On this point, cf. G.G. O’Collins, “Is the Resurrection an ‘Historical’ Event?” Heythrop Journal 8 (1967), pp. 381–387. O’Collins argues (rightly, in my view) that, although the “resurrection is a real, bodily event involving the person of Jesus of Nazareth” (p. 381), the resurrection of Jesus “is not an event in space and time and hence should not be called historical” (p. 384), since “we should require an historical occurrence to be something significant that is known to have happened in our space-time continuum” (p. 384).
