This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

1Co 6:14. Ἤγειρε-ἐξεγερεῖ, hath raised-and will raise) [Paul introduces here in the way of prelude those topics, which he was to discuss more fully and distinctly in ch. 15-V. g.] The simple verb is appropriately applied to [Christ] the first fruits, the compound, of rare occurrence, to the general mass of them that sleep. Εξ in composition often signifies consummation. The practical application from the resurrection of our flesh is, sin once committed in the flesh will never be undone.-διὰ, by) Paul would rather connect this with the mentioning of the resurrection, than with that of destruction.-δυνάμεως, power) who then can doubt? God is omnipotent.
