How will our resurrection bodies be different from our earthly bodies?
How will those changes affect the body, soul, and spirit that comprise our human nature?
Paul answers these questions in this verse-by-verse study of 1 Cor. 15:40-45. Learn how we will be able to explore the entire universe in our new body, and how our new bodies will no longer grow old, never ache, never get sick, never fail, and never sin.
Listen and rejoice to what awaits each believer on that resurrection day.

The form and capabilities of the resurrected body has been a topic of discussion among Christians ever since Christ told the disciples that He was going to Heaven to prepare a place for them. Chapter 15 of 1 Corinthians is a treasure trove of information about our resurrected body.
Of course, those that do not believe in an afterlife, find no need to discuss what form the body they will spend eternity in. For them the grave is all that awaits their physical body, and they live their life in accordance with this belief. The secular world says eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die. The grave is it, and there is no value in thinking about the resurrection.
In this verse-by-verse study of 1 Cor. 15:29-39 Paul tells us about the value of the resurrection, and then he begins a description of the resurrected body.
Listen and rejoice to what God says about the body you will spend eternity in.

Contrary to what most religions will tell you, there is not just one general resurrection where, based on their works, God chooses the good from the bad, and the good go to heaven and the bad go to hell.
Absolutely not. There are multiple resurrections and they each have an important role in fulfilling God’s plan for the redemption of a sin-cursed earth and a sinful man.
In this verse-by-verse study of 1 Cor. 15:20-28 Paul tells us the order of these resurrections, and we will discuss which of the resurrections each of us will participate in, based on one single question, “Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, or not?”
Listen as Paul tells us that there is something beyond the grave for each of us, and we get to choose what that is.

This lesson is on the importance of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ. There is no middle ground on this subject. This is not an issue that as believers we can equivocate on and try to be politically correct so as not to offend anyone. We cannot say things like "Well, we can't be sure about the Resurrection, so let's not say too much about it."
This fact is so important that we must take our stand. We stand on a foundation; that foundation is the Rock, and the Rock is Christ. He came back from the dead.
Christianity rises and falls on that Rock.
If Christ did not rise, then our faith is in vain. Our sins and our iniquities cling to us still. Hell has triumphed. Death has won. Satan was victorious. The curse remains. Judgment for all looms. Our faith is folly.
Listen and glorify God as Paul confronts this issue head on. Christ did rise and He lives today. Rejoice as Paul describes in this verse-by-verse study of 1 Cor. 15:12-19 what the Resurrection means to you and I.
