The chapter uses the mark of the nails in the hands of the risen Jesus in John to investigate the question of identity and recognition in the resurrection. It asks which aspects of bodily identity are integral parts of ourselves and how that identity remains stable over time. It uses medical and philological evidence to argue that the nail-marks on Jesus’s body should be read as scars, not open wounds.
