How do we know that the resurrection actually happened?

A faith grounded in reasons and in miracles: Ten reasons

Season 3, episode 77
35 min / Published

Episode 78 - In this final episode on the Gospel of Luke, Stephanie ponders how we ground our faith in reason and in miracles both. We tackle TEN REASONS that make the resurrection true. From the anchoring in Jerusalem, to the disciples' testimonies--our humble prayer is that you will discover an angle that you have not yet considered, and that it will draw you deeper in worship of Christ as our true, risen Lord.

These ten reasons are:

1-     The Easter Sunday whispers started in Jerusalem itself.

2-     The resurrection rumors started spreading immediately.

3-     The authorities simply needed to produceJesus’ decomposing body to squash the early faith.

4-     Devout, Monotheistic Jews were unlikely to proclaim the resurrection.

5-     Extra-biblical sources indicate each of the twelve apostles died ALONE.

6-     The transfiguration hadn’t been enough.

7-     Paul ruthlessly persecuted Christians until the resurrected Christ gloriously convinced him.

8-     The disciples didn’t seek to cultivate their own glory.

9-     Fiction writers would have avoided inconsistencies.

10-   The first resurrection witnesses were women.

If these reasons don't seem enough... or if, instead, they piqued your curiosity... take a listen to unwrap each one, and to see how the threads, all together, lead to the unavoidable truth of the resurrection.
