After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. – 1 Corinthians 15:6 (NIV)

When the apostle Paul was writing this shortly after the resurrection, he was making an amazing offer to those who may have doubted the empty tomb of Christ: If you don’t think that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead, there are many eyewitnesses of the risen Christ. Just ask them! These were smaller communities. If the resurrection of Christ could have been challenged, that was the time to do it. But the resurrection of Jesus Christ is the most recorded event of ancient history. There was no personal benefit for the people who saw this miracle. They recorded it because it happened.
