The idea of the reduction of all bodily resurrection references to spiritual transformation by grace has rhetorical plausibility, but it may obscure a wider context of biblical meaning. The human body is an irreducible and essential part of our humanity. One cannot spirit it away without doing violence to our bodies or souls. This is a basic datum of human experience, the intuition of which btw separates traditional Jews from philosophical Greeks. Why bother to assert Jesus rose in a body?
Good respectful discussion of a topic as contentious as "the Trinity", "hell" and "Genesis chap1:1-2:3". At the start Daniel correctly stated that coming to accept Preterism will result in a radical change of mindset, if a person was entrenched in Futurism. It's ultimately how a person understands the nature of the Kingdom of God. Looking forward to the second installment. God bless
