4 Points of Evidence for the Resurrection

Neil Shenvi
April 14, 2023

Historically sound, both Christian and from other sources, evidence points to the death by crucifixion of Jesus and to his subsequent burial in a tomb. Shenvi discusses such accounts, and then considers the implication of the empty tomb and the faith of his followers regarding his resurrection.

"The apostles were repeatedly beaten and imprisoned. We have good historical evidence that James, Peter, and Paul were all executed for their faith, and church tradition maintains that as many as eleven of the twelve apostles were eventually martyred.21 Given the suffering that the apostles faced, it is difficult to maintain that they knew the resurrection to be a hoax. What would their motivation have been if they knew for certain that they had invented the resurrection stories?"
