The Resurrection of Jesus Christ

The Resurrection of Jesus Christ – Part 1
By: Dr. John Ankerberg, Dr. John Weldon

The resurrection of Christ is central to either establishing or disproving the Christian religion. Years ago, the great rationalist Dr. Guignebert, professor of History of Christianity at the Sorbonne and honorary associate of the Rationalist Press Association of Great Britain, repudiated the idea of Christ’s resurrection, along with all miracles. Nevertheless, he stated, “There would have been no Christianity if the belief in the resurrection had not been founded and systematized.” In other words, the resurrection is vital because upon the resurrection of Christ the entirety of Christianity and its claim to truth either stands or falls.

The Oxford American Dictionary defines a witness as “a person who gives evidence in court” or “a person who is present at an event in order to testify to the fact that it took place.” According to this, a witness is not giving hearsay; he is giving “something that serves as evidence.” It is not opinion or conjecture or anything less than evidence personally and carefully attested to by one who saw it.

Jesus’ disciples were initially skeptics. But the resurrection appearances were of such a convincing character that the disciples became transformed men who proceeded to literally transform the world.

Would the evidence for the resurrection stand cross examination in a modern court of law? In Acts 1:3, the historian Luke tells us that Jesus Christ was resurrected from the dead by “many infallible proofs.” The Greek phrase used here is an expression which is defined in the lexicons as “decisive proof” and indicates the strongest type of legal evidence.

Dr. John Weldon (born February 6, 1948) went to be with the Lord on August 30, 2014 following a long-time battle with cancer. John served for more than 20 years as a researcher for The John Ankerberg Show. During his tenure, he authored or coauthored more than 100 books, including the best-selling Facts On Series of books that has sold more than 2.5 million copies in 16 languages. His final book, published in July 2014 with Harvest House Publishers (coauthored with John Ankerberg), is especially fitting. How to Know You’re Going to Heaven offers a biblical and personal look at the way God has provided salvation through Jesus Christ (Acts 4:12) and the confidence the believer can have of eternity with Him in heaven (1 John 5:13). John’s life and work have touched countless others seeking to grow spiritually and better understand the Bible. His friends describe him as genuine, humble, and passionate to share the hope of eternal life with everyone he met. His work will continue through his many books, his online writings at The John Ankerberg Show website (, as well as through the many people John has personally influenced through his ministry.
