Resurrection People: Studies in the Resurrection Narratives of the Gospels

Full Product Description

'The resurrection of Jesus is the ground of the Church's being. It is the ground of every Christian's hope. The present is not everything: there is a future, and the message of the Gospels and of Jesus is that in that future we will be safe. But the future is not everything either ...The resurrection people are not just those who align themselves to what the dramatis personae in the Gospel traditions saw, they actually participate in the risen Christ, and in the new era, the future made present, which he embodies.' By uncovering the process which gave rise to the famous Gospel stories, David Catchpole opens a door into each writer's distinctive world of conviction and faith, struggle and controversy. He shows that the characters of the resurrection narratives - Jesus himself, the women and the men, the ecclesiastical heavyweights and the 'nobodies' of Christian history - embody issues which affect the 'resurrection people' of any time, including our own.
This authoritative and stimulating book tackles historical topics as well as some controversial issues in New Testament studies, while never losing sight of the question: how should Christian faith today be coloured by the living faith of the gospel writers?
