A tool for explaining the historical evidence for the Bible

‘For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.’ – 1 Corinthians 15:3-7

The Gospel Coalition Australia has launched a simple tool for sharing on social media. In a world where we assume that truth waxes and wanes depending on which news source you favour, its important to remember that our faith is one established on historical record, supported by archaeological evidence and remains fact.

This tool is only 3 minutes long, uses a conversational tone and raises questions to discuss with friends, family and colleagues, it also includes a detailed supporting webpage with references to the facts mentioned. It's a well-curated, single page that can help you as you discuss the factual evidence for Jesus life, death and resurrection.

You can access the webpage and more useful resources for explaining your faith here: https://au.thegospelcoalition.org/biggesthoax/
