Q53 Of Christ's Resurrection
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A1   A2   A3   A4  

We have now to consider those things that concern Christ's Exaltation; and we shall deal with (1) His Resurrection; (2) His Ascension; (3) His sitting at the right hand of God the Father; (4) His Judiciary Power. Under the first heading there is a fourfold consideration: (1) Christ's Resurrection in itself; (2) the quality of the Person rising; (3) the manifestation of the Resurrection; (4) its causality. Concerning the first there are four points of inquiry:

A1 The necessity of His Resurrection;

A2 The time of the Resurrection;

A3 Its order;

A4 Its cause.
