A Skeptic Disputes the Resurrection of Christ

Ralph Matthews is a former college instructor whose retirement days are consumed with writing mini-diatribes against the Christian religion. In point of fact, he has nothing new to contribute; his hackneyed criticisms are but a regurgitation of past infidel quibbles. On occasion, however, they do provide an opportunity to illustrate the superficiality of skepticism's arsenal. In a recent article, this ... read more »

Roman Catholic Professor Denies the Resurrection of Christ

Thomas H. West, a Roman Catholic by background, is Professor of Theology at the College of St. Catherine in St. Paul, Minnesota. The controversial teacher recently authored a book under the title, Jesus and the Quest for Meaning (Fortress Press, 2001).

Jesus Showed Himself Alive By Many Proofs

The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is the foundation upon which the Christian religion is built. It is just this simple.

Pass Over “The Passover Plot”

Many of the world's religions revolve around a person, and such persons are now entombed. These shrines are visited by interested followers to this day.

Resurrection: Literal or Merely Symbolic?

All four of the Gospel accounts affirm that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead (Mt. 28:6; Mk. 16:6; Lk. 24:6; Jn. 20:9). Later, the apostle Paul argues that the resurrection of Christ is the very foundation of the Christian's faith.

The Jesus Seminar – Part 1

Recently (June 26, 2000), ABC News presented a special two-hour television program titled, In Search of Jesus, with popular broadcaster Peter Jennings as host.
