Descrizione prodotto


This book, third in Wright's series Christian Origins and the Question of God, sketches a map of ancient beliefs about life after death, in both the Greco-Roman and Jewish worlds. It then highlights the fact that the early Christians' belief about the afterlife belonged firmly on the Jewish spectrum, while introducing several new mutations and sharper definitions. This, together with other features of early Christianity, forces the historian to read the Easter narratives in the gospels, not simply as late rationalizations of early Christian spirituality, but as accounts of two actual events: the empty tomb of Jesus and his "appearances."

5.0 su 5 stelle How did other peoples viewed Resurrection.....well foot noted and easier to read then you might expect.. 30 aprile 2017

I ordered this book by NT Wright to peek into the reality of the Resurrection from the perspective of living in those days. NT Wright in his writings does that for me. I am Catholic and believe to my very soul in the Resurrection of Christ. I wanted to learn just how those peoples living then thought or even may have perceived that fact. Dr. Wright is able to document for me those possible realities.

Wright, in this book, demonstrates his extraordinary erudition. He is not a zealous Christian apologist but a scholar, so he will not assert something without adequate evidence. He writes that he takes the "critical realist position" of historiography, stating "I am simply concerned to be absolutely sure, here of all places, that I do not appear to smuggle into my historical argument anything more than it will bear" (614).

Do not buy his book if you're looking for a collection of refutations of skeptical arguments. This book is a thorough historical investigation. Wright examines, among many other things, the "range of options for belief about the dead" that existed for people "roughly two or three hundred years either side of the time of Jesus" (39). Christianity, according to Wright, was born into a world where its central claim--the claim that Jesus was raised from the dead--was assumed to be false because it entailed something that everyone assumed to be impossible (35). If there was going to be some kind of resurrection, it would happen only at the end of history, when everyone (or at least the righteous ones) would be raised at the same time. The best explanation for the early Christian belief, he proposes, is that Jesus in fact bodily rose from the dead.

This book is, in essence, a word study on the word "resurrection." Much more than what Wright presents can be said about the resurrection, and other historians have developed arguments that are perhaps more effective. Although Wright is perhaps more authoritative and educated on this topic, he does not present the evidence as persuasively as he could have. Nevertheless, a reading of this book makes it obvious why many professional Biblical scholars consider this book the most important book on the resurrection.

Buy this book only if you are willing to spend lots of time reading about obscure writings of the ancient world, such as those of the Hellenists or ancient Egyptians or Babylonians. Of course, if these topics fascinate you, you will love this book.

Nicholas Thomas Wright (born 1948) is an Anglican bishop (Bishop of Durham from 2003-2010), and is currently Research Professor at St Mary's College in Scotland. This volume is the first in a projected five-part series: the other published parts are The New Testament and the People of God Vol. 1 and Jesus and the Victory of God Vol. 2; he has written many other books such as Who Was Jesus?, The Challenge of Jesus, The Original Jesus, The Contemporary Quest for Jesus, etc.

He wrote in the Preface to this 2003 book, "This book started life as the final chapter of 'Jesus and the Victory of God'... A few months before I finished work on 'Jesus and the Victory of God' ...[my publisher] came to see me to say that... I had an absolute maximum number of pages available... [JVG] would have burst out of its own new covers... As providence would have it, I was at the same time turning over in my mind the choice of topic for the Shaffer Lectures at Yale Divinity School... The two problems solved each other: miss out the resurrection chapter in JVG, lecture on resurrection in Yale, and turn the three lectures into a small book... (This had the unexpected result that some reviewers of JVG accused me of not ... believing in Jesus' resurrection. I trust that this accusation may now be laid to rest.)" (Pg. xv-xvi) He later added, "The shape of the book is thus determined by the two main sub-questions into which the principal question divides: what did the early Christians think had happened to Jesus, and what can we say about the plausibility of those beliefs?" (Pg. 6)

He observes, "One of the most striking features of the early Christian movement is its virtual unanimity about the future hope. We might have expected that the first Christians would quickly have developed a spectrum of beliefs about life after death, corresponding to the spectrums we have observed in Judaism from within which Christianity emerged and the paganism into which it went as a missionary movement; but they did not." (Pg. 209) He asserts, "what the creator god did for Jesus is both the MODEL and the MEANS of what he will do for all Jesus' people." (Pg. 316)

He summarizes, "The central argument of this Part of the book is now complete. The future hope of the early Christians is focused, in a thoroughly Jewish way, on resurrection; but it has been redefined beyond anything that Judaism had said, or indeed would say later. But it is not only belief in resurrection which has been simultaneously reaffirmed and redefined... the early Christian belief about that person himself shows signs of a parallel redefinition. This provides in turn... powerful supporting evidence for the early Christian belief about what had happened to him." (Pg. 553) He concludes, "the historian, of whatever persuasion, has no option but to affirm both the empty tomb and the 'meetings' with Jesus as 'historical events'... they took place as real events; they were significant events; they are, in the normal sense required by historians, provable events; historians can and should write about them." (Pg. 709)

Wright's books are some of the most fascinating being written among Jesus/Early Church researchers.

N.T. Wright is a rare combination of a brilliant scholar who can write so that non-scholars can understand. This book, like most of his, is nothing less than illuminating.

I have finally finished all three volumes of Wright's sentinel work. This by far was the best. This work deals specifically with the resurrection of Jesus from a historical, mythological, and theological standpoint. Dr Wright reviews resurrection theology from its Hebrew origins to its place as the central pillar of christian belief. He compares and contrasts life after death beliefs in other cultures to what the early christians believed. It certainly differs from what we conceptually hold to be true about life after death. But, Wright has a habit of setting our misconceptions straight. This is the pinnacle of his career. Reading this volume will certainly prove to be worth the time invested.
