Evidence That Jesus Actually Died And Arose.

Evidence That Jesus Actually Died And Arose.
By:  Bill and Teddy Rogers

This
evidence

demonstrates
Jesus uniqueness in history and proves that He is God’s Son. No one
else was able to predict his own resurrection and then accomplish it.

PROPOSED EXPLANATIONS FOR
EMPTY TOMB
  • Jesus was only unconscious
    and later revived.
  • The women made a mistake and
    went to the wrong tomb.
  • Unknown thieves stole Jesus’
    body.
  • The disciples stole Jesus’
    body.
  • The religious leaders stole
    Jesus’ body to produce it later.
EVIDENCE AGAINST THESE
EXPLANATIONS
  • A
    Roman soldier told Pilate that Jesus was dead.
    (See
    Mark 15:44-45)
  • The
    Roman soldiers did not break Jesus’ legs, because He had already
    died, and one of them pierced Jesus’ side with a spear.
    (See
    John 19:32-34)
  • Joseph
    of Arimathea and Nicodemus wrapped Jesus’ body and placed it in the
    tomb.
    (See
    John 19:38-40)
  • Mary
    Magdalene and Mary the mother of Joses saw Jesus placed in the tomb.
    (See
    Matthew 27:59-61, Mark 15:47, and Luke 23:55)
  • On
    Sunday morning, Peter and John also went to the same tomb.
    (See
    John 20:3-9)
  • The
    tomb was sealed and guarded by Roman Soldiers.
    (See
    Matthew 27:65-66)
  • The
    disciples were ready to die for their faith. Stealing Jesus’ body
    would have been admitting that their faith was meaningless.
    (See
    Acts 12:2)
  • The
    tomb was guarded and sealed.
    (See
    Matthew 27:66)
  • If
    the religious leaders had taken Jesus’ body, they would have
    produced it to stop the rumors of His resurrection.
