    And evidence. The personal testimony of Paul is that he was confronted on
    the road to Damascus by the risen Christ. Then his life did an abrupt
    about face.

    Matthew, John and Peter were in the group of disciples when Christ appeared
    and showed them the proof of His resurrection. Each wrote of the
    resurrection. And all but John were martyred for their belief.

    Testimony is evidence. Blind faith not required.
