Lee Strobel, the atheist-turned-Christian author behind the The Case for Christ book and movie, has noted that Easter this year falls on April’s Fools Day, but said there are four main reasons why people can believe that Jesus Christ did indeed rise from the dead.
“When I was an atheist and legal editor of The Chicago Tribune, I would have smirked at the fact that Easter this year falls on April Fools’ Day. Because back then, I thought that anyone would have to be a fool to believe that Jesus literally rose from the dead,” Strobel admitted in a video uploaded on Vimeo last week.
Strobel, whose faith journey and two-year investigation into the evidence behind the resurrection is featured in The Case for Christ, is coming out with a new book at the end of March titled, The Case for Miracles: A Journalist Investigates Evidence for the Supernatural.
The author touched upon some of his findings in his latest book, by presenting four important pieces of evidence surrounding Christ’s resurrection.
“I found that there is no dispute among scholars that Jesus was dead after being crucified,” he began.
Next, he pointed to early reports of the resurrection.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
