Is the resurrection of Jesus Christ a true, historical event?

The answers provided seem to implicitly conflate two issues: an ontological issue (did it happen?) and an epistemological one (how strong does the evidence seem to you?) Someone might believe very firmly that the resurrection was a bona fide historical event, but think that the evidence is poor, for example. (She simply finds herself believing that it happened, or trusts the Bible's accounts because she was taught to as a child, etc.) Maybe few AiA visitors would answer that way, but I think many Christians would.

The Lord's Servant must not quarrel; instead, he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. Those who oppose him he must gently instruct, in the hope that God will give them a change of heart leading to a knowledge of the truth
