Article: A Positive Case for the Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth by Sam Dallas

In this featured article, Sam Dallas of Solid Reasons presents a positive case for the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth.

Dallas does so using the "minimal facts" approach made popular by scholars Gary Habermas and Mike Licona.  This article is a great summary of the evidence for the following facts surrounding the historical Jesus and His resurrection from the dead:

1. Jesus died by crucifixion.
2. Jesus' disciples believed that he rose and appeared to them.
3. The church persecutor Paul was suddenly changed.
4. The skeptic of James, the brother of Jesus, was suddenly changed.
5. The tomb was empty.

You can check out the article here.

For those interested, Dallas also deals with some of the popular objections to Jesus' resurrection here.


Courage and Godspeed,
