  • The Pharisees Tried To Destroy The Evidence, Literally.

    The takeaway point of this post is that the Lord Jesus presented compelling
    evidence to His enemies, the Pharisees and Teachers Of The Law, and they
    responded by trying to literally KILL the evidence.

    __________


    "I would believe in God if I had sufficient evidence" say many unbelievers these
    days on the Internet.

    "Give me convincing evidence and I will then believe in Christianity" say many
    unbelievers on Internet Forums.

    There is constant talk on the Internet about "give me convincing evidence."

    Below is a clear example of some people that had clear compelling sufficient
    empirical evidence that rose to the certainty-level of 2 + 2 = 4 --- and what did
    they do with this evidence?

    Answer: they tried to KILL the evidence, literally.

    Read on . . .

    The Teachers Of The Law and the Pharisees saw the miracles Jesus performed.

    They had all the proof {evidence} they needed that He was worthy of their faith, and
    still they did not believe in Him.

    John chapters 11 and 12 tells the story about the death of Lazarus and about the Lord
    Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead.

    There were many people there and they saw Lazarus, who had been dead for 4 days,
    raised from the dead by the Lord Jesus.

    The Teachers Of The Law and the Pharisees knew this, and fully understood
    this -- and they decided to "do something about it."

    Lazarus-now-alive WAS HIMSELF the Logical, Empirical, Rational Evidence
    for the truth of Christianity.

    So?

    So what did the Teachers Of The Law and the Pharisees decide to do when
    faced with that type of strong solid irrefutable Logical, Rational, Empirical
    evidence?

    Answer:

    That plotted first to kill the Lord Jesus who had provided the compelling evidence.

    LAZARUS-NOW-ALIVE , , , WAS , , , the strong solid Logical, Rational,
    Empirical evidence.

    The plot to kill the Lord Jesus:
    "So from that day on they plotted to take his life." John 11:53

    Next they plotted to kill the evidence itself which was Lazarus-very-much-alive
    who had been dead for 4 days.

    Lazarus WAS THE EVIDENCE , , , , THE LIVING EVIDENCE.

    The plot to kill Lazarus:
    "So the chief priests made plans to kill Lazarus as well." John 12:10

    So?

    So now you know why Jesus' enemies, the Pharisees and Teachers Of
    The Law, were evil people.

    They were murderers.

    Murderers who tried to KILL the evidence and get rid of it.
