The scandal of the empty tomb

On the “scandal of the empty tomb”, Michael Pahl says the following in his book,

To put this simply, everyone knows that dead people do not come back from the dead, let alone to some transformed human existence, but that’s precisely the point of the Christian claim that God raised Jesus from the dead – the utterly impossible has in fact occurred. And the impossible has now become the norm, the standard by which all else is measured.
