God Will Be Utterly Supreme Over Everything, Everywhere
Passage: 1 Corinthians 15:20–:34
Point # 1: an explanation of the meaning and significance of Christ’s resurrection from the dead (20-28)
Three truths are assumed by Paul that are utterly crucial to his argument:
· Paul views the coming, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ in thoroughly redemptive-historical and eschatological categories.
· Paul assumes an indissoluble union between the resurrection of Christ and the bodily resurrection of believers.
· Paul views the resurrection of Christ in light of God’s sovereign purposes.
Point # 2 “If Christ is not raised”... further implications (29-34)
