The resurrection hypothesis states that ‘God raised Jesus from the dead’. However, there is nothing about the claim “God exists” that predicts a resurrection. One must also add the claim that God wants to raise Jesus from the dead. But the problem is that there is nothing in our background knowledge that expects that God (if God exists) would desire to raise Jesus.
Even if God wanted to raise Jesus from the dead, there is nothing about this that entails an empty tomb, post-mortem appearances, etc. God can raise Jesus from the dead without there being an empty tomb. In addition, God can raise Jesus without Jesus appearing to others. Thus, we would also need to add the auxiliary hypothesis that Jesus would appear to his disciples. However, it’s far from clear that a resurrected Jesus would want to appear to his followers. Even if we could come up with a plausible motive, we’d have to admit that we are engaging in pure speculation. Thus, it’s often assumed that the hypothesis of “God raised Jesus from the dead” just obviously explains all the supposed facts (the facts surrounding Jesus’s death). However, I think this is far from apparent.
In addition, as we have seen, the supposed resurrection hypothesis is not as simple as one might have originally thought. In other words, one must add the claims that God would want to raise Jesus, and Jesus would want to appear to his followers.
Nevertheless invoking God as an explanation isn’t even simple to begin with. Apart from the problem of figuring out God’s motives and intentions, we also have the problem of appealing to supernaturalism. How do supernatural things work? And why would we ever want to appeal to this whole new class of entities to explain something? It should be stated that even if “God raising Jesus” is the best explanation, it doesn’t follow that the explanation is probably true. It also doesn’t mean that the resurrection hypothesis is more believable than the disjunction of naturalistic hypotheses .
Finally, one can’t just cherry pick the facts. One must also take into account facts that are utterly surprising if Christianity were true. For instance, where did Jesus go? Did Jesus go up into space? Or, is Jesus just good at hiding? And why has nobody seen a physical appearance of Jesus in over 2,000 years? There is nothing surprising about nobody seeing Jesus if Christianity is false. Cherry picking the facts is what conspiracy theorists do.
 One also wonders why “God raised Jesus from the dead” would be the best supernaturalistic explanation.
