up from the grave he arose
This is the part of the history where the scientists begin to tut and shake their heads in pity at the poor fools who believe in raising the dead to life. Unfortunately, it is also a fairly key plank of the whole Christian faith, so bear with me ...
Having established that Jesus was properly dead, rumours of his sitting up, talking and eating fish were a source of consternation to some. In particular, there were those who had staked their professional reputations on his being dead (on a permanent basis).
And yet, Jesus was spotted (or so it is claimed) not long after his death.
"and that he [Jesus] appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. After that he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time ... Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, and last of all he appeared to me [Paul] also ..." 1 Corinthians 15:5-8
