Verse Ref.:
Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.
And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Though I might also have confidence in the flesh. If any other man thinketh that he hath whereof he might trust in the flesh, I more. Circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, an Hebrew of the Hebrews; as touching the law, a Pharisee. Concerning zeal, persecuting the church; touching the righteousness which is in the law, blameless. But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ. And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith. That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.

About This Product

Thousands of capable people have worked hard for centuries, providing many solid historical and logical proofs for the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. They’ve set this tremendous historical fact apart from the many ancient myths by pointing out that …

1. Jesus was seen by over five hundred witnesses at one moment, not just by one or two credulous followers. Most of these witnesses were still living to provide eye-witness testimony to a living Christ when Paul wrote about them in 1 Corinthians 15:6.

2. A resurrected Jesus appeared on many occasions to many different people. These weren’t emotional reactions to fantastic shapes baked into the day’s loaf of bread, but physical appearances where He could be touched, as in John 20:27.

3. Many haters of Christ, such as the Apostle Paul, had their entire lives changed by a personal encounter with Him (Philippians 3:4‑10). How could a demonstrably dead person delude someone into following Him and announcing that He wasn’t dead but living?

4. The manuscripts presenting the evidence above are far more abundant and accurate than any of their contemporary documents. We can’t dismiss the Bible without dismissing all other ancient writings. For many other proofs presented in greater depth, please see: www.TheResurrectionOfJesusChrist.org

When my wife and I recently bought a new car, we invited a mechanic friend along to test drive it. He looked under the hood, slammed on the brakes, swerved the car and gave it a thorough exam. But when we decided to buy, we still didn’t really know if the engine would work consistently (it has) or if the battery was good (it wasn’t). Our decision was supported by the best evidence we could collect but was ultimately a decision of the heart.

My philosophy teaching assistant in college made a heart decision too. A student asked her several questions about what evidence she would accept to prove there was a God. Not finding any she would receive, he fumbled for an irrefutable proof: “What if the clouds were to line up to form the precise words, ‘I’m God and I want to speak to you.’ ” Her answer was, “I’d prefer to find any other explanation before invoking God.” Her problem wasn’t evidence but a heart that had no room for God.

“God also hath highly exalted Him … that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow … and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord” (Philippians 2:9‑11). Do you recognize Him for who He is, a living person in heaven at this moment? Yes, he was born in a manger, and “when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly” (Romans 5:6). But He isn’t dead on a cross today; He’s alive and waiting to hear our hearts cry out, “What must I do to be saved [from our sinful disobedience to Him]?” His answer: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:30‑31).
