The Resurrection – an illustration

The resurrection - an illustrated poem by Anchor Lines, a Christian Webcomic

The resurrection of Jesus from the grave – a central pillar of the Christian faith, and unsurprisingly one of the elements that many people have a hard time accepting.

Again I would point to Lee Strobel’s The Case for Easter: A Journalist Investigates the Evidence for the Resurrection. It breaks down the major arguments in favour of the empty tomb and the resurrection, taking a look both at the historical and logical evidence for it, including the arguments set out in the comic above. The book is fairly short and an easy read, although it obviously has some serious implications if it leads you to conclude that Jesus’ resurrection may indeed have happened.

There comes a point for many people where the issue is not so much whether the facts point to he resurrection – which I would argue they do – but whether it is possible for a person to be miraculously raised to life. Personally, if I am willing to accept that God is sovereign over all creation, then it is no stretch at all to expect him capable of miracles that bend and stretch the laws of nature to his will.

Plainly this alone doesn’t answer all the questions that you might have about the Bible and Christianity – but I hope it at least leads you to consider again the gospel story of Jesus’ death and resurrection. We have intelligence for a reason – and we don’t believe based on blind faith alone, but also on the basis of the tangible evidence for Jesus’ return to life.
