When considering the evidence for Jesus' resurrection, we need to separate two issues. First, what are the historical facts that require an explanation? And, second, what is the best, most plausible, explanation for those facts?
One of the things that most stands out to me about the gospels is Jesus’ humility. A simple carpenter’s son, nothing flashy, serving the needy, spending time with those on the peripheries of society, yet the son of God, who created the Universe and performed miracles.
In the gospels we read many accounts of the way Jesus moulded his culture according the values of the Kingdom of heaven. He worked within and honoured certain systems, he spoke out against wrong behaviour and he demonstrated a new way of living – he lived it out himself.
