This lecture takes a serious look at the resurrection accounts in the Gospels and some of the surprises they contain. It also presents some of the best arguments for the resurrection. The Champion Forest Baptist Church (CFBC) hosted this lecture on the eve of Easter in April, 2012. The lecture is followed by three responses and a time for questions and answers. The responders are David Fleming, pastor of CFBC, John Monson, professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and archaeologist, and Mark Lanier, Biblical teacher and owner of the library.
