Can the rise of Christianity be explained by the spread of a lie? Is the Christian faith nothing more than an elaborate conspiracy?
Was the empty tomb the result of a malicious or crafty theft? Can this popular argument explain the rise of the Resurrection belief?
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?
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 heart of Christian theology centers around the person of Jesus Christ. John 3:16 says that if we would confess and believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, died on the cross for our atonement, and rose from the grave, we would be saved. However, before we can begin to defend the truth of the Christian faith we need to first ask if Jesus really was who He and His followers said He was.
In the Gospel of John Jesus tells His disciples that they will go on to perform works even greater than His. Is Jesus telling His followers that they will perform miracles that will surpass His own?
Does Christ see us as a resurrected body or a corpse on a cross?
Does Matthew 28:16-17 provide evidence that some doubted the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ?
There has been some confusion among critics of the faith regarding Jesus’s stance on family. Was He anti-family? Let’s take a look.
Should we accept people for who they are, even when they sin?
