Overstating the importance of the Resurrection is impossible. It conclusively demonstrated Christ’s power over the grave, secured our hope of eternal life, and proved that He truly was and is the Son of God.
Christians can take comfort in knowing that Jesus not only died for their sins, but He also rose from the dead a few days later. These core Christian truths have been attacked for centuries by leading critics and skeptics. But even their best explanations pose no threat to the truth.
If we re-interpret God’s Word in Genesis to fit man’s fallible opinion, then ultimately, it would only be consistent to apply this same hermeneutic (method of interpretation) elsewhere — even to Christ’s Resurrection
Like a good reporter piecing together a story from reliable eyewitnesses, we must examine all the eyewitness accounts recorded in God’s Word, realize that for Scripture to be reliable they must all be true, and then see how they fit together. These accounts tell us about the most important truth in the history of the world.
Christ’s Resurrection is the most mocked and vilified miracle in the annals of human history.
Tim Chaffey, AiG–US, responds to a reader who refers to the resurrected Christ as a “cosmic Jewish zombie.”
Like a good reporter piecing together a story, we must examine all the eyewitness accounts recorded in God’s Word, realize by faith that they must all be true, and then see how they fit together.
If Jesus was to be in the grave three days and nights, how do we fit those between Good Friday and Easter Sunday?
On Monday morning, February 26, 2007, I heard this opening statement by Matt Lauer on the NBC Today show: “Is this the tomb of Jesus?”
It’s the latest variation in a long line of lies: a claim that the tomb—and ossuary (bone box)—of Jesus has been found and, along with it, the ossuaries of other members of Jesus’ family, including His mother Mary and His alleged wife, Mary Magdalene.
The Lost Tomb of Jesus, to be broadcast this Sunday on the Discovery Channel, argues that the ossuaries found in a Jerusalem tomb in 1980 belong to Jesus, His mother Mary, and other family members, including Jesus’ alleged wife Mary Magdalene and one “Judah son of Jesus” who, the film says, is a son of Jesus and Mary Magdalene.
