People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 15:12


1Co 15:12 How say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? These seemed to admit that Christ was raised, but denied the resurrection of others. He now shows that if Christ be raised, the general resurrection must follow as a result.

  • I AM
    And they that have done good heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies that have done evil beheld them. But woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time.

    Jim, where does this say in the bible, All who are Christ's when they die their spirits all go to glory until the Resurrection and the dead lifeless body
    rests in the ground without the soul in it and we will be given a new body. We also will be able to recognize one another from the old body.
