Resurrection and the Promise of Glory
As a part of Arts Week 2013, Ken Myers, president and executive producer of Mars Hill Audio Journal, shares how the resurrection of Christ confirms God’s love for His creation and the order He established within.
Before Christ was raised from the dead, it would have been possible to believe that Creation was a lost cause, that sin had so undone God’s handiwork that death and horror were more powerful than life and its beauties. When the modern West abandoned its orientation in light of the Resurrection, it also became skeptical about the possibility of beauty. But the resurrection of the man Jesus Christ confirms God’s love for his Creation and the order he established within it. Our present delight in the reality of beauty within Creation anticipates our future delight in the new heavens and the new earth.
