Adrian Holloway examines the question of how sure we can be that Jesus really rose from the dead.

He considers the implications of the historical facts surrounding the death of Jesus accepted by sceptics and believers alike. Taking these minimal facts, he asks what is the best explanation that explains each of them, and examines whether alternative explanations are satisfactory.

The talk lasts for about 20 minutes, followed by about 30 minutes of questions and answers.
