Those who addressed him as Lord in his lifetime were recognising something about him which demanded acknowledgement.
But the presence of the resurrected Jesus evidently made this demand more strongly, so in that respect the Resurrection marked a turning-point.

Yes, thankfully, we don’t take everything literally...or I wouldn’t have any feet, hands or eyes!!
