    I would never believe Jesus didn’t rise from the dead. In this case though I have to say what if he never rose from the dead. A few things that are hard to believe is that some people don’t actually believe he rose from the dead. I guess if it never happened none of us would be who we are right this moment. Without Jesus rising from the dead there would be way more people against God then we have now. I can understand if it’s someone who wasn’t taught about God but there are wools that say the y are Christian and don’t believe Jesus rose from the dead. Another thing is without Jesus rising from the dead we wouldn’t all have the strong faith we have today. We also wouldn’t have a close relationship with God if it weren’t for Jesus. Jesus is our savior who died on a cross for our sins. If he truly didn’t rise from the dead a lot of Christians would start to question God. Most of them would probably ask if Jesus is the son of God why wasn’t he immortal or risen from the dead. Well the answer is he did rise from the dead but it would be hard for some people to still believe God if Jesus didn’t rise from the dead.

    The two points that stood out to me the most were about how the church would have been built off of a foundation of lies and that if the resurrection was false then Jesus would be dead and of no help to anyone. These thoughts are scary because I was raised in the church and I have built my life around it, I have lost friends and spent quite a bit of time dedicating my life to my faith so if this is all lies then I have been giving my life to something meaningless. And if Jesus stayed dead and was of no use to us then I just lost one of my best friends. Jesus is there for me and takes care of me sort of like an older brother, He knows me and loves me and a lot of times I rely on Him. So the though of having to live my life without the church and without Jesus scares me beyond belief. The one that I am so grateful that isn’t false is that we have salvation and when we die we can live eternally with God.

    the points that stand out me the most I that If the resurrection was fake then everything we believe and we do is make our church would be build on stories and fairy tales. It means that Jesuses remain are somewhere in a tomb it is really scary to think this because that would mean that we are not saved and everything we have ever known would be fake. I am so thankful that it is not fake because I can’t image a world without our God we would be lost and we would have no direction. So I am grateful that we have God and that he is there so he can lead us where we need to be and so we can spend eternal life with him in heaven. We get two to church and feel at peace because we know he is there I really don’t even want to know what life would be like if it was fake.

    The 2 points that stand out to me most were 1. Jesus was mistaken or lied about his resurrection. I chose this because of the fact that all of Christianity is based on the resurrection of Jesus. And so if it didn’t happen, then all of Christianity would be false/a lie. And it would be even backed up even more by the fact that god cannot lie. Because if he couldn’t lie, and Jesus didn’t resurrect then there would be even more evidence against Christianity.

    2. all the disciples are liars about their claims to have seen him and been with him. It is extremely unlikely that 500 people told the same exact lie and would die for it. It goes beyond human nature to die for something that isn’t true. This is the best piece of evidence for the resurrection of Jesus. I would say that the first point is the one i am the most grateful that isn’t false. Because it is the core of Christianity itself.

    The two points that stood out to me the most were that something else must account for the empty tomb on Sunday morning (3) and Jesus is dead and cannot give help or assistance to anyone (5). If Jesus didn’t rise from the dead, something else must account for his empty tomb. That means that someone would have had to move the huge stone in front of Jesus’ tomb and take away his body and hide the body somewhere no one would find it. This sticks out to me because I can’t imagine anyone being able to move that stone without others discovering. That must take a while and not be a quiet process. Someone would have heard or been visiting Jesus when the people would have had to remove the stone. Another implication of someone removing Jesus’ body is that someone would have had to desecrate Jesus’ grave. I can’t imagine anyone who cared about Jesus would disrespect him in that way. The other point that stood out to me is that is Jesus’ resurrection is false, he is dead and can’t help anyone. This scares me so much. The idea that Jesus can’t hear my prayers and doesn’t respond to them is such a frightening idea. Jesus cares about us just as much as God does as they are the same entity. Jesus hears and answers our prayers just as God does. I know Jesus has already guided me so much and the implication that he hasn’t hurts me. I am the most grateful that Jesus can and does assist us. He is a big part of my life, all parts of it because our spiritual lives affect every other aspect of our lives.
