Darby's Synopsis of the New Testament

1 Corinthians 15

Introduction

1:2 saints, (a-17) Saints by [divine] calling.

Verse 1

15:1 announced (d-13) Lit. 'evangelized.'

Verse 2

15:2 announced (d-15) Lit. 'evangelized.'

Verse 8

15:8 abortion, (e-8) Or 'one born out of due time.' As LXX, Job 3:16 ; Ecclesiastes 6:3 .

Verse 12

15:12 raised (a-9) 'Are not raised,' vers. 15,16, applies to the abstract fact whenever it may be; the doctrinal fact as to dead people; 'he (Christ) is raised,' vers. 12,13,16,20, is an accomplished but continuing fact. The English tenses do not always secure this distinction. I have not put 'do not rise,' because then the thought of being raised by God is lost.

Verse 15

15:15 raised. (a-34) 'Are not raised,' vers. 15,16, applies to the abstract fact whenever it may be; the doctrinal fact as to dead people; 'he (Christ) is raised,' vers. 12,13,16,20, is an accomplished but continuing fact. The English tenses do not always secure this distinction. I have not put 'do not rise,' because then the thought of being raised by God is lost.

Verse 16

15:16 raised; (a-13) 'Are not raised,' vers. 15,16, applies to the abstract fact whenever it may be; the doctrinal fact as to dead people; 'he (Christ) is raised,' vers. 12,13,16,20, is an accomplished but continuing fact. The English tenses do not always secure this distinction. I have not put 'do not rise,' because then the thought of being raised by God is lost.

Verse 23

15:23 rank. (b-6) * A military term.

Verse 24

15:24 Father; (c-16) It is almost impossible to render the Greek idiom, which unites with one article either two qualities of the same person, or two persons under the same quality. But I prefer this awkward English to 'God, even the Father,' because this phrase is uncertain in doctrine, and might be used as meaning that the Father only is God, which is not the sense.

Verse 25

15:25 all (d-8) Lit. 'all the enemies.' all those recognized or objectively manifested as such.

Verse 27

15:27 feet. (e-11) See Psalms 8:6 .

Verse 29

15:29 for (f-6) Or 'in place of,' 'in view of.' Lit. 'over.'

Verse 32

15:32 beasts (g-13) The expression 'fought with beasts' is used figuratively as well as literally. die. (h-38) See Isaiah 22:13 .

Verse 34

15:34 ignorant (i-10) Lit. 'have ignorance.' On the whole, 'ignorant of God' gives the sense. 'Have not the knowledge' is weak. 'No knowledge' does not meet the case. It refers to the true character of God.

Verse 39

15:39 fishes. (a-26) Or 'that of men is one, the flesh of beasts another, the flesh of birds another, of fishes another.'

Verse 44

15:44 natural (b-5) natural (b-17) i.e. having natural life through the living soul.

Verse 45

15:45 written, (c-5) See Genesis 2:7 . quickening (d-18) Making alive.

Verse 46

15:46 natural, (b-13) i.e. having natural life through the living soul.

Verse 54

15:54 written. (e-25) See Isaiah 25:8 .

Verse 55

15:55 victory? (f-11) See Hosea 13:14 .
