How can you comprehend the resurrection of the body?

Share |

The resurrection of the body is such an overwhelming matter, that I cannot comprehend it with my mind, but I believe it with child-like faith because God teaches it in His Word, and because it is not based on our human abilities, but on God’s power.

For God, who created the world out of nothing through His Word, nothing is impossible. He is able merely by His Word to call forth also all the dead.

Matt. 22:29: (Jesus said to the Sadducees who did not believe in the resurrection of the body): Ye do err, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God.

Matt. 11:25: At that time Jesus answered and said: I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

Rom. 4:17: Abraham believed, even God, Who quickeneth the dead and calleth those things which be not as though they were.

Rom. 4:21: And (Abraham) being fully persuaded that what He (God) had promised He was able also to perform.

Assignment: Read Matt. 22:23-33: Jesus and the Sadducees, and 1 Cor. 15: The Apostle Paul teaches concerning the resurrection of the body.
