New Lutheran Quote of the Day

It becomes clear what the resurrection of Christ means:  It is the turning of old world into new world, the end of the former age and the beginning of the new, the dawn of the new world of eternity and of the Spirit.  The resurrection of Christ can be understood only as the event that fulfills history, as future that has become present.  It begins God's new creation.  It ushers in the universal resurrection of the dead.  -- Hermann Sasse, *We Confess:  Jesus Christ* p. 21.
