Surprised by hope: "We look for the resurrection of the dead" - 11.15 am 1/5/16 (1 Corinthians 15:20

Donald explores how the resurrection of the dead fits into the eschatological purposes of God with a redeemed humanity inhabiting a renewed creation. St Paul notes that our resurrection bodies will be different from our current bodies, but that there will be continuity of our personhood, so that we will be recognisably us. What we are, and what we do, now will contribute to what we will be in the redeemed life: our ‘labour in the Lord is not in vain’.
