordinary evidence. For these people, there simply is no good reason to think that the resurrection was an actual, historic event.
