An Excerpt From a Sermon by Michael Poellet:

“…according to Jesus, Scripture attests to what God does. It witnesses to the transformative power of God which is nothing less than resurrection, the way of going from death to life in all sorts of different ways. For example, in Genesis 1:1 what else is creation but resurrection? The earth is a formless void, it is chaos, but through the transforming power of God life is created. Or Noah: everyone is an endangered species. God instigates an endangered species act – build an ark, save all the animals, including that most dubious animal, the human being. Abraham and Sarah: Sarah is barren but God gives to them a son, the beginning of a great nation. And Exodus, the delivery of the Israelites from Egypt, the rise of King David, the return from Exile, these are all examples of God’s transforming power at work and Scripture is filled with hundreds of stories that attest to this power, this power that is resurrection at work in this world and at work in our lives.”
