Material type: TextTextPublisher: Ann Arbor, MI : ProQuest, 2018Description: xi, 150 pages ; 29 cmContent type: text Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeSubject(s): Heidelberger Katechismus | Jesus Christ -- Resurrection | Religion and scienceLOC classification: BV4070.L284 | 2018 S26Online resources: Dissertations & Theses @ Lancaster Theological Seminary | Digital Archive of Lancaster Theological Seminary Dissertation note: Major project (D. Min.)--Lancaster Theological Seminary, 2018. Abstract: The central thesis of this study is that the resurrection of Jesus Christ represents a change in matter and the laws of physics that govern the universe. In this context resurrection and the providence of God are addressed through a series of select questions and answers posed by the Heidelberg Catechism. Subjects such as the beginning of the universe, divine governance, original sin, resurrection and new creation are held in juxtaposition with scientific theories of Big Bang cosmology, thermodynamics, death of the universe, and evolution. It is concluded that hope for the future and the problem of evil are resolved only in light of cosmological resurrection and God's suffering with creation for the sake of new creation.
