Living Hope: An Easter Message
This stand-alone message for Easter Sunday focuses on the hymn of Christ’s supremacy over all creation found in Colossians 1. Relying in part on the work of N. T. Wright, it shows the resurrection as God’s work of new creation and kingdom come. A bodily resurrection helps us avoid turning the resurrection into merely an insightful myth or an event with relevance only to life someday in heaven. The resurrection changes everything. It invites us into God’s ongoing work of new creation—here and now, and in the life to come.
