The Deafening Historic Event

When God raised Jesus from the dead, he said in the deafening language of actual historic event what he had said in the strange descent of the dove at Jesus' baptism: 'This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.' In other words: this is the faithful Messiah, in whom my purpose for, and my call to, Israel is fulfilled.
