NT Wright on the resurrection in Romans

“Romans is suffused with resurrection.  Squeeze this letter at any point, and resurrection spills out; hold it up to the light, and you can see Easter sparking all the way through.  If Romans had not been hailed as the great epistle of justification by faith, it might easily have come to be known as the chief letter of resurrection (not, of course, that the two are unrelated); the Corinthian letters would be strong contenders for such a title, but Romans would give them a good run for their money.”
