Is there really any evidence that the disciples of Jesus claimed to have seen Him risen from the dead?
The central claim of the Christian faith is the proclamation of the resurrection of Jesus Christ and His Kingdom come. It is the miracle that began a movement that would change the world. But what is the evidence that this grand miracle ever occurred? Do we have good reasons to believe that Jesus really did die and rise again or is it nothing more than a wild superstition?
If the idea of a physical resurrection was a strictly Jewish belief, were they expecting a risen messiah or something else entirely?
From where did the belief in a physical Resurrection come from? Could we trace its origin to pagan roots or was it unlike anything else in antiquity?
Some critics have raised the objection that Jesus’ appearance to the apostle Paul on Damascus Road was purely spiritual or visionary in nature. Does this mean Christ’s Resurrection appearances in the Gospels were spiritual also?
In 1 Corinthians 15 is Paul teaching a spiritual, non-physical Resurrection? If so, does that mean the Gospel accounts are products or later, legendary embellishment?
When investigating the Resurrection of Jesus Christ what often goes without being said is the very definition of what we’re investigating. How are we to define the Resurrection of Jesus?
The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the centrepiece of Christianity. We can posit, with a number of arguments, that a god can theoretically exist, but the Resurrection of Jesus is what takes us to Christianity. Can the Resurrection be historically proven beyond a reasonable doubt, or is our faith nothing more than baseless superstition? Let’s begin our look into the most important historical investigation of all-time.
The right way to evangelize is a rightly oft-discussed topic but, in hopes of finding the right answer, we’ve made more than a few grievous mistakes along the way. One of the more alarming misunderstandings derives from Paul’s words in 1 Corinthians 9:19. Is Paul giving us a licence to compromise in order to save the lost?
Paul offers up instruction in the book of Timothy to give prayer and supplications to all men. However, critics note a number of verses in Jeremiah that appear to say otherwise.
If you’re familiar with popular Christianity you’ve probably heard the term “lukewarm” used once or twice. But what does the term mean and can it apply to more than bad behaviour?
If you’ve been investigating the skeptical arguments against religion (or, more accurately, the Christian faith) then you have likely come across the argument that, ultimately, culture is what determines religious faith. Is this an argument that stands under scrutiny?
Perhaps one of the most misused logical fallacies in religious debate is the No True Scotsman fallacy. How do we know when someone has committed the fallacy?
The command to love our enemies is one of the most well-known in the Bible. However, there appear to be passages that teach the opposite. How are we to address these?
If Christianity is true, how do we approach miracle claims in other religions? Is this an impossible hurdle to jump or have the critics gone a step too far?
