A Short Orientation
We are going to look at the resurrection of Jesus from four different directions.
In Chapter 1 we carry out a critical examination of the New Testament resurrection stories.
In Chapter 2 we ask what history and archaeology have to say about the authenticity of the traditional locations of the resurrection appearances.
In Chapter 3 we examine what post-Vatican II Catholic theology has to say about the bodily resurrection of Jesus, and our own.
In Chapter 4 we see what philosophy and theology can tell us about the inner nature of the resurrection body of Jesus.
In short, Chapters 1 and 2 allow us to become intimately acquainted with the resurrection stories and their settings, and evaluate how reasonable it is to believe in them. Chapters 3 and 4 allow us to ask what the bodily resurrection of Jesus means.
While this book stands alone, it finds its companion and wider context in Exploring the Christian Mysteries I: Can Christians Still Believe? especially Chapter 4 of that book, “The Jesus of History and the Jesus of Faith.”
