Who is Jesus Christ?
Jesus Christ continues to inspire and challenge people as much today as he ever has and Jesus has become the leader of the world's largest religion.
Born into a violent world Jesus preached tolerance and peace. When others said that God was full of anger and out for revenge Jesus said that God loves and forgives.
More books have been written about Jesus, more songs have been sung about Jesus and more films have been made about Jesus than any other person in history.
This site provides resources to help you explore who Jesus Christ is. There is a course for you take that will introduce you to Jesus and help you get started discovering who this man is. The site assumes no prior knowledge and allows you to think whatever you wish about Jesus. However, it will also challenge you in the way you view the world and the importance of this one person Jesus Christ.
Schools (teachers and students) may also welcome the Library as a good resource to use to explore Jesus Christ in the classroom or at home.
What evidence is there that Jesus rose from the dead?
If Christians claim that the resurrection of Jesus was an historical event - then what evidence is there that this is true? Even when we consider the evidence aren't there other - just as rational - explanations for what happened?
Summary of the answer
Christians claim that Jesus actually rose from the dead. They claim this, not through blind obedience to a dogma but because they believe that there is sufficient evidence to back up the claim.
There are not just eye witness accounts in the historical documents of the New Testament but certain facts about the situation that have never been seriously questioned. All the available evidence points to: the crucifixion and death of a man called Jesus; the existence of an empty tomb; the people who first claimed that Jesus rose from the dead firmly believing that this is exactly what had happened; several of those who were critical of Jesus dramatically changing their view after claiming to have see the risen Jesus.
There is no credible answer to the existence of these facts that than Jesus actually did rise from the dead.
Can God be proved to exist?
An exploration of some of the proofs for the existence of God. Exploring what we mean when we say proof and the difference that can make to the arguments.
What does it mean to 'prove' something?
To answer that we need to step in to the world of Philosophy (because this is a philosophical question), but don't panic I'm not going to confuse you with lots of philosophical terms. Well, I might mention one (so you can impress your friends): meta-physics. Meta-physics is philosophy which is about things that are not physical and so when we are thinking about God we are thinking about meta-physics. You can now impress your friends by telling them that you are a metaphysician.
