Resurrection & the Fulfillment of Promised Possibilities

“Because the resurrection vindicates the Crucified, not the crucifixion, the gospel story undercuts any easy moralism or sentimental liberalism. Yet, though the resurrection opens up possibilities that could not even be imagined by ancient man, it also promises the fulfillment of those possibilities. If it provokes unimagined hunger, it also gives hope for unimagined satisfaction.”

~ Peter J. Leithart, Deep Comedy (Moscow, Id.: Cannon Press, 2006), 25.
