Bible Commentary for 1 Corinthians 15:53

Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 15:53

15:51 A mystery - A truth hitherto unknown; and not yet fully known to any of the sons of men. We - Christians. The Apostle considers them all as one, in their succeeding generations. Shall not all die - Suffer a separation of soul and body. But we shall all - Who do not die, be changed - So that this animal body shall become spiritual.

15:52 In a moment - Amazing work of omnipotence! And cannot the same power now change us into saints in a moment? The trumpet shall sound - To awaken all that sleep in the dust of the earth.

15:54 Death is swallowed up in victory - That is, totally conquered, abolished for ever.

15:55 O death, where is thy sting? - Which once was full of hellish poison. O hades, the receptacle of separate souls, where is thy victory - Thou art now robbed of all thy spoils; all thy captives are set at liberty. Hades literally means the invisible world, and relates to the soul; death, to the body. The Greek words are found in the Septuagint translation of #Hosea 13:14|. #Isaiah 25:8|

And when the saint go to sleep that means them who die with Jesus the Christ shall be change just like him.fully spirit.
  • Jesus said HE was flesh and bone not blood. I don 't know if that is important but He wasn 't bleeding all over the place even so Thomas was able to put his finger in His hand and side. Maybe the new body doesn 't need blood.
  • We will be changed from sinful to sinless human beings. This will make us immortal because sin results to death. The Bible says, "For the wages of sin is death...". In other words if there is no sin there is no death. We are still flesh and blood as Jesus is after His resurrection where He ate broiled fish (Luke 24:42)
