Risen: Facts of Christ’s Resurrection

A Couple Thoughts Concerning the Facts of Christ’s Resurrection

Today, I would say the claim concerning the resurrection is more impressive than any by the religious competition (former atheist Anthony Flew).

It’s worth noting that the apostles saw the risen Christ, touched the risen Christ, and died tortuous deaths whilst proclaiming the truth of the resurrection. They did this when all they had to do was deny it to avoid persecution and death. Yea, many people die for lies, but no collective, diverse group of people die for a lie when they have sure knowledge that it is a lie.

Christ the Lord is risen today, Sons of men and angels say. Raise your joys and triumphs high; Sing, you heavens, and earth reply (Charles Wesley).

Furthermore, all known ancient documents that refer to the subject report an empty tomb. Even though the manner in which one accepts or rejects the evidence on the historicity of ancient documents is controlled by one’s presuppositions, the facts are mighty. The evidence is there, and it is impressive at that, but there is an important distinction between proof and persuasion.

Resurrection Evidence

The Christian worldview alone offers a confirmed resurrection of a Savior to demonstrate its authority. The Greek and other pseudo-resurrected gods were not historical figures. The only documents we have concerning the false gods/myths are the specific documents dated hundreds of years after Christianity arose.

Moreover the actual conflict is among presuppositions. The Christian presupposes God who raised Christ from the dead and provides all the required pre-essentials for the universal operational features of reason that allow one to investigate anything, including the events surrounding the resurrection of Christ.
