Abstract

This article first tackles the translation of the language for the Easter appearances used in 1 Corinthians 15:5–8 and elsewhere in the New Testament. It then examines the nature of these ‘Christophanies.’ It argues that the language used by the New Testament witnesses suggests some perception with the eyes, albeit a ‘graced’ seeing, on the part of the witnesses.
