Chapter Summary

In 1 Corinthians 15 Paul addresses those Corinthians who rejected a resurrection at the end of time. In his reply Jesus' resurrection and future coming play a crucial role. With the help of these two notions Paul develops three ideas in order to convince the Corinthians of the future reality of the eschatological resurrection: (a) Jesus' resurrection is the beginning of the eschatological resurrection; (b) the eschatological resurrection will take place through participation in Jesus' resurrection; (c) the eschatological resurrection will take place at the time of Jesus' coming in glory. The expectation of the eschatological resurrection was simply taken over from Judaism. The expectation of Jesus' coming at the end of time originated as the Christian version of expectation of the coming Son of Man. In the idea that Jesus' resurrection inaugurated the eschatological resurrection, two different traditions bearing upon resurrection are connected.
