Jesus and the Resurrection around the Blogosphere

Crypto-Theology asks whom Paul was referring to in 1 Corinthians 15, when he said some deny the resurrection of the dead. N. T. Wrong continues surveying the topic of visions of the resurrection. Phil Harland offers Jesus’ baptism by John as an event with a high probability of being historical. All those posts should be included in the next Biblical Studies Carnival, which will be at Metacatholic.

Chris Brady doesn’t ultimately answer the question of animals having an afterlife, but he does share a fake but still funny church sign dialogue on the subject.

    Animal and soul I wrote on years ago – but animal and afterlife! Well how about Ecclesiastes on this question – who knows (3:21) whether the spirit of a child of the dust goes up and up and the spirit of a beastie declines down to the earth?מִי יוֹדֵעַ, רוּחַ בְּנֵי הָאָדָם–הָעֹלָה הִיא, לְמָעְלָה; וְרוּחַ, הַבְּהֵמָה–הַיֹּרֶדֶת הִיא, לְמַטָּה לָאָרֶץ. And you don’t have to know Hebrew to figure out just what speculation is around on the issue of resurrection – a pox on all their houses!If anyone enters into his death, that one will know about resurrection – with all the ambivalence possible in the human spirit. And if anyone has a dog and is slightly dyslexic, that one will know that dogs are gods in their own sphere and like any self-respecting donkey can tell you the word of God – at least that you are loved – ut animalia viderent dominum natum – that’s in Job too but I forget where;-). And if Leviathan is God’s pet (see Job 41), you can rest assured that God will not give it up in the age to come.
