5 Facts About the Resurrection

1. Christ is the ground and basis of our resurrection - The Firstfruits (Lev.23:10,11; 1Cor.15:20). - No longer "dust to dust" but "out of dust" (Dan.12:2).

2. There cannot be a physical resurrection unless there has been a spiritual resurrection first (1Cor.15:36; Rom.6:3ff; Rom.8:9-11; Eph.2:1-6; Col.3:1,2)

3. Resurrection is not a restoration of the same body. It is the creation of a new body (1Cor.15:42; Rom.8:19-23; Phil.3:20)

4. Resurrection of the just will be at the time of Christ's second coming (1Thess.4:16)

5. The wicked will also be resurrected (Acts 24:15; Rev.20:11-13), but for judgment.
