The New Testament has hundreds of manuscripts from at least 60 A D. These writers were eye witnesses of Jesus 's ressurrected body. Most significient is that after they saw His body arisen .... They were willing to die in order to spread the gospel. FAITH and HOPE and HEAVEN are the rewards of US who DO believe. I believe 100%. Therefore my home is in heaven.
For centuries there have been scholars and laypeople alike that have tried to disprove the Bible, none have had any success. With approximately 1500 prophecies, that were written throughout different centuries, that have come to pass; making it the most accurate book ever written, it makes it a very viable source of truth of Jesus' resurrection. Along with that, He will make himself known to ANY who sincerely seek Him! Pray for God to give you guidance and direction any time you have these kinds of questions and He will be faithful to do so, He wants to have a relationship with each and every one of us, to show Himself and His love for us-to us! God bless!!
There is sufficient historical evidence in the Gospels and epistles found in the New Testament to very reasonably support the resurrection of Jesus.The New Testament documents were written by eyewitnesses and have been transmitted from the original writings to the copies with extreme accuracy. Therefore, the issue is with the content of the Gospels. So, the evidence of the resurrection of Jesus is found in the eyewitness accounts recorded in the Gospels. The writers were not evil people who wanted to deceive anyone. They claimed to have seen the risen Lord. As a result, their lives were changed because of the resurrection of Jesus, the risen Lord! They risked life and limb for what they saw, not for what someone merely told them. So, we can be sure of the resurrection when we look at the New Testament documents and what is recorded in them. http://carm.org/questions/about-jesus/how-can-we-be-sure-resurrection-jesus
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. (Romans 10:9, 10 NLT)=================================For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. (1 Corinthians 15:3-8, 12-19 KJV)
Not only are we not sure he resurrected, we can be sure he did not. The accounts in the NT are late additions that did not appear in the original gospels (like the account in Mark which virtually all agree is a late forgery that the author of Mark did not write), or totally unacceptable later accounts, written after the last people knowing Jesus personally already died. I ask my friends who accept the NT as inerrant: even if Mark, say, is inerrant, if much later some scribe added a paragraph at the end, is that still inerrant even if Mark never wrote it? What's likely to have happened is that some of his followers stole Jesus's body from the tomb. It was found that the tomb was empty. The rest is just myth that started spreading and grew way out if control.
If you read the bible, not regurgitate it with a pre-conclusion, and you put it all together rather than cherry pick, you will discover that Jesus never died. It was all a set up, he never rose from the dead.
In order to determine and know if Jesus was resurrected, you would first have to show he lived in the first place, which there is not one reliable piece of evidence. So to answer your question directly, no there is no way to know Jesus was resurrected, because we don't even know for sure he even lived. Many above me have stated it was written down in the bible, but, those gospels were not known to Paul, who wrote most of the NT, and as well were written some 40-50 years after the supposed death of Jesus, They also have no record of who really wrote them. The bible is not a reliable source of evidence, as it is really only a witness for it's self with no corroborating sources.
I don't think we can. It's like a game of Telephone. Of course, in this case, there have been hundreds of years passing and millions (or perhaps billions) of people retelling the story, whereas a typical game of Telephone consists of a few people and takes fifteen minutes... If we can completely screw up a story during ONE game of Telephone, who knows how reliable a story could be when hundreds of years have past since it was first supposedly witnessed.
