Dan Rogers: Good morning everyone. Good to see you here once again and as usual, it’s time now in our service to talk about God’s word. Our text for today is going to be from 1 Corinthians 15. Before we get to the text, let’s talk a little about the background in which Paul is writing to them, to the church in the city of Corinth. Anybody know anything of interest about the city of Corinth that you’d like to share with the rest of us? What do you know about that town in ancient Greece?

Person: It was a very well-known town in that area. It was important as far as commerce.

Immortality: The "Mother of All Changes"

There’s nothing certain in life except death and taxes, goes the old saying. We might be able to deal with taxes by making more money or getting government to lower them… but death? What can we do about death? Nothing.

We Say Goodbye... ...But Then What Happens When We Die?

A much-loved relative had died “full of years,” as the King James Bible quaintly puts it. Family and friends gathered in the funeral home to say goodbye. Open-casket funerals are the tradition in our area. So we sat sadly before the mortal remains of our loved one. A solemn recording of a well-known hymn provided an appropriate background for the snuffles and choked-back tears of the mourners.

“That was her favorite hymn,” said someone. “She would have liked that.” And that is when the words of an old Beatles song suddenly popped into my head.

With What Body Are the Dead Raised?

The resurrection of believers to immortality at Christ’s appearing is the hope of all Christians. It’s not surprising, then, that when the apostle Paul heard some members of the church in Corinth were denying the resurrection, he challenged their misperceptions.

The Resurrection of the Body and Why It Matters

When Christ returns, the dead will be resurrected. “With what body do they come?” some ask. Will their atoms be re-assembled? Will there be male and female? Will we recognize one another? Will we look young, or old? Many other questions are asked.

The Resurrection Body - 1 Corinthians 15b

Ancient Greek philosophers believed that the world of spirit is perfect, whereas the world of matter is bad. The human soul is good, but it is trapped in the physical world. The body is a like a tomb, and the soul needs to escape.

These beliefs affected the congregation in Corinth. Some church members thought that the body is bad, so they denied all bodily pleasures, even in marriage. Others went to the opposite extreme: since the body will eventually be discarded, it doesn’t matter what a person does in the body.

Will We Live Again? 1 Corinthians 15a

Every spring, Easter reminds Christians that Jesus rose from the dead. His resurrection was certainly good news for him, and we rejoice that our Friend lives again. But Easter tells us more than that — it tells us something about our life, too.

A core component of the gospel

Paul wrote his letter to the church at Corinth to address several problems and questions that the members had. In chapter 15, he responds to the idea that no one will be resurrected from the dead.

Beyond Death

a young man looking to the skyTime and tide wait for no man, observes an English proverb. For most, time moves too quickly. We cannot find enough time to accomplish everything we want to do. As we grow older, time seems to fly by even faster.

The Power of the Resurrection

Christians accept the resurrection accounts on faith, but it is a faith sealed by the inward testimony of the Holy Spirit. Faith is not blind, unintelligent trust. Theology has been defined as “faith seeking understanding.” Christians wor­ship God with their minds as well as their hearts.

The four Gospels record an event hard to explain away in face of the most obvious evidence – the existence of the Christian church. Something unprecedented happened in Jerusalem in the first century. This forces the question: What kind of history do we encounter in Scripture?

The Resurrection: Our Hope for the Future

The apostle Paul tells us, “If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith” (1 Corinthians 15:13-14). In other words, if there isn’t any resurrection, our faith is pointless. If Christianity is simply about this physical life and then we die to never exist again, then it really doesn’t matter what we do or how we live or what we believe.
