What About Those Five Hundred Witnesses Of The Resurrection?

By
Bassam Zawadi

 

 

 

Many Christians use the following verse as one of the proofs for the resurrection...

1 Corinthians 15:6

6After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.


Christians use this to show that there were over five hundred witnesses that saw Jesus during his resurrection.

How come we have no testimony from any of these five hundred people? How come none of these five hundred people ever wrote anything regarding their experiences when they witnessed the resurrection of Jesus?

This is all hearsay evidence, which is inadmissible.

However, Christians could argue back, 'well Paul would never have made such a daring statement if it weren't true'

However, people we need to think about something. The alleged resurrection took place over 800 kilometers away from Corinthia. Do you think that the Corinthians are going to travel all the way and go and investigate that easily? Plus Paul did not indicate where those 500 hundred witnesses were in order for the people to go and ask them.

There is really nothing strong or special about this 'evidence'.

Jesus mentioned Muhammad by the name in the Bible.

Did Isaiah 53 really prophesies about the crucifixion of Jesus? It supports Islam's claims about Jesus peace be upon him never died on the cross.  I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken.    My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion.  I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
