Thinking Right About The Resurrection

I Corinthians 15:20-23Easter Sunday

A patient lies on the operating table. They’ve stopped breathing. Their heart has stopped beating. In desperation the doctor applies the defibrillator and after three or four shocks the patient is brought back to life.

Was Jesus’ resurrection something like this? Was He simply revived? Was He the same as He was before His death, except for the scars? Or was His resurrection something different, and if so, why does it matter?
