The New Testament is the proof that God exists.
Jesus repeatedly claimed to be God, then performed 40 miracles to prove it. Atheists say the New Testament is not true; the writers were not eyewitnesses. There are 203 eyewitness statements in the 260 chapters of the New Testament. The writers say they saw Jesus perform miracles and raised from the dead, with their own eyes.
Challenge an atheist to provide you with evidence the writers of the New Testament lied, the conversation is over.
There is no evidence anywhere that these men did not tell the truth.
You will often hear atheists say that the reason they don’t believe in God, is there is no evidence He exists
Jesus claimed to be God and said His miracles are the proof.
During the time that Jesus performed 40 miracles and people saw Him do these things, the Apostle John said:
“Despite all the miracles Jesus had done, most of the people still did not believe in him.” ~John 12:37
Jesus scolded the Pharisees who had also seen Him perform miracles that prove He is God, saying:
“You haven’t believed in me even though you have seen me.” ~John 6:36
If evidence is really the problem, as atheists claim; why is it that people in the first century who actually saw Jesus perform miracles that prove He is God, still did not believe?
- The New Testament was written by eyewitnesses
- There are 203 eyewitness statements in the New Testament
- The New Testament was written by 44 AD
- The New Testament meets every requirement for valid, historical events
- The eyewitness testimony in the New Testament meets the legal burden for valid and truthful testimony
Evidence has never been the problem. It is a heart that refuses to believe—that is the problem.
