    • 1. XVI: THE RAPTURE AND THE RESURRECTION Paul States the Facts
    • 2. Modern Christians too easily treat teachings on the Rapture and Resurrection as optional add-ons to an otherwise effective Christian life. Paul considered these teachings “elementary” (Hebrews 6:1) with respect to the Christian experience. So, dear Watson, let’s deal with all things elementary.

    • 7. I CORINTHIANS 15: 51 “I” the writer, “YOU” the reader and “WE” the combination of the two: Does Paul talk to you and me? Does Paul include us 21st century Christians when he writes to 1st century Corinthians? 51. Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed-

    • 9. I CORINTHIANS 15:52 HOW FAST WHEN EVENT 1: The Dead Rise EVENT 2: “We” (the living and the dead) all ‘change’ together. 52. in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

But they were startled and frightened and thought that they were seeing a spirit. 38. And He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? 39. “See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself; touch Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” (Luke 24)

    • 17. I CORINTHIANS 15:54+5 54.
