(p.96) III The Resurrection as an Eschatological Event
The Structure of Resurrection Belief

Carnley Peter

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses an approach to the structure of resurrection belief that is quite different and antithetical from those of Westcott and Pannenberg. Instead of understanding the resurrection faith as the judgement of Christians built on the authoritative statements of historical fact asserting the resurrection of Christ, it argues that the response of faith is not based on the historical interpretation of the resurrected Christ but rather on the commitment of obedience and trust in response to what is understood as the call or Word of God. The thoughts of the Reformed theologians Karl Barth and Rudolf Bultmann on the resurrection, wherein they both asserted that resurrection belief is grounded on the acknowledgement of a believer on the experience of salvation, are also discussed.
