1 Corinthians 15:35-49 – Putting Humpty Dumpty Back Together Again

While still a young man, Benjamin Franklin wrote the following epitaph for himself: “Here lies the body of Benjamin Franklin, like the cover of an old book, its contents torn out, stripped of its lettering and gilding, food for worms. But its work shall not be lost; for it will once more appear in a new and more elegant edition, revised and corrected by The Author!”
Apparently Franklin understood the message of 1 Corinthians 15: “The body is sown perishable, it is raised imperishable, it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in honor, it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.” In today’s lesson, as we explore these facets of this “revised and corrected edition” of the body, we should be greatly encouraged
with the truth of the hope of the resurrection!
