Who is Jesus, and what has he done for us and our world? These are questions I’ve beenpondering this summer. What does he mean for us as 21st century believers who live in a technological and scientific age? I mean, especially about salvation. If there’s anything I’ve learned by watching and listening to TED (Technology, Entertainment, and Design) talks—which is one of my favorite past times—is that these erudite, hype, and compelling TED speakers preach that salvation comes through technology. I even heard a TED talk employ the theologically tinged phrase, “resurrection biology,” to describe a process in which DNA from extinct species (like carrier pigeons) could be manipulated and placed into similar living species to bring this extinct bird species “bring them back to life.” If that’s true—and a host of other problems technology will fix—then who needs Jesus’s resurrection? And do we even know if he’s planning to bring back birds from their graves?
