New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Once our Lord had tasted death for all men and gone through His resurrection and ascension to prepare a place for us, there could take place what had been felicitously described as a christological transformation of the belief in Sheol, whose gloominess was forever dispelled when the glorified Jesus Himself reconstituted the paradise of the blessed. -- Dr. John R. Stephenson, Eschatology, p. 50.
