April, this morning in September, makes a plea to separate confessional from historical reasoning. Der Evangelische Theologe invites us to see a different view of logic in Calvin. We need to follow the ana-logic of obedience and the Christo-logic of faith.
April insists that temporal physical resurrection is anhistorical*. The canonical writings show that Anointing makes present all time and space - our faith entangles us wholly with the faithfulness of the Anointed Jesus and in so doing brings us that same Anointing through the Spirit. This too is exactly the experience of Hashem to the witnesses of Tanach. The cost of the 24 hour day of Creation (Genesis 2:4 'in the day the Lord God created the heavens and the earth') is well laid out for faith in the 24 hours of the Gospel of John.
As George Herbert says of days at the end of his poem, I got me flowers,
We count three hundred but we missThe middle verse expresses the presumption of history over the analogy of love.
There is but one and that one ever.
Update - see Doug's response here for more on the philosophy of history and the circularity of April's argument in September.I got me flowers to strew thy way; I got me boughs off many a tree: But thou wast up by break of day, And brought'st thy sweets along with thee. The Sun arising in the East, Though he give light, and the East perfume; If they should offer to contest With thy arising, they presume. Can there be any day but this, Though many suns to shine endeavour? We count three hundred, but we miss: There is but one, and that one ever.
* anhistorical is a deliberate coinage
