People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 15:27


1Co 15:27 For he put all things under his feet. Quoted from Ps 8:6, a statement that Christ is Lord of all and that God has subjected all to him. He is excepted, which put all things under him. God gave Christ the power, and hence he is excepted. The Father is not subject to the Son.

Discussion for 1 Corinthians 15

  • Levi
    vs. 27,28,29 no other comments on the fact that until Jesus delivers a perfect world back to the father, he is not under the subjection of the father. Which I believe indicates our prayers should be to Jesus, not just in Jesus name.

    Hi Jeanie,
    When the bible refers to " sleeping"( in this context) it is referring to our bodies, not our spirits. Indeed, those who die in Christ before the rapture or second coming, go to paradise. This is ehat Jesus referred to thief on the cross. Also, in Luke 16, there is reference to this paradise ( a holding place until we r given new bodies in the likeness of Christ), called Abraham's Boso
  • Jeanie
    Have you guys noticed they talk about how people that are dead are sleeping again. They say that alot in almost every book in the bible how people who r dead are sleeping and waiting for christ to come again. Why are people being taught that we go to heaven or hell when that is not what it is teaching us. In revelatiion it said how the dead shall rise when christ comes. Were they not risen?

    Without sowing there won't be germination, desire to be sown and die of sin so that u be raised and germinated into righteousness and incorruptible.
  • Gordon w. for verse 51
    Sit with a minister, elder body is God given from the start, each body of flesh, yet was God is concerned about in giving us the ability to choose or not is ours...did so out of love for us ...god is concerned about your soul as you should be also. Our bodies are just a compartment to carry our souls as it were, for when we die we go to the ground from where we were taken...biology shows us that we disenegrate there, yet your breathe of life is what makes you a living Soul in Gods eyes, each one has Gods notice and if he created us, he surely can re-create us ! Yet He promised this would happen when the time of his re-appearing shall come. That s why Christ the Son of God willingly gave His life, and more importantly, has Risen again in what ? SPIRIT ...to be with His Father in heaven....to show us from words in scripture he will do just that! Yet you realize that the dead are risen first by Christs own words! There are only a chosen few that God has called to his side that were still alive on earth. Nobody goes to heaven when they die. But it sounds nice too say and teach, God made us and he can re-Make us. There is so much more to this but it will have to wait.......please dont worry, about what kind of body God may give us, cause this is all we know, these bodies we have....imagine being a spirit though!! Wow...
