Quotes to Consider:

John Calvin on Isaiah 6: "John tells us that it was Christ (John 12:41) and justly, for God never revealed himself to the Fathers but in his eternal Word and only begotten Son."

Herman Hoeksema on Lord’s Day 22: "The body of the resurrection shall never be wanting in strength. It draws from a source of unlimited power and vitality. It will not gradually deteriorate. It shall renew its youth like the eagle’s. Always there will be strength for the task. Just as in the resurrection no one shall ever say: ‘I am sick,’ so no one shall ever complain of being weary or exhausted. The source of this ever renewed and ever youthful strength is the risen Lord. With Him the risen saints are united. From Him, Who is the Son of God, they draw their power" (The Triple Knowledge, vol. 2, p. 283).
