I was talking to a Sikh woman. She asked me about the resurrection. So, as I was explaining the historical evidence, an atheist man came up and began interjecting his perspective. I told the woman to find a historian from any university around the world, like Stanford, Berkeley, Cambridge, Oxford, Johns Hopkins, Amherst, etc., and use the historian’s criteria for determining what is historically reliable. Then apply those same standards in the same way to the resurrection of Jesus and see what happens. The atheist man then declared, “You would get the wrong answer.” Isn’t it interesting that, when investigating the historicity of the resurrection, an atheist does not want us to employ the tried and tested methods used by the academic world for all other historical studies?
