Your belief that "Jesus did not die" is irrational in light of the overwhelming evidence:

  • The Old Testament prophets testified to Jesus' death and burial.

  • Jesus testified to His death on multiple occasions.

  • We have eyewitnesses to the death of Jesus on the cross.

  • We know of people who participated in the burial of Jesus' dead body.

  • Even non-Christian sources wrote that Jesus died (e.g. Josephus and Tacitus).

The law/Torah requires that a matter be established by two or three witnesses (Deuteronomy 17:6-7). The testimonies of Jesus, Old Testament prophets, Jesus' followers, non-Christian historians, etc. is true, legal and believable compared to the testimony of Muhammad (or the Qur'an), which was written nearly six hundred years after the event.



Is the Qur'an the Word of God?
