Jesus' Resurrection - Pt. 1: The Metaphor Theory

April 1, 2018 Speaker: Chris Francis Series: Jesus' Resurrection: Fact or Fiction and Why It Matters

We have this thing called Christianity that started in the 1st century in the Palestine area of the ancient world, then it spread and spread all over the place.

It had as its basic tenant that Jesus rose from the dead.

How did we get here? Is there evidence? Can we trust that evidence?

What does resurrection even mean? Is it just a metaphor for some kind of victory in this life? Or does it literally mean life after death? If so, does it simply mean life after death as a soul? Or life after death in a body?

It all started with an empty tomb.
