For Thursday, Friday and Saturday of this week, I’ll post short thoughts from Thomas Oden’s book Classic Christianity on maybe the most incredible, earth-changing thing to happen in all of history: the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. Here’s the first one:
By rising from the grave the Lord raised up a new human nature and honored humanity in an unparalleled way.
By the resurrection, the drama of God’s plan of salvation.
To understand the resurrection is to understand the meaning of history from its end.
(…see Romans 5:15-19; Acts 2:24; 1 Cor 15:20-23)
