Lecture 12, Wounds in Heaven:
Jesus Christ’s victory over death was indeed the turning point of history. In His triumph, He reversed the earth’s cycle of chaos and destruction and revealed Himself as the rightful ruler of the cosmos. It is significant that in His exalted state Jesus did not rid himself of his wounds. Instead, He displayed them openly to His disciples. When we take time to consider Christ’s wounds and ours, Jesus enables us to see that pain and sorrow have their own distinct beauty.
