He wouldn't leave without a REAL AMAZING proof. Faith was sufficient for the last 20 centuries
He died due to gravity of all injuries and have his chest trespassed by a roman javelin through his right lung until reach his heart, to confirm his death. The correspondent fluids can be easily found today.
But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.

Do people doubt that Julius Caesar existed? Well, there is more evidence (manuscripts) that Jesus Christ existed than Julius Caesar.
For some reason there is a misconception that the 'God of the OT' rains fire and brimstone down on people for so much as breathing out the wrong nostril while Jesus is our buddy who lets us get away with murder. But this simply isn't true. God did not change, the covenant did. I don't know what else to say to get this point across. Compare 'the fall from grace' to being 'under grace.' Jesus restored us to grace instead of the law and instant punishment as promised. It really isn't a case of one angry God vs. a God that is lax.
Both love, both mercy, both judgment.

be careful what you ask for, you just might get it. and we both know, you don't want to read it or see it. and if you did read it or see it, you'd be sure to employ the ever-receeding evidentary horizon...always just a few steps out of reach (a commonly used tactic to deny alien encounters, ufos and a host of other topics). so why the charade? if you already know the answer, why ask the question?

JaxonRoberts brings up a valid argument.The Divine "justice" that is rife in the OT appears nowhere in the NT.
And which covenant are you talking about?
Love thy neighbour?
That one appeared in the OT way before Jesus was around.
