Groups of People Today Claim to See Jesus. Why do Many Christians Doubt these Claims but Believe the Claims of the Disciples?

One of the biggest arguments used by Christians for the historicity of the Resurrection is the fact that the Gospels claim that large groups of people saw Jesus.  How could so many people have been hallucinating the exact same hallucination all at the same time?  That’s impossible!  Therefore, what they claimed they saw must have been real.

But think about this:  Our earliest record of the alleged Jesus appearances is found in First Corinthians 15, and this passage gives us zero details about what these groups of people allegedly saw!  Christians assume that they saw a walking, talking flesh and blood body, but this assumption is based on the stories found in the Gospels; books which most experts believe were written by non-eyewitnesses, writing in an ancient genre of literature which allowed for extensive embellishments to the story.

What if the only thing that groups of disciples ever really saw were cloud formations that they believed looked like Jesus???

Check out this video in which hundreds of modern Christians “see” Jesus:

  1. In this video, Jesus appears ON STAGE to hundreds of people! A woman photographed it! What more evidence do God-hating, bound-for-eternity-in-Hell, Lucifer-loving skeptics want???

    1. I’m sure they will find some excuse not to accept the obvious: Superstitious human beings believe all kinds of crazy things. So the fact that a few first century peasants believed that their recently deceased friend “appeared” to them should not surprise us.
