Richard Gaffin on Ignoring the Resurrection

"In fact only by virtue of His resurrection is His death, a dying to sin. A soteriology structured so it moves directly from the death of Christ to the application to others of the benefits purchased by that death, substantially short-circuits Paul's own point of view".

Richard B Gaffin Jr - "The Centrality of the Resurrection - A Study in Paul's Soteriology" - Baker Biblical Monograph, Grand Rapids, Michigan (1978) - (pp116-117).
