Easter Hope

“The challenge of Easter is in fact the challenge of a new creation. It offers itself not as an odd event within the world as it is, but as the utterly prototypical, foundational event within the world as it has begun to be. It is not an absurd event within the old world, but the symbol and starting point of the new world. Jesus ushers in not a new religious possibility or new ethic, but a new creation. …And HOPE is what you get when you suddenly realize that a different worldview is possible, a world in which the rich, powerful and unscrupulous do not, after all, have the last word.”
-N.T. Wright, Surprised by Hope
