In other words, many people say that the apostles made up the whole story. But people only make things up to get some gain out of it, like women, fame, money, popularity, power, and the like. But all that the Apostles got was imprisonment, torture, and eventually death. Nobody dies for a lie! There was no good reason for the Apostles to make up this story. Not to mention that they were writing within the first century, in the time of eyewitnesses where other people could verify or disprove their claims. So the fact that people say the apostles made it up is a conspiracy theory void of facts and nothing more.
