Clay IV.28

Resurrection is linked to the redemption of the flaw, that space in which the first creation occurred. Christ died in order to conquer this realm even unto its furthest reaches--to consume death and the flaw. Christ died in order to begin to use up death through his power as Word. Not succumbing to the powers of this realm, squarely facing torture and death, the man Jesus, empowered by the Christ in him, was executed and then rose. Through Christ we help in conquering this realm: our redemption is part of redemption as such. Resurrection and redemption are not a matter of escaping or transcending, but of fulfilling the creation.
