E. The Definition of Resurrection

1. The Body of Resurrection

35 But someone will say, How are the dead raised? And with what kind of body do they come?

36 Foolish man, 1what you sow is not made alive unless it adies;

37 And what you sow, you do not sow the body that will be, but a bare grain, perhaps of wheat or of some other of the rest.

38 But God gives it a 1body even as He willed, and to each of the seeds its own 1body.

39 1All aflesh is not the same flesh, but one is of bmen, and another flesh is of ccattle, and another is of dbirds, and another is of fish.

40 There are also heavenly bodies and earthly bodies; but the glory of the heavenly is one thing, and that of the earthly is another.

41 There is another glory of the asun, and another glory of the bmoon, and another glory of the cstars; for star differs from star in glory.

42 So aalso is the bresurrection of the dead. It is sown in ccorruption, it is draised in incorruption;

43 It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in aglory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;

44 It is sown a 1asoulish body, it is raised a 1bspiritual cbody. If there is a soulish body, there is also a spiritual one.

2. A Spiritual Body

45 So also it is written, "The first man, aAdam, became a bliving 1soul''; the last Adam became a clife-giving 1Spirit.

46 But 1the spiritual is not first but 2the soulish, then the spiritual:

47 The first man is 1out of the aearth, earthy; the 2second man is 3out of bheaven.

48 As 1the earthy is, such are 2they also that are earthy; and as 3the heavenly is, such are 4they also that are aheavenly.

49 And even as we have borne the 1aimage of the earthy, we will also bear the 1bimage of the heavenly.
