Five Hundred

by Berni Dymet

1 Cor. 15:6 Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers and sisters at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died.

Don't know if you've ever caught up with me in these short, one minute spots, I call them "Just a Minute" but this particular program is episode number 500.  Five hundred.  The boy can talk eh?!

That's something to celebrate…but then again, what if, well, what if Jesus isn't who He says He is.  What if, well what if He didn't rise from the dead.  Wow!  Have I just wasted my time or what?

Hmm.  Now what?  What does the evidence say?

Have a listen to the record - written by a guy named Paul - an Apostle.  He's writing about Jesus after the resurrection:

Then Jesus appeared to more than five hundred brothers and sisters at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died.

He appeared to how many? Five hundred. That's not a bad number. In tiny first century Jerusalem, that was an awful lot of people. Five hundred.

I used to think this whole Christianity thing was some blind leap of faith. But the evidence is compelling.  Five hundred.
