The Resurrection isn't a rational event. Isn't that an odd thing for a preacher to say? But it's true. No amount of scientific study will ever explain the Resurrection. The Resurrection isn't a historical event. Historical events have witnesses. There are no witnesses to the Resurrection -- only the people who encountered the results of the Resurrection. Today, we have the evidence before us -- two pieces of cloth, two men who saw, one woman who encountered both grave and the risen Lord. This is the place where only faith will carry us, for logic, science, and rational thinking isn't up to the task. But where faith carries us is to the only place from which the Resurrection can be viewed -- the empty tomb.
