Did Jesus Rise From the Dead?


We all wonder what will happen to us after we die. When a loved one dies, we long to see him or her again after our turn comes. Will we have a glorious reunion with those we love or is death the end of all consciousness?

Jesus taught that life does not end after our bodies die. He made this startling claim: “I am the resurrection and the life. Those who believe in me, even though they die like everyone else, will live again.” According to the eyewitnesses closest to him, Jesus then demonstrated his power over death by rising from the dead after being crucified and buried for three days. It is this belief that has given hope to Christians for nearly 2000 years.

But some people have no hope of life after death. The atheistic philosopher Bertrand Russell wrote, “I believe that when I die I shall rot, and nothing of my own ego will survive.”[1] Russell obviously didn’t believe Jesus’ words.

Jesus’ followers wrote that he appeared alive to them after his crucifixion and burial. They claim not only to have seen him but also to have eaten with him, touched him, and spent 40 days with him.

So could this have been simply a story that grew over time, or is it based upon solid evidence? The answer to this question is foundational to Christianity. For if Jesus did rise from the dead, it would validate everything he said about himself, about the meaning of life, and about our destiny after death.

If Jesus did rise from the dead then he alone would have the answers to what life is about and what is facing us after we die. On the other hand, if the resurrection account of Jesus is not true, then Christianity would be founded upon a lie. Theologian R. C. Sproul puts it this way:

The claim of resurrection is vital to Christianity. If Christ has been raised from the dead by God, then He has the credentials and certification that no other religious leader possesses.[2]

All other religious leaders are dead, but, according to Christianity, Christ is alive.

Many skeptics have attempted to disprove the resurrection. Josh McDowell was one such skeptic who spent more than seven hundred hours researching the evidence for the resurrection. McDowell stated this regarding the importance of the resurrection:

I have come to the conclusion that the resurrection of Jesus Christ is one of the most wicked, vicious, heartless hoaxes ever foisted upon the minds of men, OR it is the most fantastic fact of history.[3] McDowell later wrote his classic work, The New Evidence That Demands A Verdict, documenting what he discovered.

So, is Jesus’ resurrection a fantastic fact or a vicious myth? To find out, we need to look at the evidence of history and draw our own conclusions. Let’s see what skeptics who investigated the resurrection discovered for themselves.

¿Se levantó Jesús de entre los muertos?

Haga clic aquí para descargar este artículo en formato PDFTodos se preguntan qué será de nosotrosdespués de nuestra muerte. Cuando muere un ser querido, nuestro anhelo es que él o ella de nuevo después de  nuestro turno.

¿Tendremosuna reunión gloriosa con los que amamos es la muerte o el final de toda la conciencia?

Jesús enseñó que la vida no termina después denuestro cuerpo muere.  Hizo esta afirmaciónsorprendente: “Yo soy la resurrección y la vida.Aquellos que creen en mí, aunque muera comotodo el mundo, volverán a vivir. “De acuerdo atestigos oculares más cercano a él, Jesús ledemostró su poder sobre la muerte al resucitar deentre los muertos después de haber sidocrucificado  y enterrado por tres días. Es esta creencia la que ha dado esperanza a los cristianos durante casi 2000 años.

El ateo Bertrand Russell escribió en 1925, “Yo creo que cuando yo muera me podriré, y nada de mi propio ego va a sobrevivir.”[1] Bueno, eso es bueno. Russell claramente cruzaba la línea de lo malhumorado, pero todos nosotros nos preguntamos, con quizás más optimismo, qué nos pasará cuando muramos.

Si la vida después de la muerte no es una opción, entonces Russell tiene razón; nuestros cuerpos se pudrirán y nada más de nosotros va a sobrevivir. Nada de conciencia. Nada de felicidad. Nada de esperanza. Y dejando a un lado varias décadas de existencialismo, lo que eso realmente significa es un mundo accidental sin un propósito final.

Lo que hace que Jesús sea único entre los líderes religiosos y entre los grandes líderes en general, es su relación con la muerte. Los líderes se han encontrado con todas formas de muertes prematuras-asesinatos, muerte auto-infligida o muerte accidental, antes de que el mundo estuviera listo para su ida. Pero no obstante la muerte los buscó y los encontró.  Jesús no es único en que sus enemigos lo mataron; lo que no tiene precedentes, si los evangelios han de ser creídos, es que él predijo como y cuando pasaría y se resigno a ello (en realidad lo eligió), declarando que la muerte no tiene poder sobre él.

Si Jesús resucitó de la muerte, entonces solo él tendría las respuestas sobre cuál es el sentido de la vida y qué nos espera después de la muerte. Por lo contrario, si el relato de la resurrección de Jesús no es cierto, entonces se hubiera fundado el cristianismo sobre la base de una mentira. El teólogo R.C. Sproul lo expresa así:

La afirmación de la resurrección es vital para el cristianismo. Si Cristo ha sido resucitado de la muerte por Dios, entonces él tiene las credenciales y la validación que ningún otro líder religioso posee.[2]

Todos los demás líderes religiosos han muerto, pero, según el cristianismo, Jesucristo está vivo.

Tan diferente y anormal es todo esto que una parte de nosotros nos gustaría rechazarlo como un mito. Pero ¿ha de ser la resurrección relegada a una historia de escuela dominical-o hay evidencias?

El investigador Josh McDowell dijo,

“Después de más de setecientas horas de estudiar este tema y minuciosamente investigar su fundamento, he llegado a la conclusión que la resurrección de Jesucristo es uno de los más malvados, mal intencionados, despiadados engaños jamás  impuestos en las mentes de los hombres, O es el más fantástico hecho de la historia.”[3]

Correcto, entonces ¿cuál es? Mantengamos nuestras mentes abiertas.

Evidence for Jesus

There are few who dispute that Jesus physically walked the Earth. Even secular historians largely agree on that point thanks to clear archaeological evidence, census documents and eyewitness accounts. Many other religions, while not recognizing the divinity of Christ, do acknowledge that for 33 years, he existed in human form. The more important question is, who is Jesus, and can we trust his claims?

Those outside of Christianity often state that while Jesus was a “good man,” or a “learned and wise teacher,” he is not God. Others dispute the accuracy of the Gospel. Jesus’ resurrection, which took place on the third day following his death, is our proof. Numerous witnesses who both loved and hated Jesus (including members of the Sanhedrin), acknowledge this fact. Without the resurrection, Jesus is not God, but a liar, and we would have no manner of atoning for our sins.

Did Jesus Rise From the Dead?

Atheist Bertrand Russell wrote in 1925, “I believe that when I die I shall rot, and nothing of my own ego will survive.”[1]  Well, that’s cheerful. Russell clearly bordered on the morose, but we’ve all wondered, with perhaps more optimism, what will happen to us when we die.  (read more)



…in pure logic, though Jesus or nor human have resurrected in proven fact…!
…it really does not matter…! i am not afraid of any God or Jesus…!
…if i can suffer more than this life in nerves and organic body, i will be darned!

…to suffer merely in soul and spirit, i will cope with that and try and take over the Universe with Satan and his demons! …presto…!!!
…because you cannot make worse hate to the God of the Bible, to be put forever in the torments of Hell…!

…ja ja jaaaa, ji ji jiiii…!!!…this is just from the top of me head…!

We behave because of an upbringing and personal beliefs of good morale and of emotional mind boundaries!
We behave because of the judiciary system!
We behave because we believe in living and letting live!
