Jesus’s Resurrection

Jesus’s Resurrection

(p.109) 6 Jesus’s Resurrection
The Miracle Myth

Columbia University Press

The lessons of the previous chapter can be applied to the New Testament account of Jesus's resurrection. Should the testimony in the New Testament be taken to justify belief that Jesus was resurrected? It fails in this task because the sources on which the New Testament depend were unreliable, and the processes by which today's version of the New Testament was produced were also unreliable. Belief in Jesus's resurrection fails to meet the proper standard of justification.
