On the resurrection…

… and on a good number of other matters too, from Creation to Scriptural Inspiration…

… a standard, and very misleading line: resurrection made sense in the first century because people held an ancient worldview, whereas we hold a modern one. The real distinction is between one kind of Jewish worldview (which then mutated into the Christian worldview) and virtually all other worldviews, ancient and modern alike. N T Wright

I think too few people realise there is a Christian worldview, as opposed (literally) to the modern western worldview. And so one fails to see how much it challenges ones fundamental assumptions.
