JESUS - the carpenter from nazareth

 

Christianity is centered on a historical event - a public execution in an ancient Roman province during the reign of Tiberius. The first Christians claimed to have been witnesses to an extraordinary event - their executed master, killed for blasphemy, had appeared to them alive. Many of them would pay for this claim with their lives. 

All of Christian faith rests on the resurrection - an event that is said to have taken place at a particular moment and place in history. The Gospels are ancient written sources that can be examined like other written sources from their time. The founding documents of Christianity have shown to abound with reliable material on first century Palestine and eyewitness accounts on the events surrounding the claimed resurrection. Below are links to presentations by serious scholars examining the Gospels as historical sources. And even though the resurrection itself can never be proven, all the available evidence supports the belief in this extraordinary event. 

 

Where's the evidence?

"Even the most critical historian can confidently assert that a Jew named Jesus worked as a teacher and wonder-worker in Palestine during the reign of Tiberius, was executed by crucifixion under the prefect Pontius Pilate and continued to have followers after his death."
