This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 15:4. Ἐτάφη, He was buried) Mat 12:40. [Here the burial of Christ is more closely connected with His resurrection, than with His death. Assuredly, about the very moment of His death, the power of His life incapable of dissolution exerted itself, 1Pe 3:18; Mat 27:52. The grave was to Christ the Lord not the destined receptacle of corruption, but an apartment fitted for entering into life, Act 2:26.-V. g.]-ἐγήγερται, was raised again [rose again]) This enlarging on the resurrection of Christ is the more suitable on this account, that the epistle was written about the time of the passover; ch. 1Co 5:7, note. We must urge the weight of the subject of the resurrection, inasmuch as it is one which is made light of in the present day under various pretexts.-κατὰ τὰς γραφὰς, according to the Scriptures) which could not but be fulfilled.
