Evidence for Jesus Resurrection from a Historian
"Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?"
- John 11:25-26
In this interview with staff apologist Jacob Daniel (apologetics.com), world-renowned scholar and authority Dr. Gary Habermas presents his 'Minimal Facts' approach for the resurrection of Jesus Christ. He argues that, today, the scholars in secular world are moving more towards accepting the data on resurrection as credible facts. He encourages serious thinkers by pointing out that, it is truly a favorable and positive era to study resurrection and one must go where the evidences lead.
"Fortunately, Christianity is peculiar in that it is a religion that is rooted in historical events. It makes claims that can therefore be investigated historically."
