Cold Case Detective Asks: Is the Resurrection Reasonable?

By The Stream Published on August 24, 2019

Cold case detective J. Warner Wallace discusses the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus with apologist Sean McDowell as part of the Advocates series from AwanaYM. Warner tells McDowell how he analyzed the evidence for the resurrection as a cold case and considered whether it could have been a conspiracy.

“It wasn’t until I had worked conspiracies for a number of years that I realized that wasn’t going to get it done, either,” Wallace says. He then explains the five components of a successful conspiracy.

Could a supernatural resurrection be the most reasonable explanation?
