And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him. And very early in the morning the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulchre at the rising of the sun. And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre? And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great. And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted. And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him. But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you. And they went out quickly, and fled from the sepulchre; for they trembled and were amazed: neither said they any thing to any man; for they were afraid.
-- Mark 16 1-8

"Then, three days later, Jesus was said to have risen from the dead. This supposed Resurrection was not recounted by any of the four canonical Gospels..."
-- Michael Grant, Saint Peter (London, 1994), 92

"May you lead them to the true path of righteousness, which is chocolate."

Gosh, the Amazon reviews of the Grant book are pretty damning!

I was cheating in a sense, as I've only read the resurrection chapter...

Whut? I don't remember saying that. But I bet I did.

(I'm guessing 'attrib' means that someone asserts than an original source said this, but the source is lost?)

Probably the first time I've been cited in a religious context.

'Attrib.' is my joke because the quotation isn't exact; though you did say something very similar!

The 'them' was specifically emily_shore, not known for her love of chocolate.

Chocolate or hippos, either way you are a bit of an evangelist :p

As long as there is enough chocolate left for me to overeat copiously.
