My favorite post from yesterday’s COTG is undoubtedly The Resurrection ! - Adapted For The Stage. It’s the supposed rough drafts of, well, the resurrection of Jesus, adapted for the stage. The different drafts represent the different versions of the resurrection myth, depending on which gospel you are reading, and shows the author’s difficulties in arriving at a consistent story that agrees with all the different versions found in the Bible. It’s very well done. I really can’t quote any of it – you have to read it all to get the full benefit. The first part (based on Matthew) might seem a little slow, but as you read on to the second part and beyond, you’ll see the point.
It’s one of those posts that makes me say, “I wish I’d thought of that.”
