The founder of Prison Fellowship Ministries, the late Chuck Colson,  a former Nixon senior advisor sent to prison over Watergate, once said that Watergate was proof of the resurrection.

“I know the resurrection is a fact, and Watergate proved it to me. How? Because 12 men testified they had seen Jesus raised from the dead, then they proclaimed that truth for 40 years, never once denying it. Every one was beaten, tortured, stoned and put in prison. They would not have endured that if it weren’t true. Watergate embroiled 12 of the most powerful men in the world-and they couldn’t keep a lie for three weeks. You’re telling me 12 apostles could keep a lie for 40 years? Absolutely impossible.”

Very true, and nobody would knowingly die for a lie either.
