The fact that Jesus rose from the dead in time and space is an essential truth to historic Christianity. If there’s no such thing as “religious truth” and regular, everyday truth—if the fact that Jesus rose from the dead in time and space is no less true that the fact that you’re reading this post right now… it has to affect our entire lives. And the awesome thing is that you can look into this yourself.
Check out this great interview with all three Biola professors who will be speaking along with me at Reasonable Faith in an Uncertain World (Rocklin, CA): J.P. Moreland, Craig Hazen, and Clay Jones. See how they answer these questions on the importance of the Resurrection:
- If Jesus was bodily raised from the dead, what difference does that make for Christianity as a knowledge tradition?
- So, what do you find to be the top compelling reasons to show that Jesus was bodily raised from the dead?
- How is hope related to faith?
- How and why is the resurrection of Jesus unique compared to other “divine power” claims in other world religions?
- and more!
Here’s the article: Resurrection Hope in a Hopeless World. Happy Easter!
