What Some Famous Thinkers Thought Of The Evidence For The Resurrection Of Jesus Christ

Have you considered the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ?

Here is what a few prominent thinkers of the past have had to say regarding the evidence:

Brooke Foss Wescott (a famed scholar of the 19th century) said: "There is no historic incident better or more variously supported than the resurrection of Christ."

Dr. Paul L. Maier (a prominent professor of ancient history) stated: "No shred of evidence has yet been discovered in literary sources, epigraphy or archaeology that would disprove that the tomb in which Jesus was buried was actually empty on the morning of the 1st Easter."

Dr. Simon Greenleaf (a Harvard University professor of Law) proclaimed: "According to the laws of legal evidence used in courts of law, there is more evidence for the historical fact of the resurrection of Jesus Christ than for just about any other event in history."

Dr. Frank Morrison (a rationalistic lawyer) decided to take three years off from his law practice in order to try to disprove the resurrection of Jesus Christ. After three years of intense study, he found that the sheer weight of the evidence compelled him to conclude that Jesus Christ actually did rise from the dead. As a consequence he wrote the famous book: "Who Moved the Stone?"

C.S.Lewis (a world famous literary genius) was also interested in the accuracy of the resurrection. After evaluating the evidence for Christianity, Lewis concluded that in other religions there was "no such historical claim as in Christianity."

Are you aware of the overwhelming evidence for Christianity?
