Parchment & Pen, C. Michael Patton explained that "there are certain things that I would look for and expect if the resurrection of Christ actually took place." Conveniently, the things he would look for and expect line up quite well with the things that he finds in the New Testament. Who'd a thunk it? Happily, he didn't expect anything inconvenient like independent accounts of the events from secular historians.
I couldn't help but think of Margaret O'Brien's line from Meet Me in St. Louis: "Wasn't I lucky to be born in my favorite city?"
