Signs of the Times

[Dr. G. C. Stewart, as quoted by Rev. Joseph Fort Newton, in McCall's Magazine, Dayton, Ohio]

The first sermon ever preached by a Christian minister affirmed that "it was not possible that" Christ "should be holden" by death. St. Peter, standing up on the day of Pentecost, so declared. Overwhelming assurance of the fact of the resurrection came first; awareness of its inevitableness came next. So far from thinking of resurrection as a thing incredible and abnormal, they came to see that an impossible miracle would have happened if he had not risen. It was not a break with the laws of the universe; it was a revelation of another dimension of the universe.
