Resurrection – Part 5. What does our resurrection body look like? The Corinthians were skeptics as was explained in 1 Corinthians 15:35 (KJV) “But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?” These skeptics have a hard time accepting the resurrection as demonstrated in 1 Corinthians 15:12 (KJV) “Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?” Paul was dealing with worldly intellectuals who were having a problem dealing with this truth. Paul knows that the resurrection is the bedrock of Christianity as he emphasizes in 1 Corinthians 15:19 (KJV) “If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.” The answer to the question “how does God raise the dead?” is never given in scripture. God tells us there is a resurrection but not how he does it. The “how” question is for the foolish skeptics as shown in 1 Corinthians 15:36-38, 54 (KJV) “Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body…So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.”. The lesson on February 16, 2003 is the fifth lesson in a series on resurrection.
