Resurrection or resuscitation?
“Resuscitations are well documented both in ancient literature and today. Such were the revivals performed by Elijah on the widow of Sarepta’s child, and by Jesus on Lazarus. A resuscitation is excellent news for the patient and family. But it is not good news that affects everyone else. It does not begin a religion. It does not transform the lives of others across the ages”
Luke Timothy Johnson, The Real Jesus
