BEYOND REASONABLE DOUBT

This Easter at St Martins we will look at why faith in Jesus is beyond reasonable doubt.  Focussing on the account of the very relatable 'doubting Thomas' we will see why bringing our doubts to Jesus enables us to find solid faith.


Beyond reasonable doubt is the highest standard of proof that must be met in any trial.  When we look at the New Testament we find a high degree of proof.  For the heart of Christian faith is a series of events recorded in a collection of histories and letters, gathered together in the Bible.  


Do we have more than one source testifying to these events?  In the case of Jesus we have between 5 and 7 different sources saying roughly the same thing about him.  That puts the historical events of Jesus' life beyond reasonable doubt for most specialists working today.  In fact, the bible is probably the best-preserved text of all ancient history and even Non-Christian writings confirm the broad outline of Jesus' life.

That's easter: Life to death

A short film from St Helen's Church that takes a close look at what Easter is all about, and asks why the cross and Jesus' death is such a big deal for Christians.
