Michael Licona vs. Dale Martin: Did Jesus Physically Rise From the Dead? - Apologetics 315
Recently Brian Auten posted Dr Michael Licona's debate with Dr Dale Martin on the whether or not Jesus was physically raised from dead or does the Resurrection mean something else. It was really interesting. I think it strange that someone can claim to be a Christian and re-interpret the New Testament such that Jesus' Resurrection was not physical. This was Dale Martin's position, but I don''t agree. I think Dr Licona did a good job in dialoguing with him. But I don't think any of the first or second generation of Christians who were following Jesus would have understood the Resurrection the way he does.
