My guest on the radio program today was Dr. Tim McGrew, Professor of Philosophy at Western Michigan University.  He provided five lines of evidence that Jesus is ALIVE:

A         Appearances to his followers (1 Cor 15, Mt 28, Lk 24, Jn 20-21, Acts 1, Josephus and others)

L          Low status of women in first century Judaism (criterion of embarrassment; Mt 28, Mk 16, Lk 24, Jn 20)

I           Immediate proclamation of the resurrection in Jerusalem (Acts 2)

V          Voluntary sufferings undergone by the first witnesses (Acts, Josephus, Tacitus and others)

E          Empty tomb (Mt 28, Mk 16, Lk 24, Jn 20, 1 Cor 15, and others)
