A roundtable discussion on Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection led by Professor Helen Bond, with Dr. Sara Parvis and me participating is available now here. Bond commences with queries about how Jesus’ corpse was handled after his crucifixion, whether it was in fact buried or simply discarded, and whether figures such as Joseph of Arimathea may have been involved.
Then we turn to questions about the traditions of the empty tomb, and also what resurrection meant in the setting of the first followers of Jesus.
Professor Bond is my colleague in Edinburgh, and now Director of our Centre for the Study of Christian Origins. Dr. Parvis is our specialist in Patristics and early Christianity. Thanks to Mark Lamas and his fellow PhD students who arranged the event and handled filming and posting it on YouTube.
