Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. The early confrontation between traditional exegesis and the scientific approach, which initially consciously separated itself from faith and at times even opposed it, was assuredly painful; later however it proved to be salutary: Once the method was freed from external prejudices, it led to a more precise understanding of the truth of sacred Scripture (cf. "Dei Verbum," 12).

Now the noteworthy feature of this whole dispute is not the historicity of the guards but rather the presupposition of both parties that the body was missing. Later in verse 84, Muhammad gives himself the divine order to fight. The sacred mission was to populate and subdue the earth. They are: Jesus died by crucifixion, he was buried in a tomb known to the authorities, his disciples were distraught because of his death, his tomb was found empty, the disciples believed that they saw Jesus risen from the grave, this experience changed their lives, the message was central to early church teachings, and it was preached in the very city in which Jesus died (Miethe, Did Jesus Rise from the Dead?, p. 19, 20).

You see, it would have been very natural for first-century Jews, especially if they bad belonged to a kingdom-of-God movement already, to say of a leader who had paid the ultimate penalty at the hands of the authorities, that his soul was in the band of God, that he was alive to God, that he had been exalted to paradise, and that be was therefore among the righteous who had been unjustly put to death but who would rise again to rule the world in God’s good time. (This is, of course, exactly what Wisdom 3:1-9 does say?) And if Jesus’ followers had indeed had a sense that he was alive in a nonphysical way, and even that he was still present with them in some fashion, this is how they would have expressed it.

Graetz and Geiger understood Jesus as part of Jewish history. For dates in English history falling in the interval between January 1st and March 25th, scholars often designate the "year" using a convention acknowledging the two different markings of the turn of the year (e.g., as 14 February 1710/11), which would, however, correspond to 25 February 1711 in countries using the Gregorian calendar. If this is the case, is not the Bible all we need as the foundation of Christian ethics?

Evil is rampant not merely within paganism but within Israel: from the oppressive regime of the chief priests to the populist revolutionary movements, the world’s evil has radically infected Israel also. Moreover, the Jewish community at large did not seem troubled by the presence of these anthropomorphic expressions in their scripture, until the onslaught of Greek philosophy especially in the first century bc. Like the gnostic sources, we therefore are cautious in our use of this source.

Methodology and sources uses are well documented. But in Jesus' resurrection, God raised just a single man. The source for this Qur’anic fiction is found in the earlier Thomas’ Gospel of the Infancy of Jesus Christ, another apocryphal fable from the 2nd century:Qur’an- sura 3:49: “And (appoint him [Jesus]) a messenger to the Children of Israel, (with this message): ‘I have come to you, with a sign from your Lord, in that I make for you out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by Allah’s leave…” Thomas’ Gospel of the Infancy of Jesus Christ: “Then he took from the bank of the stream some soft clay, and formed out of it twelve sparrows…Then Jesus clapping together the palms of his hands called to the sparrows, and said to them: ‘Go, fly away.'” There are Qur’anic accounts which deal with heaven and hell, which have no parallels with our Biblical accounts.

Death creates a “death,” resurrection creates a “resurrection.” Whether in the primordial or higher world setting, the spiritual model sets the pattern for the earthly copies. In the final part of this lecture, let me quickly review some of the options that have been canvassed within the debate. Organizational growth was incremental, and union strength was concentrated in the northern part of the state, where prohibition sentiment was strongest; attempts to establish Hispanic unions in the more southern counties met with little success.
