Incitatus, this one's for you bud
This link is to a 40 Meg, three hour presentation/discussion involving William Lane Craig, Bruce Winter and some other guy I've never heard of. The entire focus of this piece is the resurrection of Jesus.
I realize I have been reticent on this particular topic, mainly because I don't feel I have a firm enough understanding of all the factors in play. Hope you don't mind if I let some others speak who have been able to invest quite a bit more time into this topic than myself.
The points I've been picking out so far (I'm only half way through at the moment):
Modern scholarship agrees that:
- Jesus did in-fact exist
- Jesus was crucified
- His tomb was indeed found empty
- That the disciples did in-fact see something they believed to be the risen Christ
- That they were able to convince large numbers of people that Jesus bodily rose from the dead.
