The Resurrection of Jesus: What Did and Didn't Happen?

May 21, 2017
Professor Thomas Sheehan
Professor, Department of Religious Studies, Stanford University
St. Paul says that if Christ is not risen, our faith is in vain.
But do we know what is meant by the resurrection of Christ? It may
be a bit more complicated -- and surprising -- than people generally
believe.
 
In this talk we will review the best contemporary scripture scholarship
on resurrection in order to ask: What do we mean when we affirm in
faith that Christ is risen?
