Russell Moore on the Resurrection from “Tempted and Tried”

When I first read Russell Moore’s Tempted and Tried: Temptation and the Triumph of Christ (which you should buy and read if you haven’t), the following paragraph moved me deeply:

“But sometime before dawn on a Sunday morning, a spike-torn hand twitched. A blood-crusted eyelid opened.  The breath of God came blowing into that cave, and a new creation flashed into reality.  God was not simply delivering Jesus–and with him all of us–from death, he was also vindicating him–and with him all of us.”

From Tempted and Tried, p. 125.
