Was the Resurrection recorded in history—by sources outside of “His story”?
Can we prove the Resurrection in the Gospels—without using the Gospels?
The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the central belief on which the Christian faith is founded. And yet, many Christians are unsure how to respond to questions about the historical record of the risen Christ.
