'Did Jesus really rise from the dead? The story of Jesus’ resurrection is central to Christianity but few people are aware that there are powerful historical reasons for believing in it.

I following his finger, and saw a brightness, and then the unmistakable presence of the sun. It was visible for less than a minute, but it was enough. Sometimes the Risen Jesus seems hidden in the grey mist of our struggles. And a times we will be granted glimpses of
