Most Christians like to claim they are "born again"...changed through God's grace. They will also claim these changes don't take place over night. I find that a bit a cop out...an excuse...should not this change be immediate? Some claim that it is.
The change is positional. From positional enemies to positional peace with God. It does not necessarly require dramatic change in personality. If i look over my life in the past year things have improved dramatically.

I would say you can have high expectations of other people in general and Christians but in the process serenity is forfeited. I like a qoute from Alcoholics Anonymous book involving a Professor in the personal stories section. His serenity is directly proportional to his acceptance and inverse proportion to his expectations of other people. Most Christians are very decent people. I know! They put up with me. Done all they could to help me, again and again. Came to see me in jail. These are busy people. PH.Ds, People in business. So your perception of Christians and mine are dramatically different. I had to get to know them and they me. Knowledge is a windbag and love is a builder.

Centuries ago, millions were drowned because they were retaliatory unbelieving scum just like you. And they were warned hundreds of times before it happened, so don't give me this "God was evil" nonsense.

In the Greek, "He is risen" is simply "arose" as in "woke up" "got up" etc. It has no zombie connotations.
"Into Galilee" The place of his origins, "Home"
Thus, Mary is told "He got up and went home."

Thanks for the interpretation.

Ignoring context is never a good idea, IMO.

Mar 15:37 But Jesus cried out with a loud voice and breathed his last.

Mar 16:6 But he said to them,“Do not be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has been raised! He is not here. Look, there is the place where they laid him.

Don't put words in my mouth you dishonest asshole."God was evil" came from YOUR lip not mine...And you wonder why I have contempt for assholes for god!---YOU happen to be one of those despicable pieces of trash...by your own works, so don't point your ugly finger at me scum.

You can believe all those fairytales if you want. It just shows how out of touch you are with reality, and your posts prove what a detriment and danger you are to yourself and society.
Backbone?...YOU are the one who needs a pocket god just to survive in your mental delusion. It is YOU who has no backbone scum...so why don't you quit trying to project your miserable existence onto everyone else and grow a set of balls and face up to reality for a change...instead of being the JOKE that you are.

OK.

Alternative #3

He was "lifted up" and taken to "Galilee", "you will see him there"

His family got the body and took it to be interred in the family tomb in Galilee as Jesus wished. The disciples were invited to come see the body.

That makes him dead, instead of my previous postulate in which he survives.

Now, if MArk believed that Jesus was resurrected and the man talking to Mary believe he was resurrected, do you really think they would spend a sentence on it ?

If you saw someone jump out of the casket at the funeral would you simply and only say "..and then Aunt Martha got out of her casket and went home." ?
