According to Terry Miethe, a Christian philosopher at Oxford University, the question "'Did Jesus rise from the dead? The Apostolic Fathers, discussed the death and resurrection of Jesus, including Ignatius (50–115), [243] Polycarp (69–155), and Justin Martyr (100–165).

According to Ehrman, "what was originally a vague statement that the unnamed Jewish leaders buried Jesus becomes a story of one leader in particular, who is named, doing so. The New Testament writings contend that the resurrection was "the beginning of His exalted life" [171] [note 19] as Christ and Lord. For David says concerning him, “‘ I saw the Lord always before me, for he is at my right hand that I may not be shaken; therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced; my flesh also will dwell in hope. The Truth I point to is not confined within any religious point of view, belief system, or doctrine, but is open to all and found within all. The Apostle Paul taught that the resurrection is the glorious centerpiece to all the banqueting table of redemptive history.After the Sabbath close Sabbath The seventh day of the week and a day of rest for Jews (Shabbat is Friday sunset to Saturday sunset). Through resurrection, Christians believe life has triumphed over death, good over evil, hope over despair. Scholars differ on the historicity of the empty tomb story and the relation between the burial stories and the postmortem appearances.

Josephus tells of the three main Jewish sects of the 1st century AD, that the Sadducees held that both soul and body perished at death; the Essenes that the soul was immortal but the flesh was not; and the Pharisees that the soul was immortal and that the body would be resurrected to house it.

To the utter dismay of violent antagonists, lengthy imprisonments following kangaroo court trials were but leisurely catechetical periods resulting in faith in Jesus by the highest officials in the realm. Dunn argues that the burial tradition is "one of the oldest pieces of tradition we have," referring to 1 Cor. Later beliefs shifted the exaltation to his baptism, birth, and subsequently to the idea of his eternal existence, as witnessed in the Gospel of John.

Secular and liberal Christian scholarship asserts that religious experiences, [5] such as the visionary appearances of Jesus [6] [7] [8] [note 3] and an inspired reading of the Biblical texts, [9] gave the impetus to the belief in the exaltation of Jesus [10] as a "fulfillment of the scriptures," [11] and a resumption of the missionary activity of Jesus's followers.

According to Newbigin, "Paul presents himself not as the teacher of a new theology but as the messenger commissioned by the authority of the Lord himself to announce a new fact – namely that in the ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus God has acted decisively to reveal and effect his purpose of redemption for the whole world. According to Vermes, "[t]he strictly Jewish bond of spirit and body is better served by the idea of the empty tomb and is no doubt responsible for the introduction of the notions of palpability (Thomas in John) and eating (Luke and John). Cynthia is a member of the GPIW (Global Peace Initiative for Women) Contemplative Council and recipient of the 2014 Contemplative Voices award from Shalem Institute.In 1 Corinthians 15:44, [133] Paul uses the phrase "spiritual body" ( sōma pneumatikos), [web 6] which has been explained as a "Spirit-empowered body," [132] [web 5] [web 7] but also as a "celestial body," made of a finer material than the flesh. The apostles, who were eye-witnesses to the risen Christ, experienced dramatic changes in their lives after meeting him, ruling out the possibility that the resurrection story is an invented one. The resurrection made it possible for Christians to receive the power of Christ's life living inside of them (Romans 6:1–10; Philippians 1:21; Galatians 2:20). An early symbol of the resurrection was the wreathed Chi Rho (Greek letters representing the word "Khristos" or "Christ"), whose origin traces to the victory of emperor Constantine I at the Battle of the Milvian Bridge in 312, which he attributed to the use of a cross on the shields of his soldiers. This Faith, a gift of God, will bring you the same hope: a “living hope” that dispatches golden beams of hope through the claustrophobic fog of despair.
