Evidence of the Resurrection in a Nutshell

20 Apr

The folks at Relcaiming the Mind have put out this very helpful blogpost detailing the internal and external evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ, along with his crucifixion, together make up the most important event in human history. And it is one that must be carefully considered and the implications thought through.

C. Michael Patton organizes the blogpost by first explaining the internal evidence:

Internal Evidence:

  • Honesty
  • Irrelevant Details
  • Harmony
  • Public Extraordinary Claims
  • Lack of Motivation for Fabrication

And then secondly, the external evidence…

External Evidence:

  • Preservation of the Documents
  • Archeology
  • Extra-biblical Attestation
  • Survival in a Hostile Environment

Click here to read a thorough, yet concise description of each point.
