Christians: Jesus’ disciples could have been lying. Stop using the resurrection as an argument.

denis

This post is just going to be me repeating some points I’ve made before, but I’m writing it because I don’t think anyone (myself included) has made them loudly enough yet.

The Craig’s last major argument for the existence of God is his claim that the resurrection of Jesus can be shown to have happened using standard historical methods.
