Christ was risen and Christ was raised ARE TWO DIFFERENT meanings and not the same at all.
Sorry, I don't agree. In what context are you saying that the Holy Spirit refers to the Person of the Holy Spirit, and Holy Spirit does not refer to the Person of the Holy Spirit?
Spirit' and 'the Spirit' can both be taken in a definite sense in Greek. It is the context which matters, as the scholarly translators into English very clearly show. What you are suggesting is that those who have translated the Bible into Enlgish are less knowledgeable than you. While I respect your knowledge I find that unlikely.
I think the Coptic bikhristoc afdonf is the perfect present, the simple past, and the closest thing to the present qualitative.
I don't think the preterite is absolute as you might believe. It isn't in English either.
