Jesus Christ is the only religious figure in history to conquer death, and that resurrection is founded on historical facts, eyewitness accounts, and the personal conviction of each person who comes to know Jesus.
The existence of Jesus is confirmed by both the Holy Bible, and non-biblical writings. The disciples who followed Jesus all were convinced He was crucified and that He rose from the dead. Eyewitness accounts describe in detail His arrest, that He was beaten, and that He was crucified on a hill with two other men. He was confirmed dead when a spear was thrust into His side. He was wrapped in cloth, and sealed inside a tomb with a heavy stone across the entrance. Sixteen Roman Soldiers were charged with guarding the tomb. Even under heavy persecution not a single disciple or witness changed their story. They also testified that He appeared to them after His death, a claim they also never turned away from, despite all of the efforts by those who persecuted them to get them to. Afterward, Paul, a sworn enemy of Christians who carried pride in his citizenship as a wealthy and powerful Roman and was proud of his merciless persecution of Christians suddenly changed his mind and became a Christian after claiming to see Jesus after He had risen. Jesus' skeptical half-brother James also shed his doubt and became a follower of Christ.
