On 20/11/2007 , I emailed NT Wright with 3 questions about the resurrection and early Christian history.

I got no reply.

Here is the email. Can anybody answer the questions, using Wright's book?

---------------------------------------------------
I have 3 questions about the Resurrection, if that is OK.

Paul writes 'The first man Adam became a living being, the last Adam became a life-giving spirit'.

Does the typology mean Paul expected Christians to share in the nature of the two Adams, firstly as what they are now, and secondly as life-giving spirits?

Many converts to Jesus-worship in Corinth scoffed at the idea of God choosing to raise a corpse. What evangelistic methods had been used to convert them to Jesus-worship?

Were these Jesus-worshipping resurrection-scoffers familiar with Old Testament stories of God breathing life into dead matter to create Adam, or with stories of Moses returning from the grave to speak to Jesus?

S. Carr,

Have you gotten a response from Wright yet? I think I'll have to read this book of his in the future when I study the resurrection in more detail. Also, has Wright responded to Carrier's arguments in "The Empty Tomb"? Or are we just stuck with the reviews of Stephen Davis, JP Holding, and Norman Geisler?

Wright has not responded to Carrier's arguments in 'The Empty Tomb', although he is aware of the book.

The Bishop gave some brief responses in http://stevencarrwork.blogspot.com/2008/01/3-questions-to-bishop-nt-wright.html

Why should NT Wright waste his valuable time responding to self-important, ignorant poltroons like Richard Carrier and Stephen Carr, who can't even be bothered to read his book?
They should even think themselves flattered that JP Holding deigns to notice them.
Landon: you should know better!

For someone who has spent years abusing Christians, your OTT complaints about a mild [and well-deserved] rebuke really do display some chutzpah!
