I believe I posted something like this before and it got derailed; or rather, the issue was dodged.
A quick scenario: Let us suppose a man who is undecided on the issue of Jesus' resurrection (and for that matter, the existence of God). He wants to know in what direction the historical data points. If he is an honest thinker, does his homework, I believe the "best" naturalistic interpretation of the evidence he will find will include the following:
1) Jesus was crucified and buried in a tomb
2) The body of Jesus was stolen by a non-disciple sometime between Friday evening and Sunday morning; that is, during the Sabbath.
3) Sunday morn the tomb was discovered vacant by women disciples
4) Several days later, a large number of his disciples, individually and collectively suffered hallucinations which were consistent with each other: a) they were bodily and involved the delusion of "touch" b) they left the impression of a commission to preach a specific message which was consistent among them all
5) These disciples believed and preached that their master was raised by God, and that this event was the culmination of God's acts in history.
6) Paul persecuted the Jesus movement. He too suffered from an hallucination from which he believed he had encountered Jesus and received from him a similar vocation.
Are there better naturalistic explanations which have responsibly dealt with the data?
1) Jesus was crucified and died on the Friday before Passover.
2) The body of Jesus was turned over to his followers (Joseph and Nicodemus) that same day by the Roman governor.
3) The body of Jesus was taken to the personal tomb of Joseph to be washed and prepared because the tomb was conveniently close to the place where Jesus was crucified.(John. 19:42)
4) The body of Jesus was heavily wrapped and coated with 100 pounds mixture of aloe/myrrh.(John.19:39)
5) The entrance to Joseph's tomb was covered with a large stone and the disciples departed.(Matt.27:60)
6) The Next day (Saturday) the chief Jewish priests asked for and received permission from the roman Governor to place a guard at Joseph's tomb, which they did, also placing seals on the tomb.
7) The next morning (Sunday) Joseph's tomb proved to be open and empty.
The obvious conclusion is that the Jewish priests took possession of an already empty tomb
on Saturday. The obvious reason for the tomb to have been empty was that the body of Jesus, which was in the possession of his followers,
was already in the process of being relocated to it's actual intended final resting place. The body of Jesus was never intended to be interred in Joseph's personal brand new family crypt. Only the Taharah (ritual cleansing and wrapping) was performed. The fact that the tomb proved to be empty is conclusive proof that Joseph never intended for his tomb to be the final resting place of Jesus. Matt.28:16 indicates that the eleven remaining apostles then journeyed to Galilee, the home of their deceased friend and his family. The obvious conclusion is that the apostles and some of the early followers of Jesus transported his body, heavily wrapped and coated in aloe/myrrh resin gum to facilitate just such a trip of several days, back to Galilee.
Six week later, upon their return from Galilee, the apostles and early followers of Jesus began to spread the rumor of the "risen" Jesus as per Acts chapters 1-4. All of which proved that the fears of the Jewish priests had been exactly correct.
 lest his disciples come by night, and steal him away, and say unto the people, He is risen from the dead: so the last error shall be worse than the first.
The entire question of the missing corpse and story of the "risen" Jesus can be explained in this verse. Because exactly what the priests feared would occur is exactly what DID occur.
Except that the disciples did not have to "steal" the body. Joseph had every legal right to bury the body where ever he chose to.
Some years later Paul collapsed while on a journey to Damascus. Desperately ill, Paul was left at the the home of a Christian man to recover. During his recovery, and while being cared for and prayed over by a Christian man, Paul experienced delusions that he met with and conversed with the years dead Jesus. After his recovery Paul became a committed Christian.
