Was Jesus really raised from the dead? Did they find Jesus’ empty tomb? 'After Life?' video series #9
Was Jesus really raised from the dead? Did Jesus’s followers really find his empty tomb? When Jesus' first followers encountered him alive again after his death, could these encounters have been visions or mystical experiences? Against this, there is the evidence that his tomb was empty. His body really had gone. (And surely, if his body had still been in the tomb, the authorities would have produced it when the stories started to circulate that he had risen.)
But in recent years, it has been claimed that the story of the empty tomb was made up more than thirty years after the event, perhaps by the author of Mark's Gospel.
This video is part nine of the series 'After Life?' - the most up to date and convincing evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
With contributions by Professor William Lane Craig, Professor Gary Habermas, Professor Mike Licona, Amy Orr-Ewing and Professor Tom Wright.
