Arguments in brief

The cosmological argument is an argument for a ‘first cause’ of the universe. Since everything that begins to exist has a cause, and our universe began to exist, it must have an original first cause. Christians call that first cause God.

The teleological argument is an argument based on the apparent design, (and fine tuning) of the universe. Apparent design can be observed in biological and mathematical, (the laws of nature) systems.

The moral argument, as William Lane Craig put it, has to do with the difference between what is good/bad and right/wrong. Good and bad have to do with the worth or value of something while right and wrong have to do with an obligation, or more specifically a moral obligation.

The ontological argument is more of a philosophical argument, and Anselm of Canterbury, who was a monk and philosopher, provided the first such argument.

The documentation for historical argument is overwhelming. No other ancient text is so supported by various manuscripts which include eyewitness accounts. Not only accounts by the Gospel writers themselves, but by other non-Christian historians.
