Abstract to the article:

After almost a century of virtual dormancy, a number of naturalistic alternative hypotheses regarding Jesus’ resurrection have appeared in recent publications.  Similar to the situation at the end of the Nineteenth Century, hallucination and related subjective approaches are again the most popular among critics.  We will survey several of these recent formulations.  Then we will offer numerous critiques, both of such subjective approaches as a whole, as well as a couple of inclusive issues.  We will argue that these alternative strategies fail to explain the historicity of Jesus’ resurrection appearances for a host of reasons, even when judged by critically-accepted standards.
