Another interesting post found on The Isaiah 53:5 Project site. I’m re-blogging it because it illustrates the classic circular argument used by all Christians trying to justify their belief in the Jerusalem resurrection. They start by assuming the Gospels are historical accurate eye-witness accounts, and then they proceed to cite the Gospel “evidence” to justify the truth of their original assumption.
I Saw Jesus!

Eye Witness Account
Many people today look at the Bible as just a book. Someone could have crafted the books of the New Testament to fit some passages with The Old Testament to come up with their own new religion. It is very easy to look at the Bible this way since we live in an age of media deception. Much of what we see on TV is not true. Pictures of models, actors and actresses have all been edited. Their lives are on display and edited for us to see a perfect picture.
This has spilled over into our churches. Small town pastors see airbrushed stories of giant mega churches, which leads them into years of lusting after being like the perfect church in the suburbs.
We are so used to having to read and sift through lies. When a person starts a new religion, they seem to be the one who writes the new documents, or claim it was revealed to them somehow, but there is only one source. With Jesus, He didn’t write a thing that we have today. Nothing Jesus wrote down was kept.
We have writings from Jesus’ followers. We have writings from people who experienced Him personally. The list includes: family like James and Jude; apostles like Matthew, Peter and John; and don’t forget sworn enemies of Jesus like the terrorist Saul of Tarsus who was changed in an instant into a follower of the true and living Christ.
