Aside

In Earth as It Is in Heaven

N. T. Wright on what the resurrection of Jesus started:

‘Jesus’s resurrection is the beginning of God’s new project not to snatch people away from earth to heaven but to colonize earth with the life of heaven. That, after all, is what the Lord’s Prayer is about.’

Thy kingdom come, the Lord teaches us to say. Though our minds must ascend with him to heaven, his Spirit makes our bodies the instruments of his kingdom here today.
