Conceiving a Fiction

True practice & promotion is apprehended in the resurrection

History & Mystery

Paul’s letter to the Romans connects past & present
The public resurrection of Jesus Christ is the sufficient cause for a public proclamation of the gospel, and also its universal confession—what Paul calls the obedience of faith. Or we might state this in its reverse: faith in Jesus Christ is universally commanded because the gospel is the proclamation of a public fact—his resurrection.
