"there were several witnesses "I doubt if the resurrection was entirely physical because the physical body had been badly beaten and mutilated. But since there were several witnesses, I am sure it occurred in some way that it appeared to be physical. So Jesus probably appeared in some other body that looked just like his original body but probably was an apparition.
1 Corinthians 15:3-8 "and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me."
You want statements about witnesses of the resurrection to be from Jesus?The verses of " 1 Corinthians 15:3-8 " are not from (Jesus) Yeshua- the Israelite Messiah, please, right?:
Holy Bible King James Version (Red Letter Edition)
The Roman Catholic Holy Bible with the words of Jesus in red.
World Messianic Bible
Why leave Yeshua- the Israelite Messiah and take guidance from Hellenist Paul who faked/forged a vision and self styled himself as an Apostle, please, right? Wasn't Paul a hoax, please, as he never was in the company of Yeshua- the truthful Israelite Messiah, please, right??
Does one find faults with Yeshua and does not consider him worthy to quote from him for guidance , please? Right?
Note: "Jesus did not die a cursed death on the Cross", one gets to know from many clues in the Gospels itself, please. Right?
I believe you don't have shred of evidence to support that view.Physical resurrection or Ascension of Jesus- the truthful Israelite Messiah, never took place, isn't it a misconception of the Christians people who have been mislead by the Hellenist Paul, please?
That there is hope that those who accept his purpose on the cross, will also be resurrected as he was.
It's mythology; a story, just like the stories of Narnia or Middle Earth.Jesus has risen. No one answers how the tomb his body was lain in was empty days after the crucifixion. If it was not empty the claim that he had risen would have been disproved, many were around wanting to do that.
Each Gospel gives a different account, and none of them have any supporting evidence.That there were witnesses saying they had seen him risen appearing to them, who were martyred for their witness, makes a claim that those disciples had stolen his body and made their profession about him not believable. Lives were changed, it is far more believable that God raised him, as cowardly disciples were really changed, and just later was it seen many prophecies were fulfilled with Jesus and his death and resurrection.
