Hocus Pocus Resurrection   3 comments

Meyers Beam Me Up

Robin Meyers believes that the resuscitation of Jesus’ body is less important than the idea of resurrection as a credible and meaningful principle for living:

“Resurrection is not about ‘beam me up, Scotty!’ It’s not about molecules disappearing and then reappearing. All that is hocus pocus. We don’t believe in Santa Claus anymore. We don’t believe in the Tooth Fairy. We should not believe in ‘beam me up, Scotty’ as an explanation for Easter.”

– Rev. Dr. Robin Meyers in “Saving Jesus Redux” from www.livingthequestions.com

  1. The very disparity among the four Gospels proves without a doubt to me that the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth was far more about its meaning than its atoms.

  2. Is Saving Jesus Redux available in home edition?
