Easter Special: Why We Can Trust the Resurrection
Mark Maney
2022 Episode 7

In this Easter Special, Associate Pastor of Massey Presbyterian Church, Auckland and New Zealand Christian Network writer and contributor Rev. Mark Maney discusses with host Michelle Englehardt the case for the resurrection of Jesus. The Resurrection is a key tenant of Christianity, without which, our “faith is useless” (1 Corinthians 15:14). No wonder Christ’s resurrection is attacked by skeptics and atheists so strongly.
Mark explores some of the most common objections to the ‘impossibility’ of the resurrection, and demonstrates the evidence in scripture and extra-biblical texts for His resurrection, and why we can have more certainty that this historic event actually took place.
