Sadgrove & Wright: making sense

Wednesday, June 12, 2019
    Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
    —Psalm 16:9-10 (NIV)
    The very uniqueness of the Resurrection as a historical event always causes problems when we try to describe it, just as it did for the original writers. Nevertheless, the background to the New Testament is one of expectation of resurrection, and only the historical rising again of Jesus makes sense of the narrative in this context.
    ... Michael Sadgrove (b. 1950) & N. T. Wright (b. 1948), “Jesus Christ the Only Saviour”, in The Lord Christ [1980], John Stott, ed., vol. 1 of Obeying Christ in a Changing World, John Stott, gen. ed., 3 vol., London: Fountain, 1977, p. 73 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 16:9-10; Acts 2:25-27; 4:33; 17:18; 1 Cor. 15:13-14,21; Phil. 3:10-11; 1 Pet. 1:3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, in You is our hope of resurrection.
