We have solid grounds for thinking that Jesus of Nazareth not only claimed to be the divine Son of Man and the Son of God and the Jewish Messiah, claims which provoked his condemnation by the Jewish court and led ultimately to his crucifixion, but also that those claims were true because God raised him from the dead. As the early apostles preached, “God would not allow his holy one to see corruption” (Acts 2.27). God has acted in history, and we can know it. — William Lane Craig (from, Jesus and His Passion)
