This week we reviewed the Resurrection of Jesus as recorded in the first eight verses of chapter 16 of Mark’s Gospel. We focused our discussion on the historicity of the Resurrection and the authenticity of Mark’s account.
I also taught on this passage on Easter Sunday 2016. That lesson focused more on the textual criticism of the passage and archaeological evidence of the Resurrection.

After His death had been confirmed by three completely different sources, Jesus the Nazarene was raised from the dead. Once. And for all.
