EVIDENCE OF JESUS' DIVINITY

(Continued)

In fact, most of the miracles of Jesus that are recorded in the New Testament happened in full-view of multiple people.

Jesus' Miracles Were Undeniable

In John 3, Nicodemus, a Pharisee, came to Jesus by night. He began his conversation by saying:
Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.
Even Jesus' chief enemies, the Jewish authorities, admitted that Jesus' worked many miracles. John writes in John 11:47:
Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.

Paul Was a Witness

Luke describes Saul's (Who later was known as Paul) journey to persecute the Christians in Damascus in Acts 9:1-8. As he journeyed, he saw a bright light from heaven. He heard a voice, "saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?" (Acts 9:4). Luke continues (Acts 9:5):
And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
Luke then describes Saul's conversion from persecutor of Christians to a faithful servant of Jesus Christ who experienced numerous brutal punishments for his service.
So, Saul was a percipient witness of Jesus' divinity.

Whatever Became of Jesus' Body?

Matthew tells us that, on the first day of the week (after Jesus' crucifixion), there was a great earthquake and an angel descended from heaven and rolled back the stone from the mouth of Jesus' tomb and sat upon it. Matthew writes, "And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men" (Matt. 28:4).
Mary Magdelene and the "other Mary" (Matt. 28:1) came to see the sepulchre. The angel told the women that Jesus had risen and invited them to see the empty tomb and go tell the other disciples that he had risen. According to Matthew 28:9, Jesus Himself met them and spoke to them.
As the women were leaving, some of the guards went and told the priests of these events who, with the elders, bribed them to say, "His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept" (Matt. 28:13). Matthew records in Matthew 28:15:
So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day.
Though this "saying" was "commonly reported...until this day" (when Matthew wrote this book - 80's to 90's AD) no one has ever produced the body of Jesus, even to this day! Surely, the Jewish authorities would have gone all-out to find Jesus' body to prove he had not risen, yet it was never found. Why? Because there was no body! Jesus had risen from the dead, as Matthew, Luke, and John, who had been witnesses of His walking and talking after the resurrection, and Mark, recorded. So convincing was this evidence that Peter was able to convince 3,000 non-believers, many of whom had been complicit in His crucifixion, to turn to Him in obedience (Acts 2).

More Than Five Hundred Witnesses Saw Jesus After His Resurrection

In 1 Corinthians 15, Paul writes that he had proclaimed the Gospel, "by which also ye are saved" (1 Cor. 15:2). He explained that the gospel was the glad tidings:
