Michael Licona Proves the Resurrection Without the Gospels

From the YouTube description:  “In May 2010, Pieter Craffert (Univ of South Africa) and Mike Licona debated the topic ‘Did Jesus Rise Physically from the Dead?’ at the University of Johannesburg.”

Licona lays out a “positive historical case” for the resurrection of Jesus based on documents written before the four gospels were written (that is, he is relying on the letters of Paul, but not Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John).  He then applies historical method to show that the resurrection of Christ is the best explanation for the facts we have.
