Human beings are cultural beings. Created and called to be – together – the bearers of God’s image, our identity is bound up with God’s own design and purpose for the whole of the created order. We exist in relationship to economic systems, ecological systems, the built environment, and still other dimensions of the created order across time, space, and cultures. Unfortunately, and especially within evangelical traditions, little attention has been paid to the significance of the relationship that exists between human identity and God’s created order. A fresh and robust consideration of the resurrection offers a potent corrective to this. In and through the resurrection, human identity and God’s (re)creational activity are brought into the closest of relationships, offering vital perspective on the expansive nature of Christian witness.
