No mere mega-miracle or trump card

“The resurrection demonstrates who Jesus is. It is not meant to be just some mega-miracle, or trump card for the existence of God. It speaks powerfully of the identity of Jesus. We can be assured that he is exactly who he claimed to be. And because of that same resurrection, we can also be assured that he achieved in his death exactly what he said he would – we can be assured of our salvation. The resurrection compels us to see something of who Jesus is. It also compels us to see something of what he has done.”

-Sam Allberry in Lifted: Experiencing the Resurrection Life (P&R, 2010), pp. 34
