NT Wright: Why Jesus' resurrection really happened

Tom Wright explains why, as an ancient historian, the resurrection of Jesus from death makes historical sense.

"Dead people don't come back to life. We know that, and they knew that", says NT Wright in this interview.

Professor NT Wright is one of the world's leading New Testament scholars. In this clip, he tells Premier's Justin Brierley why Christians trusted from day one that Jesus had truly resurrected.

According to a recent poll, 25% of UK Christians deny the resurrection. Click here to read a response by Andrew Hamilton-Thomas
