Not Disappointed by Marshall

June 27, 2006

I’m almost done with Marshall’s NTT, and it seems I misjudged him on his view of the resurrection. Later in the book he clarifies and states that he understands the resurrection as a physical one, albeit involving some sort of resurrection in the spiritual realm. Not sure I understood it all, I probably spelled it out wrong in the sentence before. Ah well, anyway, that was comforting. Perhaps I shouldn’t be so hasty to jump to conclusions about people’s theologies.  At the same time, his use of spiritual (seemingly contrasting fleshly) rang bells for me.

    Remember that he is trying to be descriptive in the sections about each book, it is only in summaries where he is prescriptive about what he thinks the NT teaches as a whole.
