It Happened.?! Jesus' resurrection is the single greatest hope-giver. Ever! He has power over death. Even more so, He has the gift of eternal life. It is the singularly unique aspect of the claims of Christianity. The evidence of the resurrection of Jesus demands a verdict that it was true. But, imagine being a little closer to the event. Your life would become controlled by it. You would not be able to get it out of your every waking thought. Unless you were a resurrection denier—your only other choice.
