Main point summary
Main point summary
Christ was raised first, and when he comes all who belong to him will also be raised. Then the all-victorious Christ will deliver the kingdom to his Father, so that God may rule over all things forever.
1 Corinthians 15:20-28
But in fact f Christ has been raised from the dead,
But it is a historical fact that Christ has been raised from the dead,
g the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
as the first portion of the harvest of believers who are planted in the ground.
For as h by a man came death,
It is fitting that he is the first portion of the harvest because just like death darkened the world through a man,
i by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead.
so through a man the reversal of death has exploded with light into the world.
For j as in Adam all die,
What I mean is that just like everyone in Adam dies,
so also in Christ shall all be made alive.
so everyone in Christ will be brought to life.
But each in his own order:
But when thinking about that, remember this: the resurrection must happen in order,
Christ the firstfruits,
with Christ being the first portion of the harvest,
then k at his coming l those who belong to Christ.
and those who belong to him being harvested when he comes.
Then comes the end,
After all who belong to Christ are reunited with their bodies, made immortal, only then will the end will come,
when he delivers m the kingdom to God the Father
when Christ will deliver his kingdom into the hands of God the Father,
after destroying n every rule and every authority and power.
after he has destroyed everything and everyone that stands against him.
For he must reign
Let me explain further about the end: I say that Jesus will reign
o until he has put all his enemies under his feet.
until he has put his foot on the neck of all his enemies,
The last enemy to be p destroyed is death.
the last of which to be destroyed is death,
For q “God 1 has put all things in subjection under his feet.”
because the Scripture says that "God has subjected all things under his feet," Jesus being the covenant Head of the new humanity, the second Adam.
But when it says, “all things are put in subjection,”
However , when the Scripture says that "all things are put in subjection,"
it is plain that he is excepted who put all things in subjection under him.
it is obvious that the one who put all things under his feet is excepted!
When r all things are subjected to him,
Therefore , once all things have been made subject to him,
then the Son himself will also be subjected to him who put all things in subjection under him,
the Son himself will subject himself to the one who made all things subject to him, the Father,
that s God may be all in all .
so that God may rule absolutely unchallenged over all things forever .
FB Live notes (Sept. 29/20): Isaac Dimba wrote, "I'm having problems in understanding verse 28. If you can do it in arcing and paraphrase, I'll appreciate it.” --- First, I connected all the small arcs in little pieces. Notice that 28 picks up the subject again from 25; therefore, I connected 25-27 before connecting them to 28. Concessive didn't seem to work to relate 25-26 to 27, since it gave 27 the logical emphasis. I chose Pos-Neg , since there's a contrast between them: "this, but not this." I see the emphasis in 20a-b in 20b, since the following verses are expanding upon the effects of Christ's resurrection, not the resurrection itself. --- My paraphrase of 22a-b showed me that it is not the Ground of 21a-b, but an Explanation of it. I chose Id-Exp for relating 24a to 24b-c because I see 25-28 as being an Explanation of 24b-c, not of 24a, which would have the emphasis if this were a Temporal relationship. My paraphrase also helped me see that 28 is an Inference from 25-27. Paul is showing why he said that Jesus will hand the kingdom to the Father in 24, so he quotes from Psalm 8 and then draws a conclusion from it in 28.
