How do we know He is risen?
How do we know Jesus was risen on that Sunday morning? There are obviously several reasons, but let me pose one you don’t often hear….
First century Jewish society was very mysonigistic in that women were not even trusted as witnesses of a crime. They were considered completely unreliable. If the only witnesses you had were women, you were not guilty, yet the Apostles, to a man, gave credit to the Marys who first arrived at the tomb and who told them Christ had risen. The only possible reason for them to do that was because it was true!! If this had been a hoax, female eyewitnesses would have been the last thing they would have used. Even in death, Christ elevated those who were the least in society, and as a result, gave us yet another tangible proof that He is risen!!
