Making a Case for Jesus' Resurrection

Author, Christian Apologist and homicide detective J. Warner Wallace was a conscientious and vocal atheist till he was 35 years of age. He never thought that he would be where he is now. Many of his Christian co-workers who are also police detectives didn't see a need to take an investigative approach towards the Christian faith and beliefs.

Wallace then took it upon himself to investigate who Jesus was and the more he investigated, the more he believed the claims about Jesus. However, it was only when he looked into what the gospels said about him - about how he needs a savior, that he started putting his trust in Jesus instead of just believing about Jesus.

Here's the template for eyewitnesses' courtroom examination if you are looking to do your own research about Jesus Christ:

  1. Were the witnesses really at the scene in question?

  2. Could their statements be corroborated in some way - like with other witnesses' accounts or other evidences?

  3. Have the accounts been accurate over time? Has it been changed?

  4. Do they have a bias or a motive that might push them to lie in their statement?

Wallace applied all these methods and process in his investigation of Jesus. He had to ask himself, if Jesus really rose from the dead, then what should he do with it? That is the game-changing question.

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
