New Lutheran Quote of the Day

The Christian's full share in his Lord's resurrection, surely pledged in Holy Baptism, remains the object of hope, a future even to be realized only at the parousia on the Last Day.  While the bodily miracles of the Incarnate Lord prefigure the coming resurrection, these temporary works of divine mercy are only weakly comparable with the grand eschatological event of which they offer a partial preview. -- Dr. John R. Stephenson, Eschatology, p. 105.
