Bible Commentary for 1 Corinthians 15:21

Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 15:21


15:19 If in this life only we have hope - If we look for nothing beyond the grave. But if we have a divine evidence of things not seen, if we have a hope full of immortality, if we now taste of the powers of the world to come, and see the crown that fadeth not away, then, notwithstanding all our present trials, we are more happy than all men.

15:20 But now - St. Paul declares that Christians have hope, not in this life only. His proof of the resurrection lies in a narrow compass, #1Cor 15:12 |- 19. Almost all the rest of the chapter is taken up in illustrating, vindicating, and applying it. The proof is short, but solid and convincing, that which arose from Christ's resurrection. Now this not only proved a resurrection possible, but, as it proved him to be a divine teacher, proved the certainty of a general resurrection, which he so expressly taught. The first fruit of them that slept - The earnest, pledge, and insurance of their resurrection who slept in him: even of all the righteous. It is of the resurrection of these, and these only, that the apostle speaks throughout the chapter.

15:22 As through Adam all, even the righteous, die, so through Christ all these shall be made alive - He does not say, shall revive, (as naturally as they die,) but shall be made alive, by a power not their own.

15:23 Afterward - The whole harvest. At the same time the wicked shall rise also. But they are not here taken into the account.
