Lecture 9, Mourning & Dancing:
Though the kingdom of God has been inaugurated in the Person and work of Jesus Christ, the kingdom has not yet come in all its fullness. Consequently, life in this period of “already” and “not yet” is complex and multifaceted. Though we rejoice in Christ’s victory, we continue to experience tragedy and death. While we mourn the loss of friends and loved ones, we know that, because Christ has defeated death, our sorrow will one day turn to joy.
