Where does Life’s Compass Point? Jesus, You, and the Essentials of Christianity
Episode 16: What is the Evidence for the Resurrection? (part 3)
Imagine that you get lost way out in the forest and your only hope of getting out alive is to follow direction from a magnetic compass. But instead of the compass pointing to magnetic north, the compass always points to you. How helpful would that compass be? Not at all!
Why then do so many of us live as if life’s compass points to us? Do we get to decide what life’s purpose is and how to live it? Or, is there an objective purpose to life and a right way to live it?
Join Dr. Frank Turek as he highlights God’s purposes for our lives and the essentials truths of Christianity. In this 17-part series filmed for TV, you’ll get practical answers to these and other important questions:
- What’s wrong with you and the world?
- What is the Bible all About?
- How do we interpret the Bible?
- What is God like?
- Who is Jesus?
- What is the Trinity?
- Why is the Resurrection so important?
- What is God’s solution to our brokenness?
- What is faith and why does God want it?
- How should we live then?
Outside of the creation of the universe, the greatest miracle in the Bible is the Resurrection. It is the center of Christianity, and our faith would be in vain without it. If the Resurrection of Christ really occurred, then game over— Christianity is true! But did it really happen? Frank addresses the issue head on by asking: Is the Resurrection possible? What is the evidence for it? Aren’t other explanations more plausible than a Resurrection? If it really happened, what does it mean? This third of three evidence episodes presents the "minimal facts” about the fate of Jesus that most scholars admit, and it also begins to present the significance of the Resurrection to our lives.
