The Christian faith is profoundly rational. The Cross answers our deepest moral and existential needs. The case for the resurrection of Jesus Christ depends on various well-supported facts: that Jesus’ followers believed that they had seen him alive again; that they believed he had been resurrected; and that his tomb was empty a few days after his death. Not one of these facts is supernatural in character and each can be established by normal historical methodology. The cumulative case for a faith based on the events of the first Easter is powerful and compelling. These articles explain why.
