“They got up and returned at once to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven and those with
them, assembled together and saying, “It is true! The Lord has risen and has appeared to
Simon.” The two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them
when he broke the bread.” Luke 24:33-35

There are many eye witness accounts and testimony to the veracity of the resurrection. The
Bible says that Jesus was seen by over five hundred people during the forty days he spent on
the earth before ascending into heaven. Acts 1:3,9 1 Corinthians 15:6

Lee Strobel writes: “This was not merely a fleeting observance of a shadowy figure by one or
two people. There were multiple appearances confirmed in more than one Gospel.”

These eyewitness accounts are given to encourage our faith. The claims of scripture pertaining
to the resurrection are valid and worthy of consideration.
