The Bible on God: (top) The Bible on Mankind: (top) The Resurrection: What is the evidence? The Resurrection: What is the Evidence? If you were the judge presiding over murder case, you would want to be absolutely certain before convicting the defendant. If the prosecutor calls his key witnesses, but each tells a different story, his case would be very shaky. The defense attorney will argue for the acquittal of his client by demonstrating the weakness of the prosecutor's case.
