Some quotations, set at odds:

Seneca: “What is the body? A weight on the soul to torture it.”

Epictetus: “I am a poor soul, shackled to a corpse.”


Paul: “Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say there is no resurrection of the dead? If there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ has not been raised; and if Christ has not been raised, then our proclamation has been in vain and your faith has been in vain.”

Apostles’ Creed: “I believe in…the resurrection of the body”
