Could the rise of Christianity be explained by a supposed evil twin who had impersonated Jesus following His crucifixion? Is this a viable theory or a disastrous rationale?
Can the rise of Christianity be explained by the occurrence of hallucinations? Were the disciples only seeing things that weren’t really there?
How do we explain the rise of Christianity? Was it a hoax perpetrated by the disciples or the persuasive charms of a charismatic leader?
Were there really guards set to watch the tomb of Jesus or was their existence invented as a cover-up?
Was the empty tomb the result of a malicious or crafty theft? Can this popular argument explain the rise of the Resurrection belief?
Could the empty tomb of the Gospels be the result of an unfortunate mistake? Perhaps Jesus’s burial in the tomb of Joseph of Arimathea was merely temporary?
Why do female witnesses serve as powerful evidence for the existence of the empty tomb?
Is the empty tomb a believable piece of evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ? Is there any reason to believe that the empty tomb is historical?
The final piece of the minium facts approach details the conversion of Jesus’ unbelieving brother, James. Why is this such an important piece of evidence and why should we believe it’s true?
The conversion of Saul of Tarsus, better known by the name of Paul, is one of the most convincing (or perplexing) pieces of data surrounding the Resurrection. But why should we believe Paul’s conversion was genuine?
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?
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?
We’ve examined and defended many of the divine claims made by Jesus Christ in the Gospel accounts and now it’s time to put them into context. Why did Jesus Christ come to earth and what did He come to accomplish?
In our look into the divine claims of Jesus, we have argued for the authenticity of the claims by noting the allusions to the OT, the date of the claims, and the character of Jesus Himself in the trilemma. But everything we have argued thus far amounts to nothing if the major claims to divinity were completely misunderstood from the beginning. When Jesus calls Himself the Son of Man, what, exactly, does He mean?
