Extracts from this document...


HW 11/02/2012 Did Jesus Christ really resurrect from the dead. There are many points for Jesus Christ?s resurrection but there are also just as many against it. For example Mark was inspired by God, so it must be true, but also Mark was like any human and capable of making mistakes, as were his sources. This happens again when people argue God?s power overrides the laws of nature but all none believers would say that rising from the dead is impossible; it contradicts the laws of Nature and sounds like a zombie film. Then the people for Jesus? resurrection could say, well if the story was made up, its author would not have included the unlikely detail that women were witnesses. ...read more.


So as you can see the jumping from side to side is never ending. Another example is if the centurion would have not made that mistake; Jesus was dead. Jesus could not have moved from his physical ordeal. Perhaps Jesus was not dead but unconscious. The appearances could have been of a revived rather than a resurrected Jesus. But say the people for his resurrection, it is unlikely that his body was moved: the disciples were too afraid, and the Jews and Romans had no reason to move it. If they had, they would have used his body to discredit stories of the Resurrection. Still there is a reply; his body might not have been moved by his disciples who wished to honour it. ...read more.


But the disciples changed from being afraid into courageous preachers of the gospel. Something special must have happened. No say the opposition again; the resurrection appearances might have been hallucinations one reported ?sighting? sparking off another. But most of the Eleven died as martyrs - they would not have given their lives for what they knew was a lie. However the opposition say perhaps the Eleven became so involved in the lie they started to believe it or didn?t know how to get out of it without losing face. So as you can see it?s a never ending argument. There are balanced and fair arguments for both sides. Before reading all of these arguments I believed in the resurrection but now I can look at it from another point of view. I still believe though that the resurrection was real. ...read more.
