Different assumptions about the existence of God have different implications concerning the resurrection.
As Richard Swinburne has pointed out, a complete case for the resurrection must be a three-legged stool, resting upon general background evidence, prior historical evidence, and posterior historical evidence.
The logic of the resurrection apologetic is summarized in an argument diagram.
In “Why Resurrect Jesus?” Theodore Drange is looking in the right direction, asking the right questions, and taking the right approach to the resurrection of Jesus.
Drange shows that the resurrection of Jesus is neither a necessary condition nor a sufficient condition for the claim that Jesus is the divine Son of God. I suggest that (JRD) is logically related to (JSG) as a premise of a key argument for (JSG).
There is no reasonable or plausible way for Christian apologists to provide solid evidence about the motivations and purposes of God concerning human beings. If I am correct about this, then there is no way for Christian apologists to show that “God raised Jesus from the dead.”
