The Resurrection

From J.I. Packer, lecture notes:

The resurrection of Jesus:

  • demonstrated his victory over death (Acts 2:24; cf. 1 Cor. 15:54–57);
  • vindicated him as righteous (Jn. 16:10);
  • vindicated his divine identity (Rom. 1:4);
  • led on to his enthronements, through his ascension (Acts 2:36; Phil. 2:9f);
  • guaranteed our hope of resurrection after death (1 Cor. 15:18);
  • guaranteed the eventual renewal of the universe (1 Cor. 15:24; Eph. 1:10; Phil. 3:21);
  • is the basis of our resurrection life now (Rom. 6; Eph. 1:18-2:10; Col. 2:9-15, 3:1-4).
