Richard Sibbes: He rose in spite of them…

24 04 2012

“He rose, even as he died.  He rose a public person, and as a ‘second Adam,’ to give and infuse spiritual life into all his branches.  He rose as our surety in our room.  He rose in spite of those who crucified him, that labored to keep him down all they could.  By the way, this shews that he will rise in his church, and in his children, in his religion, and in his cause.  Let the world and all the devils in hell lay a stone upon Christ, upon his cause, and church, and children; they will rise again, even as his blessed body did, in spite of all the watchfulness of his enemies.”

-Richard Sibbes, Christ’s Exaltation Purchased by His Humiliation in Sibbe’s collected works, vol V pg 327
