Resurrection Bodies

Matt, Derek, and Alastair try to answer Paul's question in 1 Corinthians 15:35 — and ask questions about Paul's answer.

Christ is risen indeed! In this Easter season, Matt, Alastair, and Derek turn their attention to one of the most intriguing questions ever asked by Christians, namely, what exactly will our resurrection bodies be like? The answer may be more provocative than you think.

Good Question?
Not That Kind of Resurrection
Not That Kind of Flesh
Not That Kind of Spiritual
Continuity and Discontinuity
Like Jesus’s Body
Not That Kind of Birth
Marked by Our Histories
There’s Only One Resurrection
