Evidence That Proves the Resurrection of Jesus
By Frank Gil, Mayfair Road Campus Pastor
There is nothing more important to Christians than the resurrection of Jesus!
The resurrection is the climax of the New Testament, the Good News of The Gospel, and proof that Jesus is the Christ and the Son of God. Through the resurrection, we believe that life triumphed over death, good defeated evil and hope can outlast despair.
Rest assured, there is solid evidence for your faith in Christ. There are facts that point to the resurrection of Jesus and eyewitness testimony that backs it up.
If you or someone you know is asking questions about it—here’s a list we put together of resources that show hard evidence for the resurrection of Jesus. If you have any additional questions, please reach out to your campus pastor.
