Would You Die for a Lie?

Was Jesus a Historical Person?

Part 4



This is Ken Ham, popular speaker on radio and TV about science and the Bible.


Some people claim Jesus never existed as a historical person but was just made up. But the testimony of the disciples says otherwise.

Each of Jesus’ disciples suffered for their faith. Eleven of them were martyred for refusing to denounce Jesus as the risen Lord. The twelfth endured persecution and was exiled for his testimony about Christ.

People will suffer and die for something they think is true. No sane person would willingly go through persecution for something they knew was a lie.

If the disciples had invented Jesus and His Resurrection, would they really be willing to suffer and be put to death for it?

No! Their testimony is clear.
