Q[53] Of Christ's Resurrection
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]  

We have now to consider those things that concern Christ's Exaltation; and we shall deal with (1) His Resurrection; (2) His Ascension; (3) His sitting at the right hand of God the Father; (4) His Judiciary Power. Under the first heading there is a fourfold consideration: (1) Christ's Resurrection in itself; (2) the quality of the Person rising; (3) the manifestation of the Resurrection; (4) its causality. Concerning the first there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] The necessity of His Resurrection;

A[2] The time of the Resurrection;

A[3] Its order;

A[4] Its cause.
