New essay at Abiding Quaker: On Redemption in John 11

The following excerpt is from a new post on Abiding Quaker, patradallmann.com

This essay is about the final stage in the process of redemption: when we have observed and embodied the demands of the Law; when we have heeded faithfully the requirements of conscience; when we have watched and waited expectantly, and yet have come up empty, and not known why. I will examine crucial verses in John 11 that point to the condition that immediately precedes the inward resurrection to life eternal. This chapter in John is about Lazarus being raised from the dead, but the verses I will focus on replicate the conditions of inward death and inward resurrection that are to be visited upon all.

This outline of your proposed essay on the final stage of the process of redemption intrigues me.  In speaking of the conditions of inward death and inward resurrection, it reminds me of Isaac Pennington's cry for the comfort to his spirit, "like the 'hart that panteth after spring water."

I look forward to the "rest of the story."

Directions to the Panting Soul discuss the need to rest under the yoke, and listen only to the power in the light of the gospel.
