What do you believe about the accounts of healing in the NT? Or the resurrection? Do those count?
-------
They don't count as proof.


I mean, would they count if they happened, and do you think they happened?

What do you think about Matthew 27:51-53? Description of actual, historical events, or something else?

I have no reason to believe it is not historical. I accept Jesus' miracles and resurrection as historical events. There is no stretch to accept this passage, although I admit I don't understand what it adds to the faith or why it was included, at least not the zombie* part.
