Why do Christians believe the tomb of Jesus was empty? Are there any good reasons to believe the claim? What difference does it make in the first place? Detective Jimmy Wallace (J. Warner’s son) tackles these issues and concerns as part of his Incarnate Investigation Video Series.

If the tomb had not been empty, the Jewish religious leaders at the time would have been delighted to produce His body, which would have ended Christianity immediately! The fact is, the only explanation they could come up with was the lame one that the disciples stole His body and concocted the story that He had risen from the dead! That has even more holes in it, not to mention the fact that the disciples, except for John, who was tortured in hot oil and repeatedly beaten, all died lonely and brutal, inhumane deaths! Yet not one ever recanted! People die every day for what they believe to be true; but no one willingly dies for what he knows is a lie!
