Although Dr. William Lane Craig has presented 10 points of evidence in his research/books re the empty tomb, because of time constraints he outlines only several of these here in this video.

Luke and John seem to mention two. Is there a contradiction here, and if so, does it invalidate the reliability of the Resurrection accounts? Let’s begin by examining the descriptions offered in the New Testament…” For complete article click here.
