Since our Christianity depends upon believing that Jesus is risen, if
tillich did not believe this, he does not fulfill my definition of a
Christian. If he is not a Christian, then his writings become philosophy and
not religion, as having any personal benefit.
I at first thought the question was whether or not a camera would have
recorded Christ unwrapping himself, or being unwrapped by angels vs. him
just disappearing. But, in continued discourse it appears that Tillich
believed there was no physical evidence at all, but rather that the
disciples were having visions.
Excuse me, but I find this highly offensive coming from a 'Christian'.

>>Years ago a professor of mine once asked Tillich if a camera could
recorded the Resurrection of Jesus. The curt reply was "no!"... Perhaps
" Would the camera have recorded the three of them on the road to
Emmaus?" The answer for Tillich, I believe, is still "no". >>>
Can you give me a citation on this?
