Second, the empty linen wrappings are proof that Christ was resurrected. John entered the tomb, saw the linens, and believed.
- And so Simon Peter also came, following him, and entered the tomb; and he saw the linen wrappings lying there, and the face-cloth which had been on His head, not lying with the linen wrappings, but rolled up in a place by itself. So the other disciple who had first come to the tomb then also entered, and he saw and believed. - John 20:6-8
Third, the post-resurrection appearances are proof that Christ was resurrected. The women saw Christ at the tomb, two disciples on the road to Emmaus, Peter, the Apostles, five hundred believers at one time, James the half-brother of Jesus, and Paul (cf. Matthew 28:1-10; Luke 24:13-35; 1 Corinthians 15:5-8). After Christ’s ascension in Heaven, He continued to appear (cf. Acts; Revelation).
Fourth, the transformation of the Apostles is proof that Christ was resurrected. Following Christ’s death, the Apostles were hiding in fear. Even when Christ appeared, they had doubts. After interacting with the resurrected Jesus, these men were changed. When they preached on Pentecost, they were men of courage and assurance.
