I can understand where people are coming from. I really can. I understand why they think we are crazy.
Many people hold to a naturalistic worldview that would affirm the scientific method as the ultimate source of truth. Therefore, claiming the historical truth of an event like the resurrection of Jesus seems not only implausible but also preposterous.
We have to say more to people than "just believe".
Our faith is not a blind faith, but a reasoned faith that brings us to logical hope.
Recently I discovered the one-minute apologist, a youtube channel that seeks to "give credible answers to curious questions". An apologist is someone who logically defends the Christian faith. But one of the challenges to apologetics is that it is an incredibly broad field. There is a lot to research.
But Bobby Conway has put together succinct answers that are digestible for the average follower of Jesus.
I've put together a youtube playlist of some of the best of the one-minute apologists arguments for the resurrection. You can click on that playlist here, or you can see the videos below with a summary of their argument. I hope this helps you have a reason for your hope.
