HOAX?

   Posted by: pastordiehl    in Uncategorized

In 1957, Lieutenant David Steeves walked out of California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains 54 days after his Air Force trainer jet had disappeared. He told an unbelievable tale of how he had lived in a snowy wilderness after parachuting from his disabled plane. By the time he showed up alive, he had already been declared officially dead. When further research failed to turn up the wreckage, a hoax was suspected and Steeves was forced to resign under a cloud of doubt. More than 20 years later, however, his story was confirmed when a troop of Boy Scouts discovered the wreckage of his plane.

This reminds me of another survival story recorded in the Bible. Jesus had been executed, pronounced dead, and buried. But on the third day He appeared alive again. Religious leaders shouted “Hoax!” but hundreds of people saw him and talked with him. He disappeared again and hasn’t been seen since. But He will come again for those who believe in Him. Now that’s a survival story!

He also presented Himself alive after His suffering by many infallible proofs (Acts 1:3).
