1Co 15:48 As [is] the earthy. All have earthly bodies like that of Adam. As [is] the heavenly. When we are raised to heaven we shall have spiritual bodies like Christ's, not like the body he received from Mary, but the glorious body in which he appears to saints and angels on high. Do we ask what body we shall have? It shall be like Christ's glorious body. See Php 3:21.
