More Evidence of Jesus’ Resurrection

Here is a classic quote from Billy Graham that bears repeating in light of the recent “Jesus Tomb” special:

“There is more evidence that Jesus rose from the dead than there is that Julius Caesar ever lived or Alexander the Great died at the age of 33. It is strange that historians accept thousands of facts for which they can produce only shreds of evidence. But in the face of overwhelming evidence of the resurrection of Jesus Christ they cast a skeptical eye and hold intellectual doubts. The trouble with those people is that they do not want to believe.” – Billy Graham, Peace with God

    Re: Evidence for the Resurrection, I recommend the books by Lee Strobel, titled “The Case for Christ” and “The Case for the Resurrection”. These are excellent books, easy reading and with a mass of evidence for the Resurrection.

    Frank Morison’s “Who Moved the Stone” is another great book on the resurrection. This one had a big impact on me as a teenager.

    That’s the whole significance with this “finding Jesus’ bones” thing. If they can “prove” that Jesus did not raise bodily from the dead, it disrupts the very roots of Christianity.

    If Jesus did not raise bodily from the dead, he never really conquered death. We would not be able to be ressurected physically someday. The new earth would not be a physical place because Jesus would have only redeemed the spiritual, not the physical world. Not to mention the validity of the gospels would be totally destroyed.
