Yes, Jesus Rose from the Dead

Scoffers often say that the Bible is "fairy tales", which exposes their ignorance of historical documents, mythology, and the wording of fairy tales. Scripture is very specific, and does not read like mythology or the sacred texts of other world religions. When this is pointed out, mockers may demand, "Give me evidence that Jesus rose from the dead. But leave the Bible out of it, use neutral ground and extra-biblical sources". This child doesn't play by their rules, which actually means to admit that the Bible is false, and they have the "wisdom" to decide that Jesus is worthy of their worship. No, evidence must be presented in the proper framework.

While, there are extra-biblical sources regarding Jesus, the events in Jerusalem were unimportant to the Roman Empire. Not all that many accounts were written that still exist, unlike the quantity of biblical manuscripts. In addition to being God's revelation to us regarding creation, sin, righteousness, salvation, Judgement, and more, the Bible is also a book of history. If people can get over their prejudicial conjecture and the genetic fallacy, and are drawn by the Spirit beyond their spiritual blindness, they could see that there is a great deal of evidence that Jesus, God the Son, defeated death so that we can have life in him.
Unlike many world religions, Christianity’s origins are not shrouded in an unwitnessed, mythical past. The Christian faith centers on the person and work of Jesus Christ. His life and miracles were witnessed by thousands, and His sacrificial death on the Cross was also a public spectacle. Three days later, God raised His Son from the dead, and over the next forty days, Jesus appeared to hundreds of individuals.

Overstating the importance of the Resurrection is impossible. It conclusively demonstrated Christ’s power over the grave, secured our hope of eternal life, and proved that He truly was and is the Son of God. Because He rose, Christ also proved that every non-Christian belief system is false, and that He will eventually return to judge this world (Acts 17:30–31).

Is there evidence that Jesus bodily rose from the dead? Yes, a great deal. This proves that he is who he said, death is defeated, and there is life for those who have received him.
