Resurrection Sunday - 1 Corinthians 15 - The Resurrection…So what? 


Hebrews 9:27–28 (ESV): 27 And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, 28 so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him. 


Psalm 31:14–15 (ESV): 14  But I trust in you, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.” 15  My times are in your hand; 


Psalm 139:16 (ESV): 16  Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. 


Matthew 6:25–28 (ESV): 25 “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?


2 Corinthians 5:6–10 (ESV): 6 So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, 7 for we walk by faith, not by sight. 8 Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord. 9 So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil. 


Philippians 1:18–23 (ESV): Yes, and I will rejoice, 19 for I know that through your prayers and the help of the Spirit of Jesus Christ this will turn out for my deliverance, 20 as it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by death. 21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. 22 If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. Yet which I shall choose I cannot tell. 23 I am hard pressed between the two. My desire is to depart and be with Christ, for that is far better. 


Vv. 1-3 - Paul begins this section with a summary of the Gospel. Jesus’s death, burial, and resurrection according to the Scriptures. That is, in line with the prophecies from the Old Testament. 


Application point - Stand on the Gospel and Hold Fast to the Preached Word


Vv. 4-11 - Paul explains more about what happened after Jesus’s resurrection. He also explains his own role as an apostle. He explains that he is undeserving, but worked hard because of grace. 


Application point - Realize it is by God’s grace you are what you are and you need work that His grace was not in vain.


Vv. 12-19 - Paul explains that there must be a resurrection from the dead because Jesus rose from the dead. If Jesus did not raise from the dead, then our lives as Christians are meaningless. 


Vv. 20-28 - Paul compares and contrasts Adam and Christ and shows that Jesus is the better Adam. We also see that Jesus is is ruling spiritually and will usher in the physical Kingdom at His return. Then Jesus will judge all and then hand the Kingdom over to the Father. We also see the bodily resurrection of those who have died in Christ first, and then those who are living at the time of His return. Those who are not in Christ will be raised bodily, but will suffer for eternity in the lake of fire. 


Vv. 29-34 - Paul exposes that illogical beliefs of some of the people in Corinth. He also says that if Christ has not been resurrected, then we should not waster our lives doing good, but rather should do whatever we want in this life. 


Application point - Be careful who you listen to.


Vv. 35-41 - Paul uses this section to explain that there are different “bodies” that exist and that God makes them all. They each have their own glory and purpose. 


Vv. 42-49 - Paul continues to explain that is necessary that we leave this physical body to be able to put on our resurrected body.


Vv. 50-58 - Paul ends this section by showing, that when this taking on of our resurrected bodies happens, we truly see that death is defeated and sin is destroyed. 


Application point - Keep working unto the Lord because your labor is not in vain.
