Introduction

Last time we looked at the teaching of "Jew first" in the Acts and its impact on churches in Galatia and throughout the world as they felt the force of the imperative Paul gave them to look after the needy in Jerusalem. Paul ends the section in 16:9 saying that a great door and effectual is opened unto him and that there were many adversaries. We should not be surprized at the greatness of the door that has been opened to us to make known the fellowship of the mystery and to expect an even greater adversary.

Last time we looked at the issue of  a "soulish" person and a "spiritual" person and the fact that the immortal body will be "spiritual". We look forward to the new body for many reasons -- not only is it the means for us to experience eternal life but it is the way we enjoy it as well. The bare grain of 15:37 is how the body was set up originally -- a far cry from the resurrected body (that which shall be). The specific resurrection mentioned here is that which occurs at the last trump and is found in Matt 24:29-35, 1 Thess.4:16 and Rev. 11:15,16. These passages relate to a...

Chapter 15:45-58

One star differeth from another in glory We "see" the glory -- the size and brightness of the star. Some stars appear before others. They also have importance in terms of the Mazzoroth and signs written on them through artificial groupings. The seed of the woman and the progress of the doctrine of Christ as it...

Introduction

Last time we looked at the idea of sleep as it pertains to the metaphor of death for the Christian. Time is relative, and what we know about time from Physics is that it is present within our "thing" or matter - energy universe -- taken outside that and it need not be there. If the spirit goes back to God and God is fundamentally outside His creation then the spirit is not subject to time and if "sleep" is a metaphor for death then resurrection is an awakening. Sleep is a form of unconsciousness and therefore time has no meaning. We breath out at death and we breath into our...

Chapter 15:20-28

After the logical case has been laid for the resurrection of the dead Paul gives the facts of what actually happened:

20 ¶  But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept.

The expression "But now" is very Pauline and often gives a strong contrast to what has been given previously. The awful consequences of the false notion that Christ did not rize from the dead are now repudiated with the facts. Christ is risen from the dead -- he took an "out - resurrection" and became the firstfruits of those who had died. Notice...
