Jürgen Moltmann on Resurrection

Resurrection is not a consoling opium, soothing us with the promise of a better world in the hereafter. It is the energy for a rebirth of this life. The hope doesn’t point to another world. It is focused on the redemption of this one. In the Spirit, resurrection is not merely expected. It is already experienced. Resurrection happens every day. In love we experience many deaths and many resurrections. We experience resurrection through the rebirth to living hope. We experience resurrection through the love which already brings us to life here and now; and we experience resurrection through liberation: ‘Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.’ (II Cor. 3:17)
Jürgen Moltmann, Jesus Christ for Today’s World, p. 81
