A Christian-Muslim Debate “Did Jesus Rise From The Dead?“
Did Jesus rise from the dead?It is a crucial point of debate between Christianity and Islam, the two faiths with the greatest number of followers in the world today.Christianity stands or falls on whether Jesus rose from the dead: “If Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.” (1 Corinthians 15:14).Islam, on the other hand, insists that Jesus did not die on the cross and therefore did not rise from the dead.Finding the correct answer to this question is therefore of paramount importance in pointing to the truth about the way to eternal life.
