A Pithy Jenson on the Marks of the Church

"[T]he marks of the church can be summed up in this formula: the church is where those promises are made and performed that can be sanely made if and only if the particular man Jesus of Israel is indeed risen from the dead."

--Robert W. Jenson, Lutheranism: The Theological Movement and Its Confessional Writings (with Eric W. Gritsch; Philadelphia: Fortress Press, 1976), 135
