Nicholas Lockyer (1611–1685) was a puritan divine with an exceptional preaching ability and fervent spirit towards reformation.
From Acts 3:26, “Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities,” Lockyer teaches on the foundational doctrine of Christ’s glorious resurrection. As Lockyer sates, “The hope of man is founded upon the resurrection of Christ from the dead.”
Such a work of God to redeem fallen men from the justice and wrath of God, one finds the resurrection of Christ bearing the confirmation of God’s oath to the elect for the accomplishment of their eternal good. And in this, rests the infallible determination of Christ’s state as the natural Son of God, and so the messenger indeed of the covenant of grace.
More than any other miracle of the New Testament, the resurrection is the foundation on which our Christian faith rests. Jesus had to be raised from the dead for the cross to be effectual, for his death and resurrection are both essential for redemption. Our resurrected Savior is our Chief Cornerstone, the Author and Finisher of our faith, our triumphant King who conquered sin, death, hell, and the grave, rose from the dead and ascended into glory to the right hand of God.
