Vindicated by the Spirit (I Tim. 3:16; LD 17) | 2006-2007 Catechism Sermons

Lord’s day 17 of the Heidelberg Catechism lays out the significance of Christ’s resurrection from the dead. Normally, we think of this resurrection being something that has to do with the end point in history. Rarely do we think of Christ’s resurrection as a vindication for Christ. When we say this we mean that the resurrection of Christ is His justification, that is a declaration of righteousness. Why is this vindication so important, and how can Christ be justified? Please stay tuned as we hear, “Vindicated by the Spirit.”
