Jesus was an actual person who lived in Galilee, Nazareth and Jerusalem during the 1st century. He had a real group of followers. He claimed to be God. He claimed he would rise from the dead after his crucifixion. According to the Bible he was seen by over 500 people after his resurrection. His followers were willing to be mocked, beaten and even killed as they spread His teachings around the world. They would not have been willing to do that if they had hidden the body themselves and/or knew He was dead.

The Bible claims to be God's account of the history of the world. It continues to be the bestselling book in the world and is translated into almost every language of the world. It has been supported by archaeology, science and each time new manuscripts are discovered its claims are verified further.
