Resurrection – Part 8. It’s our responsibility as Christians to approach scripture and determine how it should apply in our lives. The resurrection is one of the key topics that we should study. For example, Martha in John 11:23-24 (KJV) demonstrated her understanding of a resurrection when talking about her brother Lazarus “Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again. Martha saith unto him, I know that he shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” As Martha demonstrates, it was widely known among the believers that there is a resurrection of the dead. However, we learn in Philippians 3:7-14 of another resurrection out from among the dead ones. These are different resurrections and the one in Philippians was one that Paul was hoping to attain as a reward. Why did Paul question his participation in this resurrection? This event is reserved as a reward for faith obedience as he showed while he was pressing towards the mark of the high calling. This is not an uncommon thought as we find in Hebrews 11:32-35 that the great heroes of faith were in pursuit of a better resurrection. This better resurrection for the Hebrews is similar to the “out-resurrection” for the Body of Christ. The lesson on Mar 16, 2003 continues the audio series on Resurrection.
