Stephen Hawking of Cambridge University-one of the most famous and influential scientists of our day called belief that heaven awaits us after death a “fairy story.” Here’s what Hawking said:
“I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail. There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.”
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to base my life on a fairytale. When I’m facing the biggest questions of life, I want more than wishful thinking or blind faith.
Even though I had been a Christ-follower for 10 years, I began to re-investigate the historical evidence for the resurrection of Jesus with a different lens.
I needed to know if Christianity was just a fairy tale for grown ups. A lot was at stake:
Is there hope for life after death?
Does God exist? And if so does he care about me?
Is there a solution to my brokenness, guilt, and shame?
At the end of the day, does my brief life really matter?
How can I face all of the pain, suffering, and tragedy around me?
If the resurrection did not happen, then my answers to these kinds of questions would have to be significantly changed. But if the resurrection did happen, then there are authoritative answers to life’s biggest questions.
When you examine the 1st century documents that were later collected and bound together in what we now call the New Testament you’ll discover that the resurrection is the central claim of Christianity.
Without it, everything else falls apart.
But did it really happen?
I invite you to join me as we Explore the Resurrection In this digital course you’ll not only learn why the resurrection of Jesus is the best explanation of the historical facts, but you’ll also understand how it affects you personally and then be ready to confidently and clearly share this evidence with others.
Don’t leave life’s ultimate question un-investigated.
