I know enough. The resurrected Christ is still expanding and exploding. The ripples of this explosion are still reverberating through man until today. (And I have heard the word "explosion" in relation to the Big Bang many many times in spite of what you say.
The Roman Empire was not able to stop this explosion.
The Inquistion was not able to stop it either.
Things present nor things to come cannot stop this expansion of the resurrected Christ within the believers.
This resurrection was a great beginning in the universe. Jesus in resurrection is a great beginning in the "new creation". Here in Colossians Paul tells us Chrst is the Beginning as the resurrected One:
"And He [Christ] is the Head of the Body, the church; He is the beginning, the Firstborn from the dead, that He Himself might have the first place in all things...." (Colossians 1:18)
Jesus Christ, in resurrection is "the Beginning".
Jesus Christ in resurrection is "the Firstborn from the dead" .
He is the expanding and exploding point dispensing God into His believers. If you don't believe in the resurrected Jesus you will be left behind. You will be left behind in the old creation.
To prove to you that Jesus Christ is the new beginning and the old creation is being superceeded, I refer you to the last judgment, the judgement of the great write throne at the end of old creation:
"And I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose facee earth and heaven fled away, and no place was gfound for them.
And I saw the dead, the great and nthe small, standing before the throne, and scrolls were opened; and another scroll was opened which is the book of life.
And the dead wre judged by the things which were written in the scrolls, according to their works." (Rev. 20:11-12)
The one sitting on the great white throne is Jesus Christ. And from His face, the earth, the mountains, the stars, everythng in the skies, the sun, moon, and planets all fled away. The world seems blown away and nothing is seen remaining but the face of the Godman Jesus on His throne.
For the unbelievers it is a negative explosion because whoever's name was not found written in "the book of life" is cast into the lake of fire:
"And if anyone was not found written in the book of life, he was cast into the lake of fire" (Rev. 20:15)
They were judged according to what was in the scrolls. But they were cast into the lake of fire according to whether their name was or was not in the book of life.
But to the believers whose names were found written in the book of life this explosion of the resurrected Christ is very positive and consumates in a new heaven and a new earth. That is because immediately after the great white throne judgement John writes:
"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more." (Rev.21:1) (The sea is also a symbol of death. And Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire along with Satan and all the unbelievers (Rev.20:10,14,15)
This resurrected Firstborn from the dead, Jesus Christ, is certainly the holy and divine singularity of God's new creation.
" These things says the Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the beginning of the creation of God." (Rev.3:14)
In coming posts I will speak to how everything for the new creation is compacted and comressed in this all-inclusive Singularity Jesus Christ.
