Opening statement only.

It is reasonable, logical or valid to believe in the resurrection.

What is one explanation it would be logical?

When you're a Christian. It's reasonable or correct or valid to hold that belief.

If you believe in or administer baptisms, it is logical.

If you believe in the death of Christ, it logically follows to believe in the Resurrection also.

There can be no resurrection without death.

When you understand the doctrine of salvation wanting it, it'd be reasonable to believe in the resurrection.

Thus far I have shown it is reasonable from a theist point.

But reasonable nonetheless.

As far as for everyone one else, would it be reasonable?

I guess that's what the opposing side will work out.
