What if Jesus meant to save us by telling us we’d be resurrected (and thus freeing us from having to fight for survival, freeing us from getting caught up in “us versus them,” freeing us to love — giving up one’s life for one’s friends — without fear of death)? while we Christians have been telling people you have to be “saved” before you’ll be resurrected!?
Oops. That would be bass-ackwards.
