The Significance of Christus Victor
Updated: Apr 28
Growing up in the church, one can become rather complacent with the significance of Easter, as if rising from the dead were so jejune that such things happen all the time. In an essay I wrote for the CiRCE Institute in May of last year I attempted to reframe the Resurrection in light of the classical pagan understanding of death. Such an understanding matters for those of us living on this side of Christ's victory over death. The essay is titled, "On (Not) Growing Weary of Easter."
