Why does it matter whether or not Jesus rose from the dead? In this introduction, instructor Jonathan Morrow explains how, over the next eight teaching sessions, you will not only learn why the resurrection of Jesus is the best explanation of historical facts, you will also come to understand how it affects you personally. After completing the course, you will be able to clearly and confidently share the good news of the resurrection of Jesus with others.
Can we even know the truth about the past at all, or is it just anyone’s guess? Before we begin exploring the historical evidence for the resurrection of Jesus, we must know whether or not we can know the truth about history. In this session, Jonathan gives us five best practices for how to discover the truth about the past.
Who was Jesus of Nazareth? And who did He claim to be? There are no shortage of opinions about Jesus - but which one is true? In this session, Jonathan Morrow, with the help of an interview with William Lane Craig, explains how we can rightly understand Jesus against the background of Second Temple Judaism.
In the previous lessons, we examined the context for Jesus’s radical, unprecedented claims to divine authority and laid the historical foundation for our investigation into the resurrection. In this lesson, we will begin exploring the historical evidence for the resurrection of Jesus by examining the three bedrock facts of the resurrection given to us by using Historical Jesus scholar Gary Habermas’s “minimal facts” approach to examining the resurrection.
In this next lesson, Jonathan Morrow, Michael Licona, Sean McDowell, and William Lane Craig explore two more strongly evidenced facts that point to the resurrection of Jesus as a historical event.
The five minimal facts we have learned in the last two videos would make a strong case for the resurrection of Jesus in and of themselves; but there is still other historical evidence for the resurrection that requires an explanation. In this video, Jonathan Morrow examines the new beliefs and practices that sprang into existence seemingly overnight after the crucifixion of Jesus, and explains how this sudden worldview change provides further evidence for the truth of the resurrection.
In this session, we examine some of the most popular objections to the resurrection - and show why they just don’t explain all the historical facts that need to be explained.
How early did the belief that Jesus rose from the dead really begin to spread? If we can answer this question, we can answer the charge that the resurrection of Jesus is the stuff of myth or legend. In this session, Jonathan Morrow uses the resurrection timeline developed by historian Gary Habermas to examine just how early after Jesus’s crucifixion people began to claim that He rose from the dead.
In this course, we have made the case for the truth of the resurrection of Jesus. But if we accept this as truth, what does that mean for us? In this video, Jonathan Morrow and professor John Lennox each talk about the staggering implications the resurrection of Jesus has for our life now - and in eternity.
In this section we will answer the question "What now?" Jonathan shares the good news that Jesus’s rising from the dead means we can find hope in the love, acceptance, and forgiveness of our Creator God.
You will also learn about Impact 360 Immersion, an exciting leadership training opportunity Impact 360 Institute offers students coming to the end of their high school experience.
Lastly, we will share with you an animated short we produced to showcase the premise, challenge, and answer of the “Explore the Resurrection” course in a coffee shop encounter between two friends.
At the end of this course you will be granted access to over 50 exclusive video interviews with some of today's leading scholars including William Lane Craig, Sean McDowell, John Lennox, & Michael Licona.

All of the materials are found online (and accessible from any mobile device), so it’s no problem to add people to your group even partway in—they can easily go back and re-watch missed sessions to catch themselves up.
How a group license works: Your group leader selects a license based on the number of participants. When they purchase it, that person receives a series of coupon codes to distribute to group members. Each participant can log in and receive the materials themselves, or the group can go through the study together.
