Toppled Cross

More Brunner on the Resurrection

You know when you find something great, like Dickey’s BBQ, and you think “how could I have gone so long without this?” I am feeling this way about Brunner. A great thanks to Charles Miller for introducing me and to Jim for adding to my reading list. Now, on to the resurrection and history.

Thus here—and here alone—the situation is that an event which is relatively unique in the sense of secular history is apprehended by faith as an event which by its very essence is absolutely or unconditionally unique. The historical event on Calvary, fundamentally appreciable by everyone as such, is the visible shell of the invisible kernel—the absolutely unique—which can only be apprehended by faith.

— Eternal Hope, (Philadelphia: Westminster Press, 1954), p. 35.
