DON'T BE FOOLISH BOOK OF 1 CORINTHIANS LESSon #27
Date of Sermon: February 16, 2014
Main Idea: It is foolish to reject the resurrection
Key Verse: "You foolish person! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies." 1 Corinthians 15:36
Bible Reading: 35 But someone will ask, “How are the dead raised? With what kind of body do they come?” 36 You foolish person! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. 37 And what you sow is not the body that is to be, but a bare kernel, perhaps of wheat or of some other grain. 38 But God gives it a body as he has chosen, and to each kind of seed its own body. 39 For not all flesh is the same, but there is one kind for humans, another for animals, another for birds, and another for fish. 40 There are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies, but the glory of the heavenly is of one kind, and the glory of the earthly is of another. 41 There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory.
