The Goal of Renewed Humanity: Resurrection

Yet another great quote, this time a bit shorter:

"If the road to true humanity is true worship, the end and goal of God's renewed humanity is of course resurrection...the basic point I wish to make can be stated as follows. When Paul is expounding the resurrection hope of God's people in Christ he is again offering a reality of which (in his view) paganisim is the parody; and again, announcing the reality to which Judaism had pointed."

I love the description of paganism as the "parody" of the reality discovered in Jesus!
