The Resurrection of Jesus Christ: Infallible Proofs
"...When we start from God’s Word, there is absolutely no legitimate way to deny the angel’s words to the women who came to the tomb on that glorious morning: “"Why do you seek the living among the dead? He is not here but is risen!"” (Luke 24:5–6). The Bible repeatedly affirms the bodily Resurrection of Jesus, even stating that He demonstrated it “"by many infallible proofs"” (Acts 1:3). What are some of these infallible proofs? Are there any other good arguments consistent with this belief?..."
Evidence for the Resurrection
OVER 500 WITNESSES
Several very important factors arc often overlooked when considering Christ's post-resurrection appearances to individuals. The first is the large number of witnesses of Christ after that resurrection morning. One of the earliest records of Christ's appearing after the resurrection is by Paul. The apostle appealed to his audience's knowledge of the fact that Christ had been seen by more than 500 people at one time

"..You've been praised for making a "Case for Christ" based on our modern legal system--offering evidence and so forth. Yet some criticize attempts to investigate the resurrection--traditionally considered a matter of faith--in a more journalistic or legal way. What is your response to such critics?

Historical evidence of the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ
"...In addition to this, there is the letter dated between AD 73 and 3rd Century AD, written by Mara bar Sarapion, a stoic (of the Hellenistic philosophy) from Syria who was imprisoned by the Roman soldiers. In the letter, Sarapion refers to the murder of Jesus Christ who he describes as the Wise King by the Jews “For what benefit did the Athenians obtain by putting Socrates to death, seeing that they received as retribution for it famine and pestilence? Or the people of Samos by the burning of Pythagoras, seeing that in one hour the whole of their country was covered with sand? Or the Jews by the murder of their Wise King, seeing that from that very time their kingdom was driven away from them? For with justice did God grant a recompense to the wisdom of all three of them. For the Athenians died by famine; and the people of Samos were covered by the sea without remedy; and the Jews, brought to desolation and expelled from their kingdom, are driven away into every land” Mara bar Sarapion thus concluded that the Jews suffered from the Romans as a punishment for the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus. .."

"...There is also the statement by Julius Africanus which is dated AD 221 in which he states that the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ was associated with an earthquake and fearful darkness. Let me quote him ; “On the whole world there pressed a most fearful darkness; and the rocks were rent by an earthquake, and many places in Judea and other districts were thrown down” St. Matthew wrote that an earthquake occurred during the crucifixion of the Lord. He wrote this in The Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 27, “And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open”. Professor Jefferson Williams of Supersonic Geologicals and other professors from the German Research Center for Geosciences conducted an examination of earthquake activities in the Ein Gedi Spa adjacent to the Dead Sea, located 13 miles from Jerusalem. They studied the 4,000-year chronology of earthquake disturbances within the uppermost 19 feet of laminated sediment of the Dead Sea and used their findings in determination of the exact date of Jesus' crucifixion which they concluded the Lord Jesus was crucified on Friday April 3, 33 A.D. Their findings were published in the journal ‘International Geology Review’...."

Did Jesus ever exist?

Historical Textual Evidence for Tiberius Caesar’s Existence
Tiberius Caesar, the Roman emperor who reigned during Jesus’ ministry, has 10 authors who mention his existence within 150 years of his life. These include: Josephus, Tacitus, Suetonius, Seneca, Paterculus, Plutarch, Pliny the Elder, Strabo, Valerius Maximum, and Luke.2 If one removes Luke, since he is a New Testament source, there are 9 secular non-Christian sources. This means that there are just as many non-Christian sources for Jesus’ existence as there are for Tiberius Caesar’s! And, to compare, the total number of sources between Jesus and Tiberius Caesar are 42:10. Therefore, there are over four times as many sources for Jesus’ life and deeds than for Tiberius Caesar’s.

Is the Resurrection Historically Reliable?
The Nazareth Inscription is one of the most powerful pieces of extra-biblical evidence that the resurrection of Christ was being preached right from the beginnings of Christianity. It is a Greek inscription on a marble tablet measuring approximately 24 inches by 15 inches. The exact time and place of its discovery is not known. The text records an abridged decree by Emporer Claudius (AD 41-54), instituting the death penalty for robbing bodies from tombs, a very unusual act of theft and level of punishment for such an act. This inscription strongly supports the assertion that the belief in the resurrection of Christ was widely known almost immediately after His crucifixion.

“To the angel of the church in Ephesus write: ‘The words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand, who walks among the seven golden lampstands. “‘I know your works, your toil and your patient endurance, and how you cannot bear with those who are evil, but have tested those who call themselves apostles and are not, and found them to be false. I know you are enduring patiently and bearing up for my name's sake, and you have not grown weary. But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent, and do the works you did at first. If not, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you repent. ...
