The Resurrection of Christ

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the cornerstone of the Christian faith. Without the resurrection of Jesus, there is no Christianity, no hope for the believer, and no hope for our world. If the resurrection is true, then Jesus is everything that He claimed to be. However, if He did not come back from the dead as the Bible says He did, then the Christian faith is a farce and must be abandoned. In this book we will look at the events surrounding the resurrection, the evidence for the fact that Jesus came back from the dead, and certain theories that attempt to explain it away.

More From Jesus Christ

Did Jesus Exist?
Don Stewart    This book looks at the question of the existence of Jesus Christ. Did Jesus exist? Was He a genuine historical figure? What records do we have that testify to His existence? Why should we trust what they say? What historical facts can we know for certain about the life and ministry of Jesus?
The Life and Ministry of Jesus Christ
Don Stewart    Part 1: The World Into Which Jesus Came - What The World Was Like In The First Century A.D.? Part 2: The Life And Ministry Of Jesus. Part 3: The Betrayal, Trial, And Death Of Jesus -- The Last Days Of Christ
What Everyone Needs to Know About Jesus
Don Stewart    In this book, we will examine the identity of Jesus Christ. As the most important figure in history, it is crucial that we have a correct understanding of His identity. The Bible teaches that Jesus Christ is God the Son—Second Person of the Holy Trinity. He has eternally existed with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit.
The Case for Christianity
Don Stewart    Is the Christian faith true? Is it based upon fact, or upon blind faith? In this book we present an extensive “case for Christianity.” We look at such things as the trustworthiness of the New Testament, its historical accuracy and the claims it makes about Jesus. Next we look at our options about the Person of Jesus Christ, concluding that He is either Lord of all or not Lord at all. From there, we provide the evidence that He is the One whom He claimed to be. This includes miracles, fulfilled prophecy, and His resurrection from the dead. Finally, we look at the way Jesus viewed the Old Testament as well as the soon to be written New Testament. The verdict will be clear: the case for Christianity is proved beyond a “reasonable doubt.”
Answering Accusations About Jesus
In this book, we will consider some of the views about Jesus and His ministry that are contrary to the teaching of the New Testament. It is important that we are familiar with these particular perspectives. While not all of them have been taken seriously by scholars, they have some received popularity in the general public and consequently, must be addressed.
