Chapter Summary

Defense of physical resurrection in this world begins with a defense of the belief in physical resurrection for a life in this world. The defense begins with an explanation as to why it is needed, gives a summary of the views that need to be refuted, and continues to present arguments and proofs in favor of the belief in resurrection. After this follows a long passage on the creation of man and the nature of the human soul based on Gen. 1-2 (Creation of man and the nature of the human soul), followed by an interpretation of the Garden of Eden account from Gen. 3 (Fall and restoration according to the Garden of Eden account). Both passages follow and comment on the respective biblical texts. Although this commentary covers most verses of these biblical passages, it is not a general verse-by-verse commentary.

Keywords: biblical texts; general verse-by-verse commentary; human soul; physical resurrection
