A Giant Review
Here's a treat for holy week: Deane Galbraith's review of Casey's Jesus of Nazareth, focusing particularly on the book's final chapter, "Did Jesus Rise from the Dead?" The review will be served up in seven parts, one for each day this week, and I'll link to them as they roll out. Readers may recall that Casey placed at #4 on my top-10 pick list.
Part 1: Countering the dominance of conservative apologetic works in New Testament studies
Part 2: The Empty Tomb is not Historical
Part 3: The Gospel of Mark's Missing Ending
Part 4: Inconsistencies and Deliberate Changes in the Gospel Post-Resurrection Accounts
Part 5: Did Jesus consider himself to be "The Son of Man"?
Part 6: Women Witnesses to the Empty Tomb and Their Significance
Part 7: Visionary Experiences of Jesus' Resurrection
