What I said was bedrock history is that the disciples truly _believed_ the body was resurrected. And Paul _believed_ it was physical after some sort of encounter he claims to have had with the risen Jesus. That's all I claimed. Whether they were right wrong I'll leave others to theorize. If not physical, the various theories of how they came to believe that it was strain credulity. It is only acceptable if you are philosophically committed committed to the impossibility of physical resurrection to begin with. If you enter the debate with an open mind that God is really there and capable, then a physical resurrection best explains the facts. A long read: Lacona, "The Resurrection of Jesus". 600+ pages.
