Evidence for the Resurrection of Christ

Evidence for the Resurrection of Christ by Peter Kreeft and Ronald K. Tacelli:
There are five possible theories: Christianity, hallucination, myth, conspiracy and swoon.
1Jesus diedJesus roseChristianity
2Jesus diedJesus didn't rise—apostles deceivedHallucination
3Jesus diedJesus didn't rise—apostles myth-makersMyth
4Jesus diedJesus didn't rise—apostles deceiversConspiracy
5Jesus didn't dieSwoon
There are no other possibilities. 
"Myth" in this context means the resurrection stories are not historically true but are intended as narratives of morality and religious meaning; not lies, per se, since pedagogy was the intent, not overt deception.
