Maybe Jesus was never actually killed? Or maybe his body was stolen by his followers? What if the resurrection of Jesus was just one big conspiracy theory? Charlie Kirk peppered Frank with this list of questions during a recent conversation that took place at the Turning Point USA Faith Freedom Night in America event.

    The irony is that non believers and atheists do not possess any explicit sources , literature and materials other than the 4 gospels to discuss and debate the life ,teachings ,death and ressurection of Jesus!
    Sarcastic as well they use the proofs and testimonies of eyewitnesses to disprove the scripture for which Jesus and His 11 Apostles shed their blood unto death !!!

    Yes, people simply need to do their homework, and search these matters out honestly. We have hundreds of years of Old Testament prophecies pointing to Jesus Christ, and Luke wrote in the 1st part of the Book of Acts, how He showed Himself Alive to His Disciples with "infallible proofs," so actually, The Resurrection is central to the Christian Faith, without that as Paul the Apostle pointed out in 1 Corinthians 15, we would be "of 'all' men, most miserable."

    Great points. I'd also add, it's quite silly when Atheists claim that Christians are biased, "of course they'll say Jesus rose from the dead". The Apostles were eye witnesses of Jesus' life, death and resurrection. To NOT believe would be to see evidence and still deny it. To see him on the cross, to carry His body, to lay it in the tomb, to then see Him alive again, to see Him ascend to Heaven.

    Atheists constantly accuse Christians of believing devoid of evidence. It's not true. We do have the evidence.
    It's Atheists, actually, who constantly deny truth despite the evidence. That's what they expect from the Apostles.

    They want them to see Christ, live with Christ, witness everything and still deny all.

    It has been said of Jesus that "his body rose from the dead." But this just an absurdity conjured up by materialistic mindsets – which were at a loss to satisfactorily explain the death of Jesus as a felon on a cross!

    What need would Jesus have of an materialistic body to continue existence in the afterlife?

    How could such a ridiculous myth persist even into the 21st century? It has been a measure of the lack of understanding of "Christians" that they have blindly accepted such a dogma to this very time.

    The truth is: the disciples of Jesus did not know that Jesus had secretly arranged with Joseph of Aremathea to take his (Jesus') body to his (Joseph's) own unused tomb after his (Jesus') death – where he (Joseph) would anoint Jesus' body according to custom before the sun set. Then – when darkness had fallen and the Sabbath was being observed by everyone in Jerusalem – assisted by two mounted trustworthy servants – he (Joseph) would take Jesus' body secretly during the night – and by out of sight tracks during the day – to a mountain side outside Nazareth – in Galilee. There – further assisted by Jesus' family – if he (Joseph) followed Jesus' directions – he (Joseph) would find a small – hidden cave which had given Jesus shelter from storms and a refuge from people when Jesus was young – unhappy and rebellious – and at odds with the world. Joseph promised to find the cave from a map Jesus had given Joseph and to leave Jesus' body there after further embalming. Joseph would build up the small entrance to thoroughly block it from intruders. There – Jesus' body has rested – free from molestation.

    No one can prove most events in the Bible except God, but we can obey what the Word of God tells us to do.

    Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day He visits us. -1 Peter 2: 12

    The entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: β€œLove your neighbor as yourself.” -Galatians 5: 14

    Love them, by telling them the truth for their benefit, then pray for them.

    First of all, we don't know who wrote the gospels, and if they were written by the traditional evangelists, we don't know if they were martyred. If you believe John the evangelist is the same as John of Patmos, then he died of old age on an island that is a holiday resort nowadays.
    Also, they would not have known whether they would be martyred or not when they wrote down their stories, so Dr. Turek's humorous anecdote about what Justice Scalia allegedly wrote does not apply anyway.

    Dr. Turek's final point about why Jewish people would make up stories that amounted to new Jewish sect, is silly. That is like asking why a good Christian boy like Joseph Smith would make up Mormonism.

    I have been debating people about morality. I presented Dr Turek’s argument, and they said that it IS all subjective. There’s no morality, only biases. Opposing goals. How do I respond?

    Imagine making up a story and then dying for that false belief? Yeahhh doesn’t make sense to me!! If they made it up and it was false then why were they all dying for it? none ever hesitated and reconsidered or spoke out that it was all a lie and a prank! Literally 11 disciples died on that belief in the most horrible way. Beheading, stoned, crucified upside down etc… but yet they all died for what they have witnessed. Antichrist will say otherwise

    First Jesus crucified, then Stephen stoned to death, so the surviving disciples thought spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ would be a wonderful path to riches and long life? No – they did this because they knew for a FACT the resurrected Jesus was the Living God and He gave them a commission to deliver the Gospel to the world – no matter what.

    All of this assumes that what happened in reality is indeed what happened in the biblical texts.

    Imagine making up a conspiracy that would get you put on the Most Wanted list and hunted and then executed…
    Who would willingly follow such a conspiracy if they knew the events were false?

    History has lots of examples, tens of thousands, of people who willingly died for what they believed to be true. Many of them certainly hoped their martyrdom would inspire others to believe the same truth.
    In all history, there are no examples, NONE, of anyone dying for what they knew was a lie. And if you think the disciples hoped others would follow and believe the same lie, then the disciples would have had to be insane or evil deceivers.
    To assert any other than the resurrection was true stretches incredulity beyond the breaking point.
    Still looking for an excuse to deny the resurrection? Jesus told us if we do not believe it's not because of legitimate doubts, but because our deeds are evil and believing requires we confess our sins, our sinful nature, our inability to stop sinning, and His grace alone.
    John 3:16,19-20.
    Wise men still seek Him.
