N. T. Wright on the Resurrection

As we celebrate the birth of Jesus this Christmas season, there are so many things to think about and contemplate. And although Pascha is still a ways off, I feel compelled to share with you two of N. T. Wright's article/lectures on "The Resurrection." Indeed, I discovered Wright years ago, and I have ploughed through all of his works to my great benefit. It is refreshing to see that conservative scholars like Wright - at least with regard to "Jesus Studies" - are setting new frontiers in historical studies, frontiers that only confirm the Gospel record.

For this reason I am sharing with you two key article/lectures from Wright's personal website. (I have linked his personal website below in the right-hand column under the category "Scholars' Personal Websites"). Anyway, read this wonderful, insightful, and original article on "The Resurrection of Jesus" and please peruse his website. Your spirit will only become the richer for it. A final note: In addition to the articles below (and his website), clear your desk and read his monumental tome "The Resurrection of the Son of God" (2004). This is the definitive work on the resurrection to this date.
