Thoughts on The Resurrection

Rich Weatherly:

My friend and author, Thomas Drinkard posted an article with compelling arguments for the Resurrection and Christianity; arguments well worth sharing. I hope you read and give it thoughtful consideration.

I’ve posted this before, but now—on Good Friday—it seems appropriate to think about the Resurrection deeply.

After the Resurrection, the Romans—as well as those in the Jewish hierarchy who opposed Jesus and his ministry—said that his disciples had stolen his body away from the tomb.  It came about when the chief priests bribed the soldiers who had guarded the tomb.

Matthew 28 tells the story:

1 After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

2 There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it.  3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow.  4 The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.
