Here are links to some of the past articles we have featured on this site on the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and the celebration of Easter:
-Resurrection of Christ: Wright On! Listen to this! New Testament scholar N.T. Wright is right on in this short video on the Resurrection (2:23)
-Did Jesus Really Rise from the Dead? Yes! If not, as Paul says (I Cor. 15:14) the entire Christian faith is in vain. Here’s a link to a great article on all of the facts concerning the resurrection of Jesus–a timely pursuit for the Easter season:
by William Lane Craig, professor of philosophy at Talbot School of Theology in La Mirada, California. This is the best and most concise article that I have found on the Resurrection of Jesus.
-Was Easter Really Borrowed From a Pagan Holiday? Here’s a good article by Anthony McRoy that contradicts the popular notion that the Christian celebration of Easter was borrowed from pagan sources:
McRoy provides historical evidence that the name ‘Easter’ was actually derived from the Old High German ‘eostarum’ which meant "dawn" and not from the name of a supposed pagan goddess.
Finally, here’s a link to our most popular article of all time during Easter week and one we traditionally post on Good Friday:
May you and yours be blessed this Easter season. *Top
