April 4, 2013 at 4 pm, 103 Rands House conference room:

Evidence for the Resurrection?

 

Drawing from the work of Craig Hazen

  • Is the resurrection of Jesus history or hoax? Fact or fiction?
  • Isn't there a better explanation of events than resurrection? Such as:
    • Unknown tomb theory: the disciples did not actually know where Jesus was buried.
    • The resurrection is a legend.
    • Jesus had a twin who showed up after he was crucified.
    • Disciples stole the body.
    • Authorities hid the body.
    • Jesus only fainted and did not actually die (swoon theory).
    • Judas, not Jesus, was actually crucified.
  • Is the resurrection of Jesus the most plausible theory that best fits the historical evidence?

Join us from 4 pm to 5 pm on Thursday, April 4, for this discussion!

Discussions are led by Albert Spalding and, from time to time, guest speakers. Prof. Spalding is the director (campus apologist) and faculty adviser for Ratio Christi at Wayne State University, a student organization recognized by the Wayne State University Dean of Students Office and the WSU Student Senate.

Especially welcome are students who don't consider themselves to be "Christians," and students who fin themselves questioning their Christian faith.
