I really enjoy the blog and the podcasts. In your last post you wrote this:
“The miraculous births of Jesus and others in Scripture mirror known ways of speaking of important ancient figures in other cultures. Miracles in general are also common to other ancient religions.
Dying and rising is not unique to the New Testament, but a theme in ancient myths. ”
I’m just wondering if you could point me to these other specific instances? Also, in saying this, are you questioning whether some sort of physical resurrection actually occurred?
