Cornel West Quotes: The Significance Of The Resurrection

The Significance Of The Resurrection Claim Within "true" Christian Descriptions Of The Self, World And God Is That, Despite How Tragic And Hopeless Present Situations And Circumstances Appear To Be, There Is A God Who Sits High And Looks Low, A God Who Came Into This Filthy, Fallen World In The Form Of A Common Peasant In Order To Commence A New Epoch, An Epoch In Which Easter Focuses Our Attention On The Decisive Victory Of Jesus Christ And Hence The Possibility Of Our Victory Over Our Creature Hood, The Old Creation And This Old World, With Its History Of Oppression And Exploitation. So To Be A Christian Is To Have A Joyful Attitude Toward The Resurrection Claim, To Stake One's Life On It And To Rest One's Hope Upon Its Promise - The Promise Of A New Heaven And A New Earth.
