Resurrection of the Body

Some biblical scholars have persuaded themselves that the original "Easter event" was the recognition on the part of Jesus' disciples that Jesus was alive in God, but that the even had nothing to do with His body. I find this very strange.

The resurrection accounts were written to emphasize the resurrection of the Body of Jesus because the faith handed down to the evangelists was that He rose bodily from the dead.

It is not the "resuscitation of a corpse" any more than my present bodily life is "animation of a corpse." We don't denigrate those who have near-death experiences by calling them "resuscitated corpses" nor do we think of ourselves as "walking, talking corpses."
