Happy Easter! He is risen!
Jesus’ Resurrection on Easter morning is the focal point of Christian apologetics. As the apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians:
“For if the dead are not raised, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is useless; you are still in your sins. … For if only in this life we have hope in Christ, we should be pitied more than anyone.” (1 Corinthians 15:16-17, 19 NET)
From this, he concludes:
“If the dead are not raised, let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.” (1 Corinthians 15:32 NET)
And, while that’s not all I might be doing, I certainly wouldn’t be writing Christian apologetics articles!
Collection of previous series on the Resurrection of Jesus
Over the last few years, I wrote a series of articles on the Resurrection. I thought this might be an appropriate time and place to gather them all here.
And, just in case your church doesn’t have enough excellent Easter music, (and even if they do) you can check out one of my favorite contemporary hymns, which is certainly appropriate for the occasion, or just about any day of worship!
Another look at the evidence for the Resurrection
In my last post about the recent Apologetics Canada Conference 2016, I told you about case-maker (a.k.a. Christian apologist) J Warner Wallace. So, for a bit(1)understatement of the century! You’ll be blown away. of new material to add to my articles above, I’d like to share his presentation on the Resurrection. (Also, if you’re in eastern Canada, the conference is still upcoming in April, and you can buy access to a digital version of the conference if you weren’t/aren’t able to attend.)
Update: the particular video described above seems to no longer be on YouTube, so I’ll replace it with Jim’s excellent ‘God’s Crime Scene’ presentation I saw at one of the early Apologetics Canada conferences. But, here is a YouTube search link where you can see some of Jim’s resurrection oriented presentations at other conferences and on his own channel.
