This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 15:43. Ἐν ἀτιμίᾳ, in dishonour) in nakedness, 1Co 15:37, to which is opposed glory, which is as it were a garment put on, 1Co 15:53; 1Co 15:49.-σπείρεται ἐν ἀσθενείᾳ, is sown in weakness. The figure is continued; but in the reality itself, a transition is made, that similitude being now finished, to a new part of the answer, of which this is the proposition [the statement to be elucidated]: There is a natural and there is a spiritual body. The expressions, in power, 1Co 15:43, and a spiritual body, 1Co 15:44, are akin to one another, Luk 1:17 : just as incorruption and glory, 1Co 15:42-43.
