Everybody has a stake in the truth about who Jesus was and what really happened to him. The fundamental claims of Christianity - that Jesus' death was for God's forgiveness of our sins, and that his resurrection destroyed death's power over us - matter profoundly to all people. These claims raise questions in the minds of both Christians and non-Christians alike:
Is there evidence for Jesus' death?
Is there evidence for Jesus' resurrection?
Dr Barnett carefully analyses the historical integrity of non-Christian historians of the ancient world and New Testament writers to establish the facts of the case. He invites readers to consider the evidence and come to a conclusion concerning the truth about Jesus.
