I know the resurrection is a fact and Watergate proved it to me.
Because twelve men testified that they had seen Jesus raised from the dead.
Then they proclaimed that truth for forty years.
They never denied it even once.
Everyone was beaten, tortured, stoned, and put in prison.
They would not have endured that if it were not true.
Watergate embroiled twelve of the most powerful men in the world.
They couldn’t keep a lie for three weeks.
You are telling me that twelve apostles could keep a lie for forty years?
He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ (Luke 24:6-7)
