At the heart of Christianity is a claim with wild implications: that the Son of God, Jesus Christ, was put to death at the hands of Roman soldiers and yet, less than 72 hours later, was alive again. The wild implications: that he really was who he claimed to be, and that his resurrection resoundingly defeated death, giving hope of our own resurrection to come.
