Jacob, David K. “PRACTICAL IMPLICATIONS OF RESURRECTION THEOLOGY AT ROCK ISLAND ARSENAL, ILLINOIS AND RISEN CHRIST LUTHERAN CHURCH, DAVENPORT, IOWA” Doctor of Ministry. Major Applied Project, Concordia Seminary, 2020. 145 pp.
In some Christian churches there exists a tension between the resurrection of the body and a cultural view of an immaterial heaven as the endpoint of eternal life. This MAP examines this tension and shows the biblical teaching of the resurrection from the dead in a bodily form on this present perfected earth as the endpoint of eternal life for the Christian. A multi-part Bible study was written to teach believers the understanding of resurrection as taught in the Bible. Eight volunteer participants from Rock Island Arsenal and Risen Christ Lutheran Church, Davenport, Iowa were asked five interview questions before and after the Bible study. The results of the data gathered and discussed and the conclusion from this study shows there is misunderstanding among believers on resurrection theology. There is also room for improved understanding of the biblical resurrection teaching.
