Can We Believe in a Dead Man Rising?

Simon Edwards
March 29, 2023

Simon Edwards affirms his faith in Jesus' Resurrection.

"If you were to gather every academic historian, whether Christian, atheist, agnostic or otherwise and ask them what are the bedrock facts about Jesus that everyone agrees on, then we would have at least the following three facts:

  1. that he died by crucifixion
  2. that his disciples genuinely believed that he rose from the dead and appeared to them on a number of occasions
  3. that the early church exploded in numbers soon after Jesus death.

Now, if the resurrection happened it explains these bedrock facts perfectly. So, the question to ask is, “are there any plausible alternative explanations for these bedrock facts?”"
