Imagine the suffering you would feel if one of your own relatives discredited you or didn’t take you seriously. This is what Jesus experienced with one of his own family members! Did you know this?
In this final episode of the Jesus 101 series of “The Faith Explained,” Cale Clarke explores the fifth minimal fact surrounding Jesus’ resurrection: the conversion of James, a skeptical relative of Jesus. Despite early skepticism about Jesus as the Messiah, after Easter, James becomes a leader in the Jerusalem Church and is eventually martyred as its bishop.
Cale refutes objections to Jesus’ resurrection, including the stolen body theory, the swoon theory, and the displaced body theory. He argues that the resurrection accounts for the historical facts and appearances of the risen Jesus, emphasizing the implausibility of alternative explanations.
You can gain greater confidence in the fact that Jesus truly did raise from the dead. Check out the whole episode!
