Pauline resurrection: Jewish or Greco-Roman?
"The dying/rising gods have nothing to do with the resurrection of Jesus-at least not for Paul. He comes from a basis in Pharisaic Judaism to announce that the general resurrection has already begun with that of Jesus-that is why he can argue in 1 Corinthians 15:12-20 that no Jesus resurrection means no general resurrection; no general resurrection means no Jesus resurrection. They stand or fall together for Paul, and he could never even imagine that 'resurrection' is some special privilege for Jesus on the analogy of a dying-rising divinity." (John Dominic Crossan, from his response to Robert Price in The Historical Jesus: Five Views, p.85)
