Hanging on the Resurrection

English: Resurrection of Christ

(Photo credit: Wikipedia)

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 Reason for God

As for Jesus’ teachings, it is all or nothing, and it hangs on an extremely strong foundation: the historicity of the resurrection of Jesus. Here is an excellent article that may be of great help in regards to the historicity of the resurrection (along with listening to William Lane Craig on the issue): http://www.desiringgod.org/resource-library/articles/historical-evidence-for-the-resurrection
