    Evidence Evidence Presentation Transcript

    • Easter 2007 at Riverview Church
    • Sir Lionel Luckhoo, Guinness Book of World Records’ “Most Successful Attorney”
    • “I say unequivocally, that the evidence for the res- urrection of Jesus Christ is so overwhelming that it compels acceptance by proof which leaves absolutely no room for doubt.” >> Sir Lionel Luckhoo
    • If Christ has not been raised, then your faith is use- less, and you are still under condemnation for your sins. >> 1 Corinthians 15:17
    • Dr. Gary Habermas, The world’s leading expert on the Resurrection
    • Anthony Flew, The world’s leading philosophical atheist
    • “I simply had to go where the evidence leads.” >> Anthony Flew
    • “Every single shred of evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ is also evidence for my own eventual resurrection.” >> Dr. Gary Habermas
    • I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies. >> John 11:25
    • EVIDENCE THAT JESUS REALLY DIED:
    • EVIDENCE THAT JESUS REALLY DIED:
    • EVIDENCE THAT JESUS REALLY DIED: Then Pilate laid open Jesus’ back with a leaded whip. >> John 19:1
    • EVIDENCE THAT JESUS REALLY DIED: “There is no question that after this flogging Jesus was on the edge of death before he even got to the cross. In the flogging, Jesus was tied to a post – beaten at least thirty-nine times – with a whip that had many strands of leather, and on the end of each strand was attached sharp, jagged pieces of bone and balls of lead. As the thongs of the whip were brought down on Jesus bare back, shoulders and legs – the lead balls would cause deep bruises and contusions that were then broken open by later blows. The sheep bone could cut deeply into the back and in some areas the spine itself was exposed by the brutality of the beating. There was a great loss of blood.” >> Dr. Alexander Metherell
    • EVIDENCE THAT JESUS REALLY DIED: “Seven to nine inch nails were first driven through the wrists and feet – and the person was hoisted vertically on a cross. When a person dies from crucifixion, it is usually from asphyxiation. The weight of the body, arms and chest locks the person into an inhaled position. The only way to exhale, was to push up on the nails in the feet – scraping the back along the vertical beam.” >> Dr. Alexander Metherell
    • EVIDENCE THAT JESUS REALLY DIED: “Clearly, the weight of historical and medical evidence indicate that Jesus was dead before the wound to his side was inflicted.” >> Journal of the American Medical Association
    • EVIDENCE FOR THE RESURRECTION:
    • EVIDENCE FOR THE RESURRECTION: < the early written records >
    • EVIDENCE FOR THE RESURRECTION: < the early written records > I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me – that Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, as the Scriptures said. >> 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
    • EVIDENCE FOR THE RESURRECTION: < the early written records > William F. Albright, The world’s foremost Biblical archaeologist of his day
    • EVIDENCE FOR THE RESURRECTION: < the early written records > “We can already say emphatically that there is no longer any solid basis for dating any book of the New Testament after about A.D. 80 . . . ” >> William F. Albright
    • EVIDENCE FOR THE RESURRECTION: < the empty tomb >
    • EVIDENCE FOR THE RESURRECTION: < the empty tomb > James Emery White, President & Professor of Theology Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
    • EVIDENCE FOR THE RESURRECTION: < the empty tomb > “The tomb in question is hardly new, having been discovered in 1980 — twenty-seven years ago! The crypt in question contained ten ossuaries, none of which contained human remains . . . Six of them were inscribed with names . . . Here we go again.” >> James Emery White
    • EVIDENCE FOR THE RESURRECTION: < the empty tomb > Amos Kloner, Archaeologist who discovered the tomb in 1980
    • EVIDENCE FOR THE RESURRECTION: < the empty tomb > “For the last twenty-seven years this tomb, the ossuaries and all these names have been open for public dispute. No serious archaeologists have ever connected this to Christ and have categorically stated that this tomb has nothing to do with Jesus of Nazareth.” >> Amos Kloner
    • EVIDENCE FOR THE RESURRECTION: < the empty tomb > The women . . . went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. >> Luke 24:1-2
    • EVIDENCE FOR THE RESURRECTION: < the eyewitness testimonies > He was seen by Peter and then by the twelve apostles. After that, he was seen by more than 500 followers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died by now. Then he was seen by James and later all the apostles. Last of all, I saw him . . . >> 1 Corinthians 15:5-8
    • EVIDENCE FOR THE RESURRECTION: < The beginning of a 2,000 year-long, worldwide movement >
    • EVIDENCE FOR THE RESURRECTION: < The beginning of a 2,000 year-long, worldwide movement > Then Peter stood up . . . raised his voice and addressed the crowd . . . “God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact.” >> Acts 2:14,32
    • He was despised and rejected—a man of sorrows, acquainted with bitterest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way when he went by. He was despised, and we did not care. Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God for his own sins! But he was wounded and crushed for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace. He was whipped, and we were healed! All of us have strayed away like sheep. We have left God's paths to follow our own. Yet the LORD laid on him the guilt and sins of us all. e had done no wrong, and he never deceived anyone.
    • Yet the LORD laid on him the guilt and sins of us all. He had done no wrong, and he never deceived anyone. But he was buried like a criminal; he was put in a rich man’s grave. But it was the LORD’s good plan to crush him and fill him with grief. Yet when his life is made an offering for sin, he will have a multitude of children, many heirs. He will enjoy a long life, and the LORD's plan will prosper in his hands. When he sees all that is accomplished by his anguish, he will be satisfied. >> Isaiah 53:3-11
    • For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. >> John 3:16
