The Logic of the Resurrection – Index

 

The Logic of the Resurrection – Part 1

Different assumptions about the existence of God have different implications concerning the resurrection.

The Logic of the Resurrection – Part 2

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 – Part 3

The logic of the resurrection apologetic is summarized in an argument diagram.

The Logic of the Resurrection – Part 4

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.

The Logic of the Resurrection – Part 5

In order to make a rational case for the resurrection of Jesus, one must establish God’s primary purpose(s) or motive(s) concerning humans.

The Logic of the Resurrection – Part 6

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).

The Logic of the Resurrection – Part 7

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.”
