Raymond Brown on the Resurrection
The late Raymond Brown wrote two major works on the Birth of the Messiah and the Death of the Messiah. In the preface to the latter book he explains why he never completed a triology on the Resurrection of the Messiah.
"A surprising number of people have asked if I plan a triology to conclude with The Resurrection of the Messiah. Responding with mock indignation that I have written two books on the resurrection (a response that coveniently ignores the fact that neither is truly a commentary), I tell them emphatically that I have no such plans, I would rather explore that area 'face to face'."
