Top Ten Myths About the Resurrection

I recently read a book entitled "The Case for the Resurrection of Jesus" by Dr. Mike Licona and Dr. Gary Habermas. The book itself is a great read and makes a fairly strong case for the resurrection and provides a lot of good historical information, definitely worth the read. Today I stumbled upon a 10 part mini-series by Dr. Licona advocating a new DVD series he and Michael Patton made that examines many of the claims against the resurrection made by skeptics. I'm posting links to their videos here because I think they're worth watching to get a general idea of a few of the criticisms made by skeptics and a few of the answers offered by scholars and apologists. The videos are only about 2 minutes each so they take no time at all to watch. Licona's book does go into many of these claims pretty in-depth, so I would recommend these ten videos as a starting point only, and further investigation is no doubt necessary.
