The Resurrection

Brian V. Johnstone

Oxford University Press

With the death of Jesus, his resurrection is at the centre of the Christian kerygma. The resurrection ought, therefore, be at the centre of Moral Theology and Christian Ethics. However, this has not been the case. This article seeks to describe what a moral theology, as reflection on the experience of the resurrection, would look like. It would be a practical theology of the resurrection, an ethics of transformation focused on the transformation of Jesus and the transformation of humankind, which that makes possible.

Keywords:   Christian ethics, Christian kerygma, ethics of transformation, Johnstone, moral theology, practical theology, transformation of humankind, transformation of Jesus
