Frank Morrison was a skeptic. He did not believe the claims of Christianity. Morrison was also a lawyer and was determined to discredit Christianity’s greatest claim, the resurrection of Jesus Christ, by using the investigative skills he learned in his law practice.
However, after thoroughly researching the historical event, intellectual honesty compelled Morrison to come to a different conclusion and to write a book he never planned to write. Who Moved the Stone?is a classic work that validates the resurrection of Jesus Christ beyond a reasonable doubt.
Morrison is not the first or the last skeptic to take a hard look at the claims of Christianity and reverse his views of Jesus. Other well-known converts include C.S. Lewis, Josh McDowell, and Lee Strobel – all former atheists. Strobel is also the former Chicago Sun-Times reporter who began investigating the Christian faith after his wife personally claimed it.
There is no stronger evidence in a court of law than testimony from an actual eyewitness. Local news is often called “eyewitness news” to add credibility to the reporting. The early followers of Jesus were eyewitnesses of His majesty and of His resurrection, making them, not today's liberal university professors, the most credible sources of information about the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth (Matthew 17:1–8; Mark 9:2–8; Luke 9:28–36; 2 Peter 1:16-18; 1 Corinthians 15:3-5).
For another reason, Chuck Colson, the former hatchet man for President Richard Nixon, became convinced that the resurrection of Jesus Christ actually happened. “I know the resurrection is a fact, and Watergate proved it to me,” said Colson who spent time in prison. “Watergate embroiled twelve of the most powerful men in the world, and they couldn't keep a lie for three weeks. You're telling me twelve apostles could keep a lie for forty years? Absolutely impossible.”
What do you say happened two thousand years ago on a hill far away? And, does the empty tomb compel you to believe beyond a reasonable doubt?
