The resurrection matters.  Sometimes I make my progressive theological friends anxious when I get going on about it.  A friend told me last week, “Tripp your Christology is so high it might as well come from Venice Beach.” While I am not sure about the comparison (p.s. non-LAites Venice has a high concentration of medicinal herb patients) I have moved over the last 8 years from having a hard-core Jesus Seminar style demythologized existential Christology to whatever you get when Process theology goes proleptic (Pannenberg + Cobb).  Any way, here’s a sweet video that Travis Reed made from me rambling about it in a hotel room.
