In "Doctrinal Discussion" Randy Bland quotes N.T. Wright's Surprised by Hope:

I know that God’s new world of justice and joy, of hope for the whole earth, was launched when Jesus came out of the tomb on Easter morning, and I know that He calls His followers to live in Him and by the power of His Spirit, and so to be new-creation people here and now, bringing signs and symbols of the kingdom to birth on earth as in heaven.

Bland finds three truths from this statement:

  1. The resurrection is for everyone.
  2. The resurrection opens up the possibility for Christians to live by the Spirit.
  3. We must realize that we live in what theologians call the time between the already and the not yet.
