From the bible this week: Resurrection bodies

Open1 Corinthians 15 is a dense passage, so much great stuff is in there.

At church on Sunday night, we had a sermon about resurrection bodies, and it got me very excited. It also clarified some thoughts in my head, though there is still much to clarify.

One thing that I learnt is that our bodies at the resurrection will be physical bodies, and also somehow spiritual bodies.

So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.

1 Corinthians 15:42-44.

The physical nature of our bodies was likened to Jesus’ risen body before the ascension, which I found to be a helpful comparison. Jesus was physical in the sense that Thomas could touch him (John 20:26-28) and he ate food (Luke 24:42-43), but his body was also spiritual as he somehow came among the disciples when the doors were locked (John 20:19-20).

I look forward to the day when I have a resurrection body. If only that day would be now!

If you have any thoughts on 1 Corinthians 15, let me know below.
