5 Conspiracy Theories 1.Disciples stole body

6 Conspiracy Theories 1.Disciples stole body Matthew 27:57 & ff (p.693)

7 Conspiracy Theories 1.Disciples stole body "It is not hard to imagine the sight which greeted the eyes of the apostles when they reached the tomb: the stone slab, the collapsed graveclothes, the shell of the head-cloth and the gap between the two. No wonder they ‘saw and believed.’ A glance at these graveclothes proved the reality, and indicated the nature, of the resurrection. They had been neither touched nor folded nor manipulated by any human being. They were like a discarded chrysalis from which the butterfly has emerged" —John Stott, Basic Christianity

11 Established Fact 1.Archeological evidence

12 Established Fact 1.Archeological evidence “Evidence that the people in Jesus’ time believed in the resurrection is found on caskets of bones discovered in a sealed tomb outside Jerusalem in Coins minted in about A.D. 50 were found inside the caskets, dating the burial within about 20 years of Jesus’ crucifixion. Markings are clearly legible, including several statements reflecting knowledge of Jesus’ ability to overcome death. Examples of writings (in Greek) of hope for deceased loved ones include: “Jesus, Help” and “Jesus, Let Him Arise.” The caskets also contain several crosses, clearly marked in charcoal. This is powerful evidence that early Christians believed in Jesus’ ability to triumph over death. It also ties the idea of victory over death to the cross.” —Ralph Muncaster, What Is the Proof for the Resurrection

13 Established Fact 1.Archeological evidence 2.Secular History

14 Established Fact 1.Archeological evidence 2.Secular History “Now there was about this time Jesus, a wise man, if it be lawful to call him a man; for he was a doer of wonderful works, a teacher of such men as receive the truth with pleasure. He drew over to him both many of the Jews and many of the Gentiles. He was [the] Christ. And when Pilate, at the suggestion of the principal men amongst us, had condemned him to the cross, those that loved him at the first did not forsake him; for he appeared to them alive again the third day; as the divine prophets had foretold these and ten thousand other wonderful things concerning him. And the tribe of Christians, so named from him, are not extinct at this day." —Flavius Josephus (Antiquities, XVIII, III)
