When one surveys the claims of Jesus Christ, it is easy to see that He made history's most radical claims, even claiming to be God. Of course, anyone can say he is God. And Jesus knew that. So Jesus backed up His claims by living a sinless life, fulfilling hundreds of Old Testament prophecies, performing numerous miracles (e.g., healing the sick, opening the eyes of the blind), and ultimately raising Himself from the dead. Christianity rests on the resurrection. If Jesus did not rise from the dead, He was a false prophet, for He said that He would, and the disciples were liars because they said that He did. What evidence is there that Jesus really rose from the dead? Below are some helpful articles and resources that address this question.

|THE LOST TOMB OF JESUS: Have the Tomb and Bones of Jesus Been Unearthed? (DVD)
by Charlie Campbell
The Lost Tomb of Jesus, a two hour documentary that aired nation wide on the Discovery Channel, makes the startling claim that Jesus did not rise from the grave as the Bible says (e.g., Matthew 28:6) but that He died and was buried in a cave with His family, including His wife and child. The documentary, which claims to have DNA and statistical evidence in its favor, goes on to assert that the place where Jesus was buried has been discovered near Jerusalem. Could this be true? In this hour long presentation Charlie Campbell responds to the claims in the documentary and lays out compelling evidence that the Biblical account of the resurrection is actually true. This DVD contains many of the images that Charlie uses in his PowerPoint presentation. Click here to purchase.
