McDowell: Only Christianity has empty tomb

All but four of the major world religions are based on mere philosophical propositions. Of the four that are based on personalities rather than philosophies, only Christianity claims an empty tomb for its founder. In 1900 B.C. Judaism’s Father Abraham died. In 483 B.C., Buddhist writings say Buddha died “with that utter passing away in which nothing whatever remains behind.” June 6, 632 A.D., Mohammed died. In 33 A.D., Jesus died but came back to life appearing to 500 people over a period of 40 days."And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.” (I Corinthians 15:14).
