The Resurrection

Francis Schüssler Fiorenza

Oxford University Press

Francis Schüssler Fiorenza develops a fundamental theological approach to Jesus’ resurrection that takes seriously the contemporary critique of foundationalism. He first discusses two different contemporary approaches within fundamental theology to the resurrection of Jesus: one emphasizing probability and combining internal and external reasons, the other focusing on the life of Jesus. After analysing two distinct genre of New Testament testimonies, hymnic material, and appearances narratives, he treats the importance and function of the testimony not only as an avenue of openness to transcendence, but also as a key for the interpretation of the New Testament texts. He concludes with reflections on the nature of metaphor, historical reconstruction, hermeneutical interpretation, and the relations between the object and ground of faith.
