Hi everyone! I looked up this question in the archives. There’s so much to read, but I saw it hasn’t been asked/answered in a while so I thought I’d bring it up again. I’m also pretty sure the question wasn’t answered as I found it here: https://wels.net/light-for-our-path-rose-again/:
" A SAVIOR WHO DIED AND ROSE
Like many words in our language, the word again can have different meanings. It can mean “once more” or “another time.” We can rule out those definitions for again in the creeds because Scripture speaks of Jesus dying only once and rising to life only once (Romans 6:9).
Again can also mean “in addition.” Our use of the word again in the creeds has that definition in mind. After confessing that Jesus died and was buried, we declare that, in addition, Jesus rose from the dead. In other words, his death was not the end of his life. In addition to laying down his life for our sins, Jesus took up his life again just as he said (John 10:18)."
Let me know what you think.
And I hope I’m in the right category
