Missional Field Notes

Quotes, Examples, and Ideas from My Missional Frontier

In Surprised by Hope, [N.T.] Wright (who argues persuasively and in scholarly depth for a literal, historical, bodily resurrection of Jesus) asserts that the bodily resurrection when clearly understood leads inexorably to the church’s mission. Indeed, the mission of the church is to implement the victory Christ won on the cross and revealed in the resurrection. But until we understand what resurrection meant to the first Christians, we’ll never understand what it is supposed to mean, for present-day Christians, and through us, the world whole world. “Once we get resurrection straight, we can and must get mission straight.” (p.193).
