Robin Schumacher on No Matter How You Feel About It, the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is a Miracle

Whether you’re a Christian or atheist, if asked to explain the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, your answer will always involve a miracle. Let me explain why.

First, long gone are the days when an educated person could get away with saying that Jesus was a mythical invention vs. historical person. The scholarly works of both non-Christians and believers alike put the final nail in that coffin long ago with a good summation coming from Princeton professor Bruce Metzger: “Today no competent scholar denies the historicity of Jesus.”[1]

Second, there is also agreement in the academic camps on the key historical facts of Jesus’ resurrection event, which are:

  • Jesus was crucified and buried.
  • Three days later, His body was reported missing by a group of His women followers and remains missing to this day.
  • There were reported appearances of Jesus over the course of 40 or so days to both believers and unbelievers.
  • People were transformed from these appearance events and publicly proclaimed Christ’s resurrection, with many being martyred for that proclamation.
