Was the Resurrection a Hoax?
The crux of Christianity is the resurrection of Jesus. Without it, Jesus was little more than another do-gooding philosopher. At best, a non-resurrected Jesus puts Jesus on the same level as the Buddah, Mohamed, or Joseph Smith. On the other hand, if the resurrection is for real, that makes Jesus unique amongst all the religions. But let’s be honest, the notion of a man being tortured, executed, entombed, and then coming back to life after three days seems more like a fiction than a reality. And this is what Christianity is based on? Over one billion people say “Yes.” But have they been deluded by a hoax? We’ll talk about that on Sunday!
