The Hope of the Resurrection – Part 2 . The lesson on January 25, 2009 continued the lesson on the hope of the resurrection and started with a modified handout from the previous week. The emphasis on this lesson was the unique attributes that can be identified from each resurrection that is found in the New Testament. The first resurrection discussed was the resurrection of Christ, which is the most important one of all! Without Christ’s resurrection, we would have no hope. The second resurrection identified was in Philippians 3:10-12 “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus.” The literal translation means “out-resurrection” which is the specific one that applies to us today. The other five resurrections are Jewish in nature. The chart shows the particulars about these in regards to the character, time, subjects, and destiny of each resurrection.
