*SWOON* (Podcast Episode 36)


The cornerstone of the Christian faith is the resurrection of Jesus. If he didn’t raise from the dead, “we are of all people most to be pitied” (1 Corinthians 15:9). And that’s because if Jesus died and stayed dead, then he was just like any other man. But if he really did raise from the dead, then he was and is everything he said he is.

So on this episode of the podcast, we want to answer this question: how can we really know that Jesus really rose from the dead?

On the face of it, it’s a pretty crazy claim. But when you look at the facts that every ancient historian (Christian or not) is willing to agree on, it actually makes the most sense of all the possibilities. And that’s what we explore in the episode.
