Biblical Evidences of Jesus's Resurrection 

7 Proofs To Believe Jesus rose from death

Then He said to them, "Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. Luke 24:46-47.

The hope of the Christian faith lies in the death and the resurrection of our lord Jesus Christ.  And incomplete would be the gospel of the Christian faith without it.                                             
 1 Corinthians 15: 16-17

Whether Jesus Christ rose from the dead or not has been of much debate among various people, right from the crucifixion day, even to these days entirely.  

Some people have come to disagree with the believe that Christ rose from the dead by reasons such as; the Pharisees false verdicts about His resurrection, surreal writings of scribes and non-adherence to the writings of the prophets.
Some even go further to assert that His body was stolen from the tomb (despite roman guards that were guarding it.) by the disciples who sneak in by night and carried Him away. 
As an addition, it was also asserted that Jesus was replaced by someone else, coupled with the surreal fact that Apostle Mark make up the story, and later on, gospels picked it up.

However, according to Wright (A biblical Scholar); only one explanation suffices from all these and it’s “rock Solid”; the discovery that Jesus tomb was empty, plus his various physical appearance, etc. provide the only plausible explanation for the rise of the Christian faith.

The reality indeed is that the hope of the Christian faith lies in the death and the resurrection of our lord Jesus Christ.

On this note, and in defense of Jesus Christ resurrection do I write this biblical evidences that  shows indeed that Jesus died and Rose from the dead.

7 Evidences To That Jesus Christ Rose From Death

1. Prophetic Declarations Assured His Death And Resurrection

It has been prophesied by the prophets that the messiah will come and He will die and the third day rise again for the redemption of His people. Isaiah 53:10. 

Not only the prophets, Jesus Christ Himself, many a times told his disciples that the son of man will be delivered up to death and the third day he shall rise again.

Luke 24:44-46
44 Then he said to them, "These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled."
45 Then he opened their minds to understand the Scriptures,
46  and said to them, "Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead,

The truth indeed is that, the word of the Lord will not go without fulfilling its purpose. 
We see here that all the things that had been said by the prophets about the messiah actually came to pass.

2.  Jesus Was Actually Executed Publicly

7 Proofs To Believe that Jesus rose from death

By the actions of the Pharisees, followed by the shouting and screaming of angry crowd was Jesus dragged to the Governor for execution, through various false witnesses summoned by the Teachers of the Law.

By the approval of Pontius Pilate, public execution assured the death of Jesus Christ. 
The fact that Jesus Christ actually was crucified is a stone throw to believing that He indeed rose from the dead. He was nailed to the cross in between two criminals.

The Fact that, he was buried in the tomb of a rich man (Joseph of Arimathea) was an proof that He was killed and laid in the tomb.

3. The Tomb Was Found To Be Empty

Matthew 27:62-64
62  Now the next day, that followed the day of the preparation, the chief priests and Pharisees came together unto Pilate,
63  Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again.
64 Command therefore that the sepulchre be made sure until the third day, lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.

Despite the Pharisees Effort in securing the Tomb by the Romans soldiers, the tomb was found empty.
On the first day of the week (the Sabbath) at early dawn, the scripture says that; some women went with spices to preserve the body and on getting their the stone covering the tomb being a very big stone had been rolled away by an Angel of the Lord. Mark 16:1-8

Meanwhile, by the quaking and the appearance of the Angel the Guards were terrified and became as dead. 

And after the events the guards reported to the Pharisees who later gave them money in other not tell any man the incidence that happened. 
Matthew 28: 11-15. The Emptiness of the Tomb is another legal proof of Jesus Christ resurrection.

4. The Grave Cloth Was Found

After the women witnesses the dramatic event that occurs, they themselves were sore afraid, yet happy, of which they rushed back to the other disciples and told them what has happened. 
Matthew 28:8 So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples.

On hearing this, Peter rose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking, he saw the linen cloth by themselves, the very linen cloth that was used to rap and bind Jesus was found right inside the tomb. Luke 24:10-12

Acts 1:3 He presented himself alive to them after his suffering by many proofs, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God.

Various physical appearance of Jesus Christ to the disciples and may witnesses are more fallible proof of His resurrection.
Jesus appeared to peter, to the twelve Disciples and about 500 witnesses many of who are still alive to witness the occurrence. 1 Corinthians 15:5-8
Lastly; he appeared to Paul in a vision on his way to Damascus. The same Paul that has for a long time been a persecutor or the way and the truth, caught in a vision and later became a living witness of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

6.         Dramatic Change Of The Disciples And Other Witnesses

Dramatic change in the life of the disciples is one of such reasons to believe Jesus rose from the dead. 
The disciples who had lost hope and were scattered abroad few days after His death, were soon plunged into a dramatic change that changes the course of the gospel after seeing Jesus Christ physical with their own eyes.

Their heart became strong again and they who had been running from the teachers of the law were soon seen in the temples and synagogues preaching and proclaiming that the Jesus Christ that they crucified was raised again.

Dramatic indeed is it that; the very first witnesses attempt by Apostle Peter, over 3,000 people were added into the church the very day.

Furthermore, as a result of these preaching and teachings many of the disciples were persecuted, many were killed in various form, yet, the Bible says, they did not relent neither were they moved to renounce their faith, but boldness and utterances is what they prayed for in other to effectively preached the risen Christ.

Acts 5:42 And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 11:25 Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;

7. The Authority Of The Name Of Jesus

7 Proofs To Believe Jesus rose from death

Acts 4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.

The authority in the Name of Jesus put into action by the apostles is one of such infallible reasons to believe that Jesus rose from the dead.

For in the name of Jesus Christ, the Apostles cast out demons, heal the sick, raised the dead and all manners of deformities bow to the name.

Philippians 2:8-11
8         And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
9          Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10        That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11        And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Even these days entirely, Jesus is alive, many mighty, miraculous signs are been performed by faith in His name. Glory to God.

In summary, the evidence for Jesus' resurrection includes the eyewitness accounts of Jesus' post-resurrection appearances, the empty tomb, the transformation of the disciples, and the growth of the early church. 
Despite skepticism and challenges to the historical accuracy of the Bible, belief in Jesus' resurrection remains a foundational tenet of the Christian faith and provides hope and assurance of eternal life.
