Was the Tomb Really Empty?


Was the Tomb Really Empty?[Originally posted in cafn.wordpress.com] In his essay “Was the Tomb Really Empty?” Robert H. Stein believes that Christianity without resurrection of Jesus Christ is no more gospel or “good news”. The foundation of Christian faith is laid on the resurrection of Jesus from dead.
