There is one way to completely destroy Christianity: Produce the body of Jesus Christ. Without the resurrection of Jesus, Christianity crumbles into nothing. The Apostle Paul admitted as much when he said, “and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are of all men most to be pitied. ” (1 Corinthians 15:17–19)

This being the case, it stands to reason that the enemies of God work overtime to try and refute or cast doubt upon the resurrection of Christ. This series takes an in-depth look at the resurrection and examines why Jesus' bodily resurrection is so critical, dives into the trials, murder, and burial of Jesus, conducts a reconcilation of the Easter account in all the Gospels, provides an apologetic defense of the resurrection, and finally, looks at the various victories that the resurrection of Christ accomplished.

Before His crucifixion, Jesus endured two different unlawful and unjust trials. The first was His religious trial that was carried out by the religious leaders of His day. This presentation takes an in-depth look at Jesus' religious trial.

Before His crucifixion, Jesus endured two different unlawful and unjust trials. The first was His religious trial that was carried out by the religious leaders of His day. His second was before the Roman political court. This presentation takes an in-depth look at Jesus' political trial as well as applications for us today.

Why is the bodily resurrection of Jesus so important? Why does Christianity rise or fall on truth of the resurrection?  What are the consequences of the resurrection not being true? All these questions and more are examined in this presentation.  

The death of God's Son was predetermined from the very foundation of the world, and was prophesied for hundreds of years before it actually occurred. This presentation performs a detailed examination into Christ's crucifixion, looks at the details of the prophecies that foretold the event, and presents applications for us today.

The death of God's Son was predetermined from the very foundation of the world, and was prophesied for hundreds of years before it actually occurred. This presentation is part two of a detailed examination into Christ's crucifixion, and looks at the details of the prophecies that foretold the event, with applications for us today.

Emil Brunner, a Swiss theologian, has said of the 4 Easter accounts in the Gospels: "The sources contradict one another, and only a ‘harmonizing’ process which is not too much concerned about truth, could patch up a fairly connected account of the events". Is this the case? Do the Gospel descriptions of Christ's resurrection contradict each other? This presentation argues no, and presents a logical reconcilation of the various Easter accounts to show no contradictions exist and that the Bible is accurate in what it states. 

Whether Christian or secular, believer or atheist, every scholarly person who diligently studies the account of Christ's resurrection agrees upon several facts that are undeniable: (1) Jesus was murdered and buried; (2) Three days later, His body went missing; (3) There were appearances of Jesus over a period of 40 days to various people; (4) These appearances transformed His disciples and various skeptics into believers who went to their death for the testimony that Jesus was resurrected. This presentation looks at these facts and other details to determine the best explanation for what actually happened.

This presentation highlights all of these and celebrates what Christ has accomplished.
