Two Questions

How are the dead raised?
With what kind of body do they come?

Paul spends several verses on the seed that is
sown, the bare kernel such as a grain of wheat.
What grows from that seed is God's choice.

Paul says that all flesh is not the same flesh:

One flesh of men
Another flesh of animals
Another flesh of birds
Another of fish.

He continues:

Heavenly bodies and earthly bodies differ
      in glory.
Even the stars differ in glory.

Glen and I were watching a dvd in which the
heavens were displayed as one galaxy after
another appeared on the screen. To compare
a grain of wheat with a galaxy is not a fair

The glory of the heavenly is one
The glory of the earthly is another.

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.

So, reader, where am I going with this? It is
not where I am going but where Paul is
going. I am trying to unpack something that
is beyond comprehension! It keeps getting
fuller as the organist pulls out all the stops...
