A foundational tenet in Christianity is that Jesus was resurrected following his crucifixion. But how is he risen? Whose magic hand was responsible for the resurrection?
According to John, Jesus H. Christ’s holy and holey dead hands raised himself! I’ve seen dead bodies before. They aren’t pretty. I have no reason to believe that a bloated corpse is capable of doing anything as miraculous as coming back to life. Dead people can’t even tie their own shoes. What makes anyone believe they are capable of black magic?
But alas! Acts comes to the rescue and contradicts John! Here we see it was god who raised Jesus from the dead. Whew! But wait… isn’t Jesus also god? I suppose this is where evangelical types would say “Even a dead god is capable of things we can’t even begin to imagine. You just need to have faith.”
No thanks. Faith is not possible for this one.
