Walter Kunneth's doctrine of Resurrection.

One hates to jump into the middle of theological quarrels, it's always dangerous, and so we won't, except to note that the argument appears to be over whether or not Jesus instantiates the Resurrection, and what that means. If the Cosmos is archetypal, then there was already a "pattern", which means that Jesus (in a sense) was not unique. Paul's language is to call Him "firstborn". In our humble opinion, every theological dogma breaks down at some point on the Scylla/Charybdis of the One-and-the-Many Problem. However, it may be possible to either experience such first hand (which is what we do eventually anyway) or use language more precisely to avoid creating dilemmas to begin with.
