Do dead people rise? Did Jesus rise from death? And why does it matter?
In this lecture, Christian philosopher Peter S. Williams guides us through the questions thinking people must address to make their mind up about the claim that Jesus rose from the dead. He explores the relevant historical evidence and helps us to think about how best to explain that evidence in the light of our background beliefs about God and miracles.
