In spite of a recent resurgence of interest into whether the resurrection of Jesus was natural or supernatural, historical or mythical, ‘[T]he history of Christianity deliberately holds together the earthly identity of Jesus of Nazareth with that of the risen and ascended Christ.’ ‘The reality is that: Throughout the history of Christianity, those who have affirmed Jesus’ bodily resurrection have shown differences in emphasis in the way in which they understand it. Some have seen Jesus’ resurrection as a matter of simple faith, unrelated to historical evidence or logical argumentation. Others have been convinced that an impartial consideration of the historical evidence proves Jesus’ bodily resurrection to be an actual occurrence.’
