RE-IMAGINING THE RESURRECTION

“But someone will say, ‘How are the dead raised? And with what kind of body do they come?’” (1 Corinthians 15:35).

Faith often requires imagination beyond what we can see, hear, and comprehend (1 Corinthians 2:9). For example, Paul’s teaching on the bodily resurrection of the dead was, for the Corinthians, beyond any rational thought. They could think only in terms of a resuscitated corpse. Paul, however, is arguing for another kind of body; an imperishable body, fit for eternal dwelling with the eternal and resurrected Christ.
