The Resurrected Body of Christ and the Truth of It

The resurrected and transformed body of Jesus was the first bit of the material universe to be redeemed, and it is a pledge that the whole will one day be transformed.

The death and resurrection of Christ (central, historical, physical, biblical, and theological truths) constitute the gospel.  If this foundation is lost, the whole superstructure will collapse.

-John Stott: from today's reading in Through the Bible Through the Year, page 278
