Lazarus and others died of the "first death" and were raised back to the same earthly body as before they died. Their ultimate fate was still to be determined, be it everlasting life or the "second death" on judgement day. Jesus died of the "second death" to pay the penalty of death for believers. He was raised up in full glory as a conquerer, and it is ...

Christ was raised in a glorified, or spiritual body: So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. (1 Corinthians 15:42–44; NIV) ...

So if the dead are already with Jesus where are the dead in Christ rising from? Those who died in faith in the Old Testament are to be raised at the second coming of Christ. Daniel 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. Hebrews 11:40 God ...

This is a very common mistake. If you only read verses 16 and 17: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ...

Just as those that rose with Christ when he was resurrected, those that rise first after the second coming will rise from their graves: 52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, 53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. (Matt 27:52-53) ...

When Christians say "Jesus died for our sins", what do they mean? This is a reference to 1 Corinthians 15:3: For I handed on to you as of first importance what I in turn had received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures. Different Christians understand "Christ died for our sins" in different ways; there have been ...

I suppose this is not what you want to hear, but: The separation of spirit and body is death. That means immortality implies that spirit and body will not be separated again. Resurrection makes us immortal. This is the logic I would follow: Resurrection -> body immortal -> spirit & body inseparable Instead of what seems to be your logic: Resurrection ...

Paul is not making any sort of argument here. he is not asking us to "follow the logic" here. After all, what logical argument would you use in a discussion centered on people rising from the dead? Paul is teaching doctrine here. He is declaring that Jesus has conquered and is the master of death. If your understanding is that Paul is putting forward ...

Romans 8:29 To Paul, resurrection makes us all sons of God, but Jesus was the first. We see this in Romans 1:4, where Paul tells us Jesus was the Son of God by the fact of his resurrection: 4 And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead: Paul promised his followers that they ...
