Hvem var det som døde og sto opp gjen?

Historisk fakta viser at Jesus døde og sto opp fra graven. Det er vel dokumentert av øyevitner som levde på den tiden. Hvordan berger det deg?

Kan du vise til noen kilder på dette, annet enn Bibelen?

Det var over 500 øyevitner som så Jesus etter oppstandelsen. Noen av dem er vel dokumentert.
Det viktigste selv om det er overveldende med bevis er å spørre Gud selv : ) Her er noen på engelsk:


Josephus (AD 37-100)

Josephus was a Jewish historian born just a few years after Jesus died. His most celebrated passage, called the “Testimonium Flavianum” says:

“Now there was about this time Jesus, a wise man, if it be lawful to call him a man; for he was a doer of wonderful works, a teacher of such men as receive the truth with pleasure. He drew over to him both many of the Jews and many of the Gentiles. He was Christ. And when Pilate, at the suggestion of the principal men among us, had condemned him to the cross, those that loved him at the first did not forsake him; for he appeared to them alive again the third day, as the divine prophets had foretold these and ten thousand other wonderful things concerning him. And the tribe of Christians, so named from him, are not extinct at this day.


Paul of Tarsus. Even if we limit ourselves to the letters only affirmed by critical scholars,[7] we discover that Paul had been an extremely zealous Pharisee (Gal. 1:14; Phil. 3:5-6) and a violent persecutor of Christians (1 Cor. 15:9; Gal. 1:13; Phil. 3:6). Yet, he claimed that the risen Jesus appeared to him (1 Cor. 9:1; 15:8; Gal. 1:15-16), changing his life forever. At this moment, Paul became a proclaimer of Jesus’ message—not a persecutor of it (Gal. 1:16). He went from persecuting others to being persecuted himself.


The Jewish Explanation

The earliest attempt to provide an alternative explanation for the resurrection of Jesus did not deny that the tomb was empty.79 Instead, Jewish opponents claimed that the body had been stolen, thus admitting the fact of the empty tomb. But this explanation is untenable for the following reasons. (1) The tomb was closed with an enormous rock and sealed by the government, and there is no explanation for how the rock was moved while being guarded by armed Roman soldiers. (2) If the body had been stolen, a large ransom could have been offered to the thieves, and they could have been coerced to produce the body. Or if it had been taken by the disciples, then the torture and death they suffered should have been sufficient to return the body. (3) Even if the body was stolen, how are we to account for the fact that Jesus appeared to multiple crowds of people, proving that he was alive? In conclusion, the theft of the body is unlikely and still fails to account for it returning back to life.
