A theology of the cross with no resurrection is a gospel of condemnation without forgiveness, of punishment that never becomes atonement, of a human Jesus but not a divine saviour, of a world condemned and abandoned but never redeemed and transformed.That isn’t the gospel of the apostles. Check out Acts, for example. Or look at Paul’s magnificent opening salvo to Romans:…the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures regarding his Son, who as to his human nature was a descendent of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord…For Paul, the resurrection of Jesus from the dead means the public declaration of Jesus of Nazareth as the Son of God.
