10-18 Witnesses to the Resurrection

Section 10: The Trial and Resurrection of Jesus

Explanation:

Each of the four Gospels concludes with an account of Jesus' resurrection. Taken together with the additional witnesses, mentioned especially by Paul and in the Book of Mormon, numerous people bear testimony of the reality of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Chart 10-18 lists eighteen recorded appearances of the resurrected Christ. In most cases, the time and place of the appearance are known, and specific details of the event are reported. These true and faithful witnesses are more numerous than people usually recognize. In the mouth of many witnesses, this all-important event has been established for all the world to see and, hopefully, accept.
