Justified: 1 Corinthians 15

1 Corinthians 15:42-58

When Jesus rose from the dead, he became “life-giving Spirit.”  This means he entered into a new form of existence.  Christ’s new glorified body now suits his new glorified life—just as Adam’s human body was suitable to his natural life.  When we will be resurrected, God will give us a glorified body suited to our new eternal life.  A trumpet blast will usher in the new heaven and earth.  The Jews would understand the significance of this because trumpets were always blown to signal the start of great feasts and other extraordinary events.
