Very early, I realized that if Jesus was raised from the dead in time-space history, then this would easily be the strongest indication that Jesus was who he said he was. But at that time, I knew neither the evidence for the resurrection nor any strong reasons for concluding that Jesus thought of himself as Deity. Only years later, after 18 books on this subject along with debates and dialogues with some of the brightest minds around, did I rest in the argument that not only was the resurrection by far the best explanation for the historical facts upon which virtually all critical scholars who study this subject agree, but that this event was also the strongest indication of Jesus’ identity.— Dr. Gary Habermas (from, Is Christianity a form of intellectual suicide?)
