Philip Yancey writes:

“Soldiers standing guard outside Jesus’ tomb were the only eye witnesses of the greatest miracle in history. … But here is an astounding fact: later that afternoon the soldiers who had seen proof to the resurrection with their own eyes changed their story to a lie, parroting the priests’ line that ‘His disciples came during that night and stole him away while we were asleep’. …

Those who did not believe found ways to ignore strong evidence”.

God has provided us with enough historical and social evidence for Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, but he leaves the choice of believing it up to us.
