Resurrection and the Missional Impulse

Sunday, a day for remembering. Here are some thoughts on the implications of the resurrection from some other bloggers I’ve stumbled across.

Robert C. Tannehill points out that the resurrection narrative in Luke 24 has a chiastic structure that highlights mission.

Brian Russell makes some similar observations about Luke 24 and adds, “The proclamation of the Resurrection is received with skepticism (24:11). This is worth pondering. Sometimes we think that the ancients were gullible and believed anything.” Resurrection was as anti-intuitive then as it is now.

Tod Bolsinger asks, “If Jesus is risen, then what does that have to do with me?  Is it only something about Jesus or about the “afterlife”? Or does the resurrection mean something that has to do with this world and this life?”
