Dr. McLain presented this lesson April 22, 1984. He reminded us that there is nothing new under the sun–that today as in Biblical times, people followed Epicurus, the Stoics, etc. although called by other names. Paul tells us to put away the old things and seek to know Christ more fully. The drive of his life was to “get to know Him” and to love His divine intervention. Christ was delivered for our offenses and He was raised for our justification. He is risen and seated at the right hand of God the Father and we, too, are raised and seated there with Him. Our citizenship is in the heavens. The scripture is 1 Corinthians 15:12-23 KJV: “12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: 14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. 15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. 16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: 1 Cor 15:17-23 17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. 18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. 19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. 20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. 21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s at his coming.”
