1 Corinthians 15

 

 

Other Authors
Verse 4-5
and that he appeared to Cephas; then to the twelve;
    THIRD AND FOURTH APPEARANCES OF JESUS.

    (Sunday afternoon)

    Mark 16:12,13; Luke 24:13-35; 1 Corinthians 15:5

  1. He was seen by Cephas. See 1 Corinthians 15:5.

    SIXTH APPEARANCE OF JESUS.

    (Sunday, one week after the resurrection)

    John 20:26-31; 1 Corinthians 15:5

  2. Then by the twelve. See John 20:26.


Verse 6
then he appeared to above five hundred brethren at once1, of whom the greater part remain until now, but some are fallen asleep;
    EIGHTH APPEARANCE OF JESUS. (A mountain in Galilee.) Matthew 28:16,17; 1 Corinthians 15:6

  1. Then he appeared to above five hundred brethren at once. See 1 Corinthians 15:6 and see 1 Corinthians 15:6.


Verse 7
then he appeared to James1; then to all the apostles;
    NINTH AND TENTH APPEARANCES OF JESUS. (Jerusalem.) Luke 24:44-49; Acts 1:3-8; 1 Corinthians 15:7

  1. Then he appeared to James. Of this appearance also we have no details.


Verse 8
and last of all, as to the [child] untimely born, he appeared to me also1.
    OUR LORD APPEARS AFTER HIS ASCENSION. 1 Corinthians 15:8

  1. And last of all, as to the [child] untimely born, he appeared to me also. Since Paul reckons this among the bodily appearances of our Lord, we have included it in our work; but it borders upon those spiritual appearances which belong rather to apostolic history and may be classed with the vision of Stephen (Acts 7:55) and John (Revelation 1:9-17), to which it was near kin. Accounts of the appearance will be found in Acts 9:3-8; Acts 22:6-11; Acts 26:12-18.
