This divine restoration of the created order, foreseen by the prophets, is not completely ahead of us. The promised future landed in this world two thousand years ago, when Jesus announced that He was starting to fulfil the old prophecies (Lk 4:16-21). This is why Jesus healed people. His healings weren’t stunts. They were a preview of coming attractions.
