Sadly, all the extravagant praise in the world will not disguise the fact that Paul wrote that Jesus became a life-giving spirit and that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God and that God gives a new body to what is planted in the ground, which is not the body which is to be.

Nor will it alter any of the plagiarism found in the NT miracle stories and documented in

Despite the Bishop of Durham's work, sceptics will continue to point out what the Bible actually says.

I recommend Richard Carrier's chapter in 'The Empty Tomb', where what Paul actually says is discussed.
