At crucifixion you see the apostles defeated; completely demoralized, disorganized, fleeing and hiding. Almost immediately afterward you see them welded together in strength, and love and infinite resolve. What happened? THE RESURRECTION HAPPENED. You weren't there and I wasn't there. THEY WERE THERE. The Disciples were there. They witnessed the resurrection. THEY SAW, CONVERSED WITH AND EVEN DINED WITH THE RESURRECTED CHRIST! They sacrificed all pursuit of worldly gain, their family life, their personal safety and eventually all were martyred to death, except with the possible exception of John. THEY WITNESSED WITH THEIR LIVES AND WITH THEIR DEATHS. They bore witness of Christ's resurrection, the birth of Christianity. You think they were easy to convince? Thomas said "I will NOT believe until I have placed my hand into His side and nail scarred hands." Nobody will sacrifice himself for his own lie! Only the opposite would apply man will LIE TO ESCAPE torture and death. All Disciples of Christ did voluntarily sacrifice themselves for their FAITH! Would that be really too much to ask of any Pastor today? How about "Pick up your cross and follow me"? Really, too much to ask any Pastor? What moved those men? Paul was initially the worst enemy Christianity had, till he encountered the RESURRECTED Christ. What convinced him to abandon his previous life, family, position in the Sanhedrin to follow the one he had persecuted? He was whipped, tortured, incarcerated, suffered shipwreck, then had his head cut off. Why would a man deliberately choose this course? This is possible ONLY in the presence of rock-solid, factual, incontrovertible, physical evidence for Resurrection; the birth of our Faith! God provided it! THAT is the Christian witness, Dear Boy. By comparison, the disciples of Mohammed, while he still lived, already plotted to murder each other to seize power over each other; and did so. This is how the split of Shia and Sunna in Islam originated. To this day there is mourning over the slaughter among Mohammedans. That is their witness. The witness, as well as the message of the Bible, are unparalleled.

Not the messenger, only the message is important. Please visit for a surprise.
