Grave thieves?

Continuing his investigation, Morison began to examine the motives of Jesus' followers. Perhaps the supposed resurrection was nothing more than a stolen body. But if that were true, how are the various appearances of a resurrected Jesus justified? Historian Paul Johnson, in the History of the Jews, wrote: “What mattered was not the circumstances of His death, but the fact that the resurrection was widely and obstinately believed, by an ever-growing circle of people.”

The tomb was really empty. But it could not have been just the absence of a body that revived Jesus' followers (especially if they had stolen it themselves). Something extraordinary must have happened, so that Jesus' disciples would stop whining and hiding, and begin to proclaim without fear that they had seen Him alive.

The witnesses' report stated that Jesus had suddenly appeared to his followers physically, initially to women. Morison wondered why a conspirator would make women a central point in this plot. In the first century, women had virtually no rights, personality or status. Morison reasoned that, if a conspiracy wanted to succeed, its authors would have chosen men and not women, as the first to see Jesus alive. Furthermore, we hear that women were the first to touch Him, to speak to Him and to find the tomb empty.

Later, according to eyewitnesses, all the disciples saw Jesus on more than ten separate occasions. They wrote that Este showed him his hands and feet, and told them to touch Him. He allegedly ate with them and then appeared to over 500 people on one occasion.

John Warwick Montgomery, a law scholar, declared: “In AD 56 [the apostle Paul wrote that more than 500 people saw the risen Jesus, and that most of them still lived at that time (1 Corinthians 15: 6 onwards). It goes beyond the limits of common sense that primitive Christians could have made such a story and then preached it among those who would easily refute it, simply staging the body of Jesus. ”

Bible scholars like Geisler and Turek agree. “If the resurrection did not happen, why would the Apostle Paul give us such a long list of alleged witnesses? He would lose all credibility he had with his Corinthian readers by lying so blatantly. ”

Peter explained to a crowd in Caesarea why he and the other disciples were so convinced that Jesus was alive.

And we are witnesses to all the things he did, both in the land of Judea and in Jerusalem; which they killed by hanging it on a tree. God raised him up on the third day ... we, who ate and drank with him, after he rose the dead. (Acts 10: 39-41)

British Bible scholar Michael Green commented: “Jesus' apparitions are as authentic as any event in antiquity. … There is no reasonable doubt that they occurred. ”
