Evidence for the Resurrection

Believing in the resurrection is far from foolishness!

Lee Strobel, author and former investigative journalist, summarises the evidence for the resurrection. In this short video Lee explains five strands of evidence which build a compelling case supporting Jesus’ resurrection.

There’s no dispute that Jesus was dead after being crucified:

  • The existence of early reports of Jesus’ resurrection (Within months of Jesus’ death).
  • The empty tomb.
  • Ancient sources that record the conviction of the disciples that they had encountered the risen Jesus.
  • And finally the fact that the disciples were willing to suffer and even die for what they proclaimed about Jesus being raised from the dead.
