“Paul’s Account of the Easter Event and Its Apologetic Relevance for the Church in Africa”

By Society For Research And Academic Excellence  et al

Summary

If the whole gamut of salvation history were to be symbolised as a tripod consisting of the incarnation, the cross and the resurrection, there is no doubt that the resurrection of Jesus has received serious attention in theological circles more than the other two because of its centrality to the Christian faith. The church in Africa, in seeking to give objective relevance to her gospel, and confronted with the pleroma of mythologies inherent in the African Traditional Religion, is put in an apologetic position as to the authenticity of the resurrection of Jesus.

Abstract

The historical authenticity of the resurrection story of Jesus has elicited controversy down the centuries.  Down the centuries New Testament scholars have raised questions concerning the account of the resurrection of Jesus as given to us by the Apostle Paul and wondered if this can be relied upon by Christians in the modern world, particularly African Christians?  The paper  examined the central text of I Corinthians 15:3-8 where Paul gives his own account of the resurrection of Jesus. After carrying out an exegetical and hermeneutical analysis of this text, the author then went ahead to point out the apologetic relevance of this event for the Church of Christ.  For Christians in Africa the writer makes it clear that there is no reason to be shy in proclaiming the resurrection of Christ on the basis of the witness of the New Testament writers.
