Paul’s Importance in Early Christianity? « Christianity in Antiquity (CIA): The Bart Ehrman Blog

Paul’s Importance in Early Christianity? « Christianity in Antiquity (CIA): The Bart Ehrman Blog: "’d like to say a bit more about Paul in relationship to the beginning of Christianity.  Yesterday I argued that Paul could not have invented the idea of the resurrection.   I should point out that Paul himself – who was always proud of the “revelation” of the truth given to him and his part in disseminating it (see Galatians 1-2) – admits in 1 Cor. 15:3-5 that he “received” from others the view that Christ died for sins and rose from the dead, before appearing “first” to Cephas and then others."
