Redemption and Resurrection: An exercise in biblical-systematic theology

by Richard B. Gaffin, Jr, Professor of Biblical and Systematic Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, USA.


Christ’s resurrection, inseparably connected with his death, is at the heart of the gospel (e.g., Rom. 10:9; 1 Cor. 15:3-5). Central to the hope ministered by the gospel is the Christian’s resurrection (e.g., Rom. 8:23; 1 Cor. 15). A reality so evidently dominant presents a variety of aspects for reflection. As my title suggests, here I propose to consider particularly its relationship to our salvation by taking a so-called biblical-theological approach.
