How Do We Know for Sure That Jesus was Dead on the Cross? (Video)

J. Warner Wallace discusses the evidence for Christianity with apologist, Sean McDowell, as part of the “Advocates” series from Awana. In this clip, J. Warner describes a common objection to the Resurrection of Jesus: How do we know that Jesus was really dead? If he was just unconscious when they removed him from the cross, this might explain the alleged ‘resurrection” appearances. If you’re interested in this great series for high school students, visit the Advocates webpage.

This book teaches readers ten principles of cold-case investigations and applies these strategies to investigate the claims of the gospel authors. The book is accompanied by an eight-session Cold-Case Christianity DVD Set (and Participant’s Guide) to help individuals or small groups examine the evidence and make the case.
