Easily the best treatment I've ever read about these two matters. Brown's integrity, plus his insistence on examining all available evidence and basing his conclusions on that evidence, works for me.

This is classic Raymond Brown scholarship. It is self-aware and thorough. It is meticulous in citing favorable and unfavorable scholars. Brown is as good at setting up the question as anyone I have ever read and if there were a theological topic that could use his skills, surely it is the resurrection.
