For Trypho, the crucifixion "remains to prove"

Trypho: This point has been proved to me forcibly, and by many arguments, my friend. It remains, then, to prove that He submitted to become man by the Virgin, according to the will of His Father; and to be crucified, and to die. Prove also clearly, that after this He rose again and ascended to heaven.

This remembers me this article of David W. Smith:

I believe in:
N -God, the Father Almighty
N -Creator of Heaven and Earth;
N -and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:
N -Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
N -born of the Virgin Mary;
? -suffered under Pontius Pilate,
? -was crucified, died and was buried.
N -He descended into Hell;
N -the third day He rose again from the dead;
N -He ascended into Heaven,
N -is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
N -from thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. ... t-928.html
