Karl Barth on Resurrection

“It must be seen that in the midst of life, even in blooming and healthy life, there is a yawning chasm, a deep pit that cannot be filled by any art or power of man. Only one word is sufficient to cover this chasm, to fill this pit: “Jesus is victor!” – that is, “resurrection.”
We must realize that all the paths of life upon which we walk are the same, now or at any later time, in that they all lead to the edge of the precipice. We cannot bridge this precipice but its bridging has been made manifest in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Who would partake in this resurrection must first have seen this chasm, have discovered this pit.”
– Karl Barth
