perfectly suited for its function and environment.
Session Five - Resurrection of the Dead (Part 2)
1 Corinthians 15
5 take-aways from 1 Corinthians 15: 42-44 (Verses 42-44 contrast the nature of our earthly, physical bodies with that of our heavenly, spiritual bodies.)
(1) The former body is “sown” in a perishable state whereas the resurrected body is raised as an imperishable body.
(2) The physical, earthly body is “sown” in dishonor; the resurrected body is raised in glory.
(3) The physical body is “sown” in weakness; but the resurrected body is raised in power.
(4) The physical body is “sown” a natural body; the resurrection body is raised a spiritual body.
(5) The origin, nature, and destiny of both the natural body and the spiritual body can only be understood in terms of their relationship to the “first Adam” and the “last Adam,” Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 15: 45-49 (Verses 45-49 link our earthly bodies with the “first Adam,” and our heavenly resurrection bodies with Jesus Christ, the “last Adam.”)
The “first Adam” became a living soul; the “last Adam” became a life-giving spirit.
The “first Adam” was a natural man; the “last Adam” became a spiritual man.
The “first Adam,” through his sin and death, brought sin into the world and caused all mankind to be under the sentence of death. Jesus Christ, the “last Adam,” through His righteousness, death, burial and resurrection, has brought about resurrection for all men.
Adam had a natural, fleshly body. So did Jesus Christ.
Adam had a perishable fleshly body. So did Jesus. This is why He was able to die on the cross of Calvary.
The natural body of Adam was characterized by weakness. So was the earthly body of Jesus. Jesus in His earthly body knew hunger (Matthew 4:2; 21:18). He knew fatigue (John 4:6). He was so weakened by His torture that another had to carry His cross (Luke 23:26).
1 Corinthians 15: 50-53
Flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. Our earthly bodies are not designed for the kingdom of God. For us to dwell eternally in the presence of God, we must have different bodies. If we are to dwell in God’s presence for all eternity, we must have imperishable, incorruptible bodies, and that means we must trade in these earthly, perishable bodies.
