The resurrection is the defining event of the Christian faith, and a single Sunday a year just isn’t enough time to unpack its significance. Here are three resources to help you focus on the importance of the resurrection all year round. They’re all on sale until the end of the month, so pick them up at a great deal while you still can.
N.T. Wright’s The Resurrection of the Son of God
One of the most important and influential works on the Resurrection ever written, Wright’s definitive work is still stirring theological conversations decades since its initial publication. Go on a fascinating journey through ancient beliefs about life after death and how it shapes our understanding of early Christians’ understanding of Jesus’ return from death.
Wright seeks the best historical conclusions about the empty tomb and the belief that Jesus really did rise bodily from the dead, recognizing that it was this belief that caused early Christians to call Jesus “Son of God.”
The Significance of the Resurrection
This insightful course on Jesus’ death and resurrection is presented by a team of respected Christian theologians, including Douglas J. Moo, Ben Witherington, Elyse Fitzpatrick, Darrell L. Bock, and Michael W. Goheen. These instructors have written multiple contemporary studies on this historical event and its significance for the Christian, and students will be able to gain the clearest insight with their guidance. Under these instructors you will discover new perspectives on the texts that are perennially used as sources of discussion on Jesus’ sacrifice and defeat of sin.
The Resurrection of Jesus: A New Historiographical Approach
The question of the historicity of Jesus’ resurrection has been repeatedly probed, investigated, and debated. And the results have varied widely.Could there be any new and promising approach to this problem?
Yes, answers Michael Licona. He convincingly points us to a significant deficiency in approaching this question: our historiographical orientation and practice. Licona opens this study with an extensive consideration of historiography and the particular problem of investigating claims of miracles. This alone is a valuable contribution.
But then Licona carefully applies his principles and methods to the question of Jesus’ resurrection. In addition to determining and working from the most reliable sources and bedrock historical evidence, he critically weighs other prominent hypotheses. His own argument is a challenging and closely argued case for the historicity of the resurrection of Jesus, the Christ. Any future approaches to dealing with this “prize puzzle” of New Testament study will need to be routed through The Resurrection of Jesus.
