No Resurrection Story in the New Testament

There really is no story about the Resurrection in the New Testament.  Except in the most fragmentary way, it is not described at all.  There is no poetry about it.  Instead it is simply proclaimed as a fact.  CHRIST IS RISEN.  Unless something very real indeed took place on that strange, confusing morning, there would be no New Testament, no Church, no Christianity.
