A highly qualified British judge examines the evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Assessing secular evidence, historical sources, and the testimony of those involved Graeme Smith carefully and critically analyses the various resurrection accounts, their inconsistences and their value as evidence. This succinct but powerful document places less weight on the Gospel accounts and considers other evidence first; sources from outside the gospels, such as Josephus, Tacitus and Pliny; logical alternatives to the resurrection; and the opinions of experts in the fields of history, literary history, palaeography and law. Could this most improbable story be true? If so, what are the implications?
After a distinguished career as a solicitor, specialising in civil litigation, Graeme Smith became a full-time District Judge of High Court and County Court in 2003. In 2012 he was appointed a Crown Court Recorder. An accredited Methodist local preacher, he and his wife Helen currently attend an Assemblies of God church.
