The Passion of Jesus, the BBC and the Resurrection

Some people have written saying they were 'delighted with the last episode and the presentation of the resurrection, probably the best thing about the whole film and possibly the best presentation of the resurrection I've seen. '

Was it better than Paul's presentation of the resurrection in 1 Corinthians 15?

Paul was writing to converts to Jesus-worship who scoffed at the whole idea of God choosing to raise a corpse.

Sadly, Paul could not show them the BBC film.

Or use any of the details from the film.

No wonder he was reduced to telling people 'For we know that if our earthly dwelling, a tent, should be destroyed, we have a building from God, a dwelling not made with hands'

If only Paul had seen the BBC film, or learned about any of its details, then he would have been far more able to teach what a resurrected body was like to Christian converts who scoffed at the idea of a corpse turning into a resurrected body.
