A View from the Altar / A dozen reasons to think Christ really did rise from the dead.
Skip to content

A dozen reasons to think Christ really did rise from the dead.

1. Various prophets foretold centuries in advance that the Messiah would be slain for our sins and rise again on the third day which, in fact, occurred.
2. The Lord Jesus Himself predicted His own death and resurrection, including the place and manner of His death, to be followed by His rising from the dead.
3. Christ was seen by many different witnesses on many different occasions after His resurrection.
4. The men who penned the Scriptures were reliable witnesses of other verifiable facts in the Gospels, thus proving themselves generally honest.
5. The early Christians knew where Christ had been buried, yet nothing like a shrine was developed at his burial place.
6. Christ’s witnesses, the Apostles in particular, were so convinced of the truth of their testimony that they were willing to suffer martyrdom for their faith, despite knowing that a mere word to recant would have delivered them from torture and death.
7. The testimony of the witnesses of Christ’s resurrection was confirmed by others who had personal knowledge of the fact.
8. The Apostle Paul’s miraculous conversion, prodigious labors, and world-changing revelations are explainable only upon the assumption that Jesus Christ indeed appeared to him on the Damascus road.
9. The church exists to this day, an institution founded upon the fact that Jesus Christ lives.
10. The stone was rolled away. Those who could have done this had every reason not to. Those who would have done this were prevented by force of arms. The only explanation of the facts as we know them is that angels rolled back the stone as the Scripture says, and Christ came forth alive from the tomb.
11. Systematic efforts to debunk the biblical testimony have resulted in the skeptics being converted to Christ because the attempt at discrediting the Bible only served to display its strength.
12. Millions of Christians from every nation of the world testify that they have come to know the risen Lord who forgives their sins, answers their prayers, and dwells in their hearts by faith.
