Today’s Insight to the Word

The Bible Knowledge Commentary elaborates on Paul’s teaching in 1 Corinthians 15:35–37 about “how foolish it is” to ask about our resurrection bodies: “Belief in the Resurrection was like belief in seedtime and harvest. Neither could be completely understood but both were real. As a plant which sprouted from a seed was directly linked to it but remarkably different from it, so too was the relationship of a natural and a resurrected body.” Our resurrection body will be so much more than our natural body, which is weak, imperfect, and temporal. Elsewhere Paul states: “Our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who . . . will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body” (Philippians 3:20–21). We will be like Him!
