The Meaning of the Resurrection

To understand the meaning of Christ’s coming, of His death and resurrection, we have to see it as the creation of a new humanity, and also the planned destruction by God of all human elitism, of all conspiracies against God and against His anointed. God reduces all man’s efforts and pretensions to nothing, as a prelude to establishing His new creation. And Christ is declared to be the first fruits of that new creation, and Paul tells us that each of us in Christ are citizens of that new creation, members of a new humanity.
