Description:
 Issues concerning the possibility of afterlife have provoked perennial controversy, especially since the Enlightenment.  Because Jesus is the most famous case of t he claim that a person rose from the dead, partisans ahve drawn up sides between those who insist his Resurrection was physical and those who argue it was an hallucinogenic metaphor.  Most of that discussion will reverse that approach, and develop a properly exegetical understanding of how the Resurrection was experienced and interpreted before asking whether it might attract belief.
