Bible Notes on “He Has Snatched Victory From the Jaws of Defeat”

Near the end of his first letter to the believers in the city of Corinth, the apostle Paul begins reviewing the fundamentals of the gospel he preached which, of course, included the death and resurrection of Jesus.  This starts at 1 Corinthians 15:1.  By verse 35, he begins speaking in specific terms about the resurrection of everyone else.  When he gets to verse 55, he’s quoting from the Old Testament prophet Hosea (Hosea 13:14).  In Hosea’s day, people wondered how God was going to remove the sting from death.  In Jesus’ day, God’s solution was revealed in a most glorious way.

In Matthew 22:23-32 Jesus speaks of the heavenly nature of resurrection for human beings.
