Something to think about.
He is Risen
6 He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. Matthew 28:6
In the book, A case for Christ, the author sets out to prove that the resurrection did not happen. After an exhaustive investigation, the author comes to the conclusion that the resurrection did indeed happen. He found that the reports in the New Testament were true.
The thing about the truth is, it is indisputable. What that means is despite your disposition about an event or a report the truth is not affected. For example, if the resurrection did not happen Christianity is pointless. It would mean that Christ died pretty much the same as any other man. It would dismantle the foundation of every Christian belief. Without the resurrection, Christianity would have fallen off the map as quickly as His death. And that truth would have destroyed Christianity. Your acceptance or rejection of truth does not affect it. In other words, it does not make any difference to the truth if you believe it or not. The truth stands on its own forever, there is nothing that can change or effect the truth.
That is the crux of the issue, is it true? Did the resurrection occur? If it did it, it is truth and just like any other truth, it can not be changed regardless of anyone’s support or rejection of it.
He is risen is a statement, the question is it is valid. In the book, the author does an excellent job of answering the questions about the validity of the reports of His resurrection. As a Christian or a non-Christian, you need to answer this question for yourself. If He was resurrected your eternity is assured if He wasn’t resurrected, you’re not bound by any of the claims of Christianity. I believe if you follow the evidence as did the author of the book you will come to the same conclusion. He Is Risen.
