Travel to Israel with Mart De Haan and hear from scholars and authorities in the field of New Testament studies as they explore Jesus’ claims and examine the evidence for his resurrection. In this 2-part DVD, you’ll see Jerusalem where Jesus was crucified and buried, and Bethany where, according to the Gospels, he was last seen on earth. Decide for yourself whether or not the resurrection of Jesus is the single most important event in history.

  4. [edit: How Did Easter Originally Happen?
    A Hypothesis

    by Thomas Sheehan]

    To judge from the Gospels, it would seem that the activities of the risen Jesus during the forty days after he died included: one breakfast; parts of two dinners; one brief meeting in a cemetery; two walks through the countryside; at least seven conversations (including two separate instructions on how to forgive sins and baptize converts) — all of this climaxing in his physical ascension into heaven from a small hill just outside Jerusalem. Impossible though the task is, if we were to try to synthesize the gospel stories into a consistent chronology of what Jesus did during those hectic six weeks between his resurrection from the dead and his ascension into heaven, the agenda would look something like the following chart. http://www.westarinstitute.org/Periodicals/4R_Articles/easter.html

    • Sheehan seem to be putting Simon Peter in a gnostic mentality , when that was not the case. Peter writes in an epistle ”we are not following fables , but are eye witnesses of his Majesty ”. in the ancient world to revive or resuscitate in the original coine greek is a different word than the word that evolves around a literal resurrection .

      If Christ had not been raised from the dead literally , and his followers were going around pissing everyone off by saying he did , the Roman authoritys and the Jewish authoritys could have easily debunked it by parading Jesus dead body thru the streets. and believe you me they would have done it . problem was , the body was gone , and the disciples did not have the guts or manpower to overcome the Romans to get the body . The crucifixion of Christ ”under Pontius Pilate ” was a fact as we read in Tacitus , the most accurate of all Roman historians . The Romans dealt with any kind of troublemakers . Jesus was well known and there were claims that he would rise again literally . they took the needed precautions to make sure he did not . so where is the body ?

      Frank Morrison wrote a book on this called ”Who moved the stone ?”
      Also , N.T. Wright ‘s definitive ”The resurrection of the Son of God ” covers every angle on the subject.

      the fact is ..is that no one has seen the body . so the burden of proof is not on the believers that proclaimed his resurrection , but on those who doubt it .
