The number of people to whom Jesus Christ appeared at one time!

Around AD 57, the Apostle Paul wrote:

“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep” (1 Corinthians 15:3–6).

When Paul wrote his letter to the people in the city of Corinth, many of those 500 people were still alive. They were able to back up what Paul wrote and testify that they had seen Jesus after he rose from the dead.

We know that Jesus rose from the dead based on what we read in the Bible. And many eyewitnesses confirmed that Jesus is alive!
