The Bible records many miracles at different periods of history, but none greater than the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. If we can find some evidence for this claim then the others will not be a concern.
The Bible states that Jesus Nazareth was crucified by the Roman soldiers, buried in a tomb and three days later he came back from the dead. This amazing claim should not be believed unless there is overwhelming evidence to support this.
The Lord Chief Justice of England declared, 'The evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is so strong that no intelligent jury in the world would fail to bring in a verdict that the resurrection story is true.' We know from painful experience that people who have been dead for three days never get up and walk, but if there is a God who made this world, he could do it, what evidence is there for us to check out?
First of all, the tomb was found empty and the Romans and the Jewish leaders would have no reason to remove the body. The disciples of Christ were too scared and shattered to overpower the Roman guard, break the seal on the stone and steal the body.
Secondly, many witnesses saw Jesus after his resurrection and one of his appearances was to more than 500 people at the same time.
Thirdly, the Roman guard of probably 16 hardened warriors, ran away from their post, a capital offence, and were given money to say the disciples stole the body while they were asleep, another capital crime.
Fourthly, the Jewish historian Josephus, who worked for the Romans wrote, that Pilate condemned Jesus to the cross and that 'he appeared to them alive on the third day.' There is a great deal more evidence.
