On the cross, Jesus rescued the universe. Israel of old was enslaved in Egypt through no fault of their own; their descendants were enslaved by Babylon precisely because of their sin. In both instances, a rescue operation was in order. All of creation is groaning, anticipating, longing, yearning, agonizing for freedom, release, manumission. Some of creation lies enslaved due to sin. The rest is just enslaved. The entire cosmos is under the heavy whip of the satanic overseer.
It matters not whose fault the enslavement is. What matters is release, rescue, liberation. The chains were broken on Good Friday. A new kingdom – the Kingdom of God was launched. God invites us to participate in making all things new.
