The Resurrection of the Messiah

Christopher Bryan (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores what early Christians saw as—and, indeed, what truly might be—the consequences of their claim. What did it mean that they believed Christ had been raised from the dead? What difference would that make to anyone else, even if it were true? This closing part of this discourse is ‘partially unscientific’ because the book is at a point in the discussion where, although historical- and literary-critical disciplines still have a contribution to make, the book must also pass beyond the boundaries of those disciplines and raise questions that are essentially theological.
