      The most logical conclusion is that Jesus did indeed rise from death. It is clearly a historical event, with overwhelming evidence by hundreds of witnesses. By Steve Byas. The first edition of the Book of Mormon featured two testimonials: one written by a group of three witnesses and another by a group of eight. Three witnesses (Oliver Cowdery, David Whitmer, and Martin Harris) declared an angel of God appeared to them and showed them the Book of Mormon plates and they heard the voice of the Lord pronounce that Joseph Smith’s translation had been .

      Jehovah’s Witnesses state that God’s true name is “Jehovah.” They say the term “God,” is merely a title, and that the real name for God is “Jehovah.” In fact they go so far as to say that unless one calls on the true name of God, “Jehovah,” one cannot be saved.(7).   The first problem we encounter when trying to discover more about the Historical Jesus is the lack of early sources. The earliest sources only reference the clearly fictional Christ of : Raphael Lataster.

      Also, the Father used John the Baptist to bear witness to Jesus (). The Father used Jesus’ works (miracles) which He gave Jesus to do to bear witness of Him (). The Father used the Scriptures to bear witness of Jesus (). Since all of these witnesses line up, the case for Jesus is solid: He is the Christ, the Son of God ().   The truth is that Jesus is not only documented in the eye-witness testimony compiled in the New Testament, but He is mentioned as a historical person by several non-Christian sources within years of His life. From those sources, we can learn 10 things about Jesus without even opening a .

Applying a Bayesian criterion propounded in his foundational book Proving History, Carrier methodically breaks down contemporary historiographical assumptions, and /5(66). Very likely the best book written in New Testament studies in is Jesus and the Eyewitnesses by Richard Bauckham.

In this magnum opus Bauckham argues persuasively that the Gospels reflect (named) eyewitness testimony. According to Bauckham, the ideal source in ancient Greco-Roman literature was not the dispassionate observer, but the n: Bart Ehrman's book How Jesus Became God is a case in point.

Writing as a historian, he questions many of the gospel remembrances of the events surrounding the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. His conclusion is that the gospels are not reliable, historical witnesses. But is this really the case. In a word, the book argues that the Gospels are books of oral history; in other words, that they are based on the direct accounts of specific, named eyewitnesses to the life and ministry of Jesus.

The hypothesis that Jesus never really existed has started to gain more credibility in the expert community.

Some now agree historicity agnosticism is warranted, including Arthur Droge (professor of early Christianity at UCSD), Kurt Noll (associate professor of religion at Brandon University), and Thomas Thompson (renowned professor of theology, emeritus, at the University of Copenhagen).

Historical theology has hitherto endeavoured to interpret tradition in the sense of its historical Jesus, and has lost its way in a labyrinth of difficulties, contradictions, and insoluble problems.

We raise the question whether the documents may not be better and more simply interpreted in the opposite sense, and whether there is any need at.

In his book, The Historical Figure of Jesus, E.P. Sanders stated: “Most of the first-century literature that survives was written by members of the very small elite class of the Roman Empire.

To them, Jesus (if they heard of him at all) was merely a troublesome rabble-rouser and magician in a small, backward part of the world” (, p.

Misunderstandings of historical method are rife in Francis Beckwith's chapter in the book 'In Defense of Miracles,' and these are typical of all modern apologetics.

Today some claim that Jesus is just an idea, rather than a real historical figure, but there is a good deal of written evidence for his existence 2, years ago Christ alive Robert Powell as Author: Dr Simon Gathercole. This book is not a very deep and insightfully constructed argument, I think.

Yet, it is an interesting read, because of the court-style execution. It examines the Biblical argument, or evidence, to see if it can be concluded as tampered-with evidence, or a skewed-account of what really took place, i.e. that Jesus never rose from the dead/5.
