Quote for the Week
"There is no sign of ... a 'progressive kingdom' in Paul. Instead we find the analysis of 'what's wrong' focusing on the fact that the Messiah's reign, though emphatically present, is not complete. The 'last enemy', death, remains as yet still powerful, though defeated in principle through the resurrection. There is no progressive overcoming of death; it isn't the case that, because of the work of the gospel, people die a little less, or that death is less unpleasant. The ultimate resurrection will not be the final coping-stone on a building that has been steadily growing up to that point. It will be as sudden, new and shocking as was Easter Day itself."
