The Argument from Miracles: A Cumulative Case for the Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth


  1. For every other alleged historical event we determine its historicity by examining contemporaneous, corroborating, independent testimony from two or more known sources along with any available archaeological evidence.

    The Resurrection of Jesus has no such supporting evidence. To believe that this supernatural event occurred, one must suspend belief in the laws of nature and in the rules of evidence to believe it.

    This alleged event can only be believed by faith.

    1. Hi Gary, there are contemporaneous, corroborating, independent testimony from two or more witnesses with the resurrection. I don’t have the time to explain that all to you. You can see Peter William’s teaching on it-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CbBVBUeHXZ4

      As far as miracles, your argument goes back to Hume. There were plenty of responses in his own day and there have been plenty written on it over the last century. See
      Hume’s Abject Failure The Argument Against Miracles by John Earman or In Defense of Miracles: A Comprehensive Case for God’s Action in History by R. Douglas Geivett, and Gary R. Habermas. Don’t have alot of time to go back and forth. That will be it.
