When the New Testament writers refer to either the death or resurrection, “they so presuppose that the death and resurrection of Jesus are entwined that they refer to either one of them and intend for us to understand that they mean both of them. If this is the case, straightforward sentences that tell us ‘Jesus died to save us’ or ‘Jesus was raised to save us’ actually mean exactly the same thing.” And Adrian is not alone in this thinking. John Calvin seems to also agree . . .
