Sin, Death, and
What comes to all men as
the result of the Fall?
For as in Adam all
die, so in Christ all will made alive. 1
Corinthians 15:22. (See also Romans 5:12.)
In what condition is man
while in death?
Whatever your hand
finds to do, do it with all your might, for in
the grave, where you are going, there is
neither working nor planning nor knowledge or
Note That is, man,
when dead, has no use of powers of mind and body.
He cannot, therefore, while in the grave praise
God, or even think of Him (Psalm 6:5); for in the
day he dies his thoughts perish. Psalm 146:2-4.
Ransomed From The Grave
What has been promised in
order that man may be redeemed from this
I will ransom
them from the power of the grave; I will redeem
them from death. Where, O death, are your
plagues? Where, O grave, is your destruction.
Through who will come this
redemption from the grave?
For since death came
through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes
also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so
in Christ all will be made alive. 1
What would have been the
result to the dead had not Christ procured their
release from the grave?
For if the dead are
not raised, then Christ has not been raised
either. And if Christ has not been raised, your
faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then
those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are
lost. Verses 16-18.
Why did God give His
only-begotten Son to the world?
For God so loved the
world that he gave his one and only Son, that
whoever believes in him shall not perish but have
eternal life. John 3:16.
What did the Sadducees in
Christs time deny?
Some of the
Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection,
came to Jesus with a question. Luke 20:27.
How did Christ, from the
Old Testament Scriptures, prove the resurrection?
But in the account
of the bush, even Moses showed that the dead
rise, for he calls the Lord the God of
Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of
Jacob. He is not the God of the dead, but
of the living, for to him all are alive. Verses
Note That is, in view
of the resurrection of the fact that there
is to be a resurrection all who live unto
God. In His purpose, all are alive.
Under what illustration
from nature are the resurrection and the final
salvation of the righteous taught?
How foolish! What
you sow does not come to life unless it dies.
1 Corinthians 15:36. I tell you the
truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls
to the ground and
dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it
dies, it produces many seeds. John
Note The seed dies to
spring forth into new life. In this we are taught
the lesson of the resurrection. All who love God
will spring forth to life, and live again through
endless ages in the earth made new.
Whose voice raises the
Do not be amazed at
this, for a time is coming when all who
are in their graves will hear his voice and come
out those who have done good
will rise to live, and those who have done evil
will rise to be condemned. John
5:28,29. [Christs voice]
How many distinct classes
will have a resurrection?
And I have the same
hope in God as these men, that there will be a
resurrection of both the righteous and the
wicked. Acts 24:15.
When will the
resurrection of the just occur?
For the Lord
himself will come down from heaven, with a loud
command, with the voice of the archangel, and
with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in
Christ will rise first. 1 Thessalonians
4:16. (See also 1 Corinthians 15:23.)
When is the righteous to
And you will be
blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you
will be repaid at the resurrection of the
righteous. Luke 14:14.
[Second Coming of Christ]
In what condition did the
psalmist expect to rise?
And I in
righteousness I will see your face; when I
awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your
likeness. Psalm 17:15.
What great contrast
will be seen between the present body and the one
to be put on in the resurrection?
So will it be with
the resurrection of the dead. The body that is
sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable;
it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory;
it is sown in weakness, it is raised in
power; it is sown a natural body, it
is raised a spiritual body.
1 Corinthians 15:42-44.
After whose body will
these resurrected ones be fashioned?
But our citizenship
is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from
there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power
that enables him to bring everything under his
control, will transform our lowly bodies so
that they will be like his glorious body.
[Christs glorious body]
In what words is the
ultimate triumph over death and the grave
Where, O death is
your victory? Where, O death is your sting.
1 Corinthians 15:55.
How long will the
they can no longer die; for they are
like the angels. They are Gods children,
since they are children of the resurrection.
How long do the other
class wait after the first resurrection before
they are raised?
I saw thrones on
which were seated those who had been given
authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those
who had been beheaded because of the testimony
for Jesus and because of the word of God. They
had not worshiped the beast or his image and had
not taken the mark on their foreheads or their
hands. They came to life and reigned with
Christ for a thousand years. Revelation
What is to be their
They marched across
the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp
of Gods people, the city he loves. But
fire came down from heaven and devoured them.
Who are to share this
But the cowardly,
the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers,
the sexually immoral, those who practice
magic arts, the idolaters and all liars
their place will be in the fiery lake of
burning sulfur. This is the second death.
What is the last enemy
to be destroyed?
The last enemy to
be destroyed is death. 1 Corinthians
