The Holy Spirit is the Down-payment on our Resurrection
James Dunn comments on Romans 8:23,
“The Spirit is himself the aparchē [firstfruits] not just the foreshadowing of it but the beginning of it – the beginnings of a harvest whose reaping proceeds slowly but surely until the final ingathering and rejoicing.”
