Resurrection Eye-Witness Accounts

By Rev. Ernest O'Neill

And if you doubt, or if you wonder, "Well, can you prove that they were eyewitnesses?" Sure! The literature of the first century is filled with their letters. Letters from this man to this group, from this group to this group. Even the Roman historians, even people like Tacitus and Teutonius, even critical historians like Pliny and Celsus and Porphyry refer to these men as being alive at this time, and to this man, Jesus, being alive and being crucified at that time.

So, not only are there reliable eyewitnesses, but their eyewitness account is corroborated by the contemporary historians of their time. Not only that, of course, but they wrote the account at a time when other people were alive who had seen these events.
