(p.85) 6 The Tests of Content and Miracle

Richard Swinburne (Contributor Webpage)

The evidence that some purported propositional revelation does indeed come from God will be its content (that it is deep and, in so far as we can judge by independent criteria, true) and that it is authenticated in a miraculous way. A miracle is a violation of a law of nature, which God alone can bring about. Christianity (unlike Judaism, Islam, and Eastern religions) is a serious candidate for having a revelation authenticated by a miracle—the Resurrection of Jesus.
