1 Corinthians 15:36 – 38

J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)

Parallels in nature help us to grasp the truths of the resurrection

35-38 But perhaps someone will ask, “How is the resurrection achieved? With what sort of body do the dead arrive?” Now that is talking without using your minds! In your own experience you know that a seed does not germinate without itself “dying”. When you sow a seed you do not sow the “body” that will eventually be produced, but bare grain, of wheat, for example, or one of the other seeds. God gives the seed a “body” according to his laws — a different “body” to each kind of seed.
