What is the body of Christ? Kaesemann writes…

The Body of Christ denotes a radical and global revolution of an earth enslaved since the fall by demonic forces. In it the Exalted One is revealed as its true Lord. The bodily service of his servants in fellowship with every creature is the demonstration and realization of the claim and promise of the One whose resurrection in 1 Corinthians 15:25 is interpreted as a worldwide revolutionary and explosive event…bodily penetrating all the breadths, depths, and corners of the world…[The coporeality of the church] is the space in which at last the first commandment in its promise and claim is proclaimed over all the earth (On Being a Disciple of the Crucified Nazarene, p. 51).
