The gospel accounts of Jesus’ death and resurrection are dismissed by many as fiction, but some details don’t make sense if this was the case. One such detail is when blood AND water came out of Jesus’ side after His side was pierced:
But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs: But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water. (John 19:33-34)
If someone was making this up why would they add water to the description? It’s only with our deeper medical understanding do we know that this is feasible, two thousand years ago they didn’t even know this was medically possible! The straightforward explanation is that John was simply describing what he was witnessing. It’s these small details that can provide the strongest evidence!
