From a historical standpoint, it is my opinion that one of the best pieces of evidence is the Lucan tradition which includes the Acts of the Apostles. In fact, there is some debate on the historical reliability among people like Bart Ehrman for this reason. https://ehrmanblog.org/acts-of-the-apostles/
One of my Dad's old friends has become an agnostic in his old age, I went over to his house with my brother and nephew. He started to speak to us about how the gospel writers made up the resurrection of Jesus. George didn't know that I have my Masters in Theology-Sacred Scripture. I said, well George, the problem with that hypothesis is that you still have to contend with the Letters of St. Paul that discusses the resurrection of Jesus , which secular scholarship admits is earlier than the gospels. So, the gospel writers couldn't have been the origin.
George was surprised at my objection and the matter was dropped.
