Wow! That's rapid career advancement! ( ;
OK, more seriously: I realize Jim does not mean to imply that one event
followed immediately on the other. I've often wondered about Paul's
satetment in 1 Cor. 15:
that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures,
and that he was buried,
and that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures,
and that he appeared to Cephas,
then to the twelve,
How much time might Paul have assumed to have passed between the raising and
the appearance to Cephas?
