“As a lawyer I have made a prolonged study of the evidences for the events of the first Easter Day. To me the evidence is conclusive, and over and over again in the High Court I have secured the verdict on evidence not nearly so compelling. Inference follows on evidence, and a truthful witness is always artless and disdains effect. The Gospel evidence for the resurrection is of this class, and as a lawyer I accept it unreservedly as the testimony of truthful men to facts they were able to substantiate”–Sir Edward Clarke.
“I cannot begin to unfold the meaning of the death of Christ without first admitting that much remains a mystery. Christians believe that the cross is the pivotal event in history. Little wonder that our tiny minds cannot fully take it in! One day the veil will be altogether removed, and all will become clear. We shall see Christ as he is and worship him through eternity for what he shas done. ‘Now we see only a reflection as in a mirror, then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am full known’ “–John Stott, Basic Christianity, 89.
“If Jesus rose from the dead, then you have to accept all that he said; if he didn’t rise from the dead, then why worry about any of what he said? The issue on which everything hangs is not whether or not you like his teaching but whether or not he rose from the dead”–Tim Keller.
“The entire plan for the future has its key in the resurrection”–Billy Graham.
“The message of Easter is that God’s new world has been unveiled in Jesus Christ and that you’re now invited to belong to it”–N.T. Wright.
