If we were to take away the resurrection of Jesus, his miracles, and all 
the claims and allusions to his divinity, the New Testament would be
unanimously regarded as the most accurate and complete historical
documents of Jewish life in first century Palestine; but the resurrection,
the miracles, and the divinity of Jesus are there nonetheless, so countless
efforts– past, present, and ongoing– have been made to discredit its
reliability all to no avail. Based on the available evidence, both historically
objective and my personal subjective experiences, I am utterly convinced
of its truth!
