As I have demonstrated Paul's ressurection is not only spiritual but physical. Please respond to what I ahve said (That Saint Paul clearly in 1st Corinthians 15, presents Christ as appearing to the desciples and we have his own student, Saint Luke explaining what that appearence involved IE a Physical appearance) before you reach such a heretical opinion. But your claim about the new testament gospels does them no justice, we have no reason to believe they are not to be taken literal as they were very clearly written as primarily historical documents (the exception being John, but his Gospel is also historical), how can one say spiritually interpret the passage which has Jesus eating fish and then saying a spirit is not flesh and blood? The Bahai have no interpretation of this verse because it contradicts their very novel ideas about Christ (and they are novel or rather a revival of ancient heresies condemned by the Church the Bahai admit had authority at one point, and yet the Bahai insist they do not contradict the early believers, which they clearly do). Please do not insert your bahai intepretaition on to a scripture which knows nothing of it, or else you are no better than the Docetics.
Just to quickly elaborate, In 1st Corinthians Fifteen paul not only gives the teaching that the apostles saw the risen Christ along with the 500, he then goes on to point out about the general ressurection and how some doubted, that if Christ did not raise from the dead we have no hope in us. How can saint Paul be talking about a spiritual ressurection (whatever that accomplishes I have no idea), when he quite clearly says that Christ's ressurection is the first of them. What with the general ressurection (which the bahai conveinently deny) do our bodies just die and everyone's spirits just rise? How is this a ressurection? it is no different from dying. The Ressurection was never understood in first century Judaism and Christianity as being something spiritual, it always involved a fleshly Dimension, no doubt we will have Sen quote verses in order to show that Paul speaks of a spiritual resserection, denying the very verses which indicate that it is a fleshy one as well. Why does the bible contradict itself in the bahai view? Because it is the wrong view of Scripture, the correct view is the Orthodox Christian view, maintained for 2000 years.
But I must ask, why did Jesus utterly fail to teach people correctly if the bahai are correct? Not even Muhammad could teach the reality of Christ and his atoning death. Why is it that new teachers always claim those before them have misunderstood or gone astray? This is the ultimate reason why the Bahai faith crumbles.
