(p.45) 4 Paul
The Resurrection of the Messiah

Christopher Bryan (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines Saint Paul's account of the death and resurrection of Jesus. Paul's letters have provided a basis for subsequent theological reflection in virtually every Christian tradition, and they have been able to do this because underlying their variety of subject and expression we can discern a single fundamental and consistently held belief: namely, that the crucified Jesus is Son of God and exalted Lord. Paul's purpose in his letters is evidently not, in general, to inform his hearers about the life of Jesus but to assist and encourage them in living the life of Christian discipleship.
