Jesus was not a divine man. He was not a human God. He was the God-man. Perfect humanity and perfect Deity.
How do we know Jesus was not just another wild-eyed fanatic? How do we know He was not just another religious teacher or some guru? I’ll tell you how we know—He walked out of that tomb!
You may say, How do we know he did that? That’s a good question. Not only was He seen after the Resurrection by many people—on one occasion, in a gathering of 500—but in Acts 1:3 it says, "To whom also He [Jesus] showed Himself alive after His passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God."
People with good minds far better than mine have said that there is inescapable evidence that Jesus Christ came out of that grave, more evidence than that Julius Caesar ever lived. To say that Jesus Christ did not rise from the dead is to fly in the face of sheer reason, apart from revelation. He arose. He came out of that grave.
