The Hands of the King Are Healing Hands

Posted: June 28, 2011 in books, eschatalogy, Jesus, quotes, theology

I am reminded of a line from Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings: “The hands of the king are healing hands, and thus shall the rightful king be known.”  As a child blossoms under the authority of a wise and good parent, as a team flourishes under the direction of a skillfull, brilliant coach, so when you come under the healing of the royal hands, under the kingship of Jesus, everything in your life will begin to heal.  And when he comes back, everything sad will come untrue.  His return will usher in the end of fear, suffering, and death.

– Tim Keller, King’s Cross, p. 16-17
