Some 1 Corinthians 15 Preteristic Comparisons to other Scriptures

* Some 1 Corinthians 15 Preteristic Comparisons to other Scriptures


Matthew 24 (early verses) compared to 1 Corinthians 15

Matthew 24
1And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple (the law): and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. 2And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. 12Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold (believed in vain), 13but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. 14And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.

1 Corinthians 15
2By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain (will grow cold). 24Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. 56The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law (the temple). 58Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

2 Corinthians 3 compared to 1 Corithians 15

2 Corinthians 3 The Covenant Change / Glory of the New Covenant
7Now if the ministry that brought death, which was engraved in letters on stone, came with glory, so that the Israelites could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of its glory, fading though it was, 8will not the ministry of the Spirit be even more glorious?10For what was glorious has no glory now in comparison with the surpassing glory. 17Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 18But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

They were being TRANSFORMED into the SAME IMAGE from GLORY (Old Covenant) to GLORY (New Covenant). If they are in the New Covenant then they have been TRANSFORMED into the Lord's IMAGE.

1 Corinthians 15
45And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
47The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven. 48As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. 49And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

Hebrews 10 (time texts) compared to 1 Corinthians 15

Hebrews 10
1The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming—not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship 13Since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool, 37For in just a very little while, "He who is coming will come and will not delay. 38But my righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back (need to stand firm), I will not be pleased with him."39But we are not of those who shrink back (believed in vain) and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved.

1 Corinthians 15
2By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly (don't shrink back) to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain (shrink back) 25For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. 56The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 58Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm (don't shrink back). Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

Matthew 16 compared to 1 Corinthians 15

Matthew 16
27For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father's glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done. 28I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom."

1 Corinthians 15
51Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed

It would be fair to say that 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 should be added, and in fact will help in the understanding of the other passages referred to in this post and comments.

Yes Hebrews 10 compared to 1Cor 15 is pretty powerful =)

I always like to trick people...get them to understand Hebrews 9-11, then say, "Now look at 2 Cor 5" and after that "Look at 1 Cor 15"...weird, eh? 

 

Same with Romans 11 and the latter half of Romans 8. 

 

Love comparing Scripture with Scripture.  However, most people I run into these days say that because Paul (or the translation, I guess) doesn't use exact same phrasing, that he must be talking about different things.  But my point is always this: "When you try to teach me something you know, don't you usually reiterate the idea in different ways so I fully understand it?"

 

Bible is fun.
