Q plunges us into some meaty issues in this chapter, although some will find something fishy with its ideas. Yes . . . that's a groaner. Sorry. Mea culpa.
- According to Snark, "resurrection" seems to have something to do with the followers of Jesus. It almost sounds as though "resurrection" merges with "incarnation." What do you make of all this?
- Snark seems to approach resurrection from a psychological direction as well. How?
- Snark isn't much for creeds, is he? What do you make of his take on creeds? Is he overstating his case? On target? Explain.
- Q introduces a topic to which he'll later return: the meaning of Jesus' death on the cross.
- One of the more surprising things Snark says is that Jesus should not be worshipped, but followed instead. He gives some reasons for this. What do you make of his point of view? Is he tugging on a keystone without which Christianity cannot be Christianity? Why or why not?
- Snark continues to put forth a different point of view, saying that humans, just as Jesus, are divine . . . made in the image of God. Is this a dangerous idea? Is it a good one anyhow, or not? Go on and on with your explanations!
