In 1846 dr. Simon Greenleaf wrote a 3 volume work called A treatise on the laws of evidence.
This work is considered to be one of the single most important authorities on the legal procedure for handling and examining evidence in a court of law.
Dr. Greenleaf examined the historical evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ to see if the internal evidence of the scriptures about Jesus death and resurrection were true or false.
The results are contained in a book that Dr. Greenleaf wrote called An examination of the testimony of the four evangelist by the rules of evidence administered in the courts of justice.
Dr. Greenleaf came to the striking conclusion that according to the same rules that are used in a court of law to examine evidence, there is more evidence for the historical resurrection of Jesus Christ than any other event in all of human history.
