Responding to New Resurrection Challenges
Gary R. Habermas
Dale Allison’s Resurrection Skepticism
The chief purpose of this essay is to address the alternative scenarios that Dale Allison suggests regarding the historicity of Jesus’s resurrection. Do other options explain viably the New Testament accounts? Special attention is paid to Allison’s treatment of apparitions of the dead, as well as listing several unique qualities of Jesus’s appearances. Throughout, attention is drawn to Allison’s own conclusions that support the disciples really having seen Jesus again after his death.
