I am not one who believes the Christian faith or, namely, the resurrection of Jesus Christ can be proved or disproved in the way that one can attest Isaac Newton’s laws of motion (physics). However, I do believe in the resurrection of Jesus Christ…and I believe there are credible reasons for such faith.
Here is what Richard B. Hays has to say about the resurrection:
“The character of the event itself hardly falls within ordinary categories of experience. Still, something extraordinary happened shortly after Jesus’ death that rallied the dispirited disciples and sent them out proclaiming to the world that Jesus had risen and had appeared to them. Reductive psychological explanations fail to do justice to the widespread testimony to this event within the original community and to the moral seriousness of the movement that resulted from it. The best explanation is to say that God did something beyond all power of human imagining by raising Jesus from the dead.” (The Moral Vision of the New Testament, p. 165-166)
With that in mind, here is something the Apostle Paul says… “I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the sharing of his sufferings by becoming like him in his death, if somehow I may attain the resurrection from the dead” (Phil 3.10-11, NRSV).
