I have just had a new article published, this time in the Journal of Greco-Roman Christianity and Judaism and you can read it here. This is a surprising article for me in some ways. My first major publishing project was Unmasking the Pagan Christ, where I argued against the Gospels being based on pagan myths. I continue to hold to that. But does that mean that Greek ideas have had no influence on biblical concepts? Is it true that Jewish is good and Greek is bad? In my article, I argue against the idea that the Greek idea of the afterlife was strictly spiritual and that the Jewish idea was strictly bodily resurrection. I demonstrate that there are Greek parallels to the biblical idea of resurrection. This does not mean that I believe that the biblical writers simply took over what was invented by the Greeks. Rather I suggest that the biblical writers used contemporary language, including what the Greeks were saying, and used that to describe what they believed about the resurrection.
