We know very well that through his death Jesus substantially testified about his entire hope to all of heaven and earth. On the way to the cross he prayed, "My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me; yet not what I want but what You want:' (Matt. 26:39) As he prayed he surely realized, with intensity unrivaled by anyone, that the more the fear of death washed over his heart the closer the day of hope drew near. In other words, he felt that after going beyond the death of his physical body, a new world of hope would unfold before him, and he yearned for that world. Because he hoped for resurrection in an eternally liberated body after his physical death, and he yearned for it, after he died he was able to resurrect in glory.
