The Third Kind of Supporting Evidence
The evidence that gets it’s facts from eye witness testimony.
But first, I want to mention …
3 important reason that we should be familiar with the supporting evidence for the resurrection:
1. We can help others to look at Christ differently. Most people who don’t take the teachings of Christ seriously are not familiar with the supporting evidence for the resurrection. When we introduce the evidence to some of these people, they may begin to consider that Jesus really is the Son of God.
2. We need to be ready to respond to opposing views. If we begin having a conversation with others about the validity of the resurrection, we should be familiar with the supporting evidence. Otherwise, when we can’t respond to opposing views we just end up encouraging more doubt about the fact that Jesus rose from the dead.
3. We gain confidence to talk with others about Christianity. The more familiar we are with the evidence for the resurrection, the more confident we feel about engaging in a conversation with others about it.
