Whitley writes in his newJournal: “It’s Palm Sunday and time to begin, once again, aremarkable journey. Over the next week we will relive aseries of events that have been revered and disputed for twothousand years, the passion and resurrection of Christ. Ihave often heard Christians say, ‘if I did not believe inthe resurrection, I could not be a Christian,’ or, ‘I havefaith because Christ rose again.’ However, there is nothingin the gospel that ‘proves’ the resurrection according tomodern standards of evidence, and I don’t think it’snecessary to believe anything in order to have faith. To me,the words of Christ are enough. Even if there was noresurrection, I would still be a Christian. Even if no Jesusever actually walked the earth, I would still be aChristian.”
