I Cor. xv:12-2[ Now Is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept. I Cor. xv:20. Verses 12-1 '•', Does the doctrine of the resurrection of body, rest upon revelatlrn or upon reason? Providing the soul is immortal, Is It, or not, of material ' Importance whether the body is raised or not? If there Is no resurrection of the dead, It follows as Paul here states,, that Christ is not. risen; hut is the converse true, that if Christ is risen then all human beings will necessar. l!y be resurrected? It Beerns that some in Corinth de. nlsd the resurrection of the dead In the sense that there Is no life after death; now If that were true, then how much would there be left of Christianity? What Is the process of reasoning that demonstrates the fact of immortality? What Is the scripture proof of life after death? Can you mention a single nation or tribe of the past, or at the present, which has not, believed In immortality in some shape? Verses 14-17.—-If there is no resurrection of the dead, how would that i make their preaching vain, make our! faith vain, and make them false wit- neswes? Verses LS-IO.—How is it that all men instinctively believe in the immortality of their departed friends, and expect to meet them again? It. was doubtless true In Paul's day that if there svas no Immortality Christians were all men most miserable, because they were then despised, Imprisoned and put to death; but is the same true today? Is not Christ's religion now a grand thing for this world, even if death did end all? Verse 20—What is the ""chief eVi- dence of the truth of Christianity? What Is the truth that Jesus did rise from the dead? (See Matt, xxvi: 1(5-18; Mark xv!:l4; Luke xxiv: :\f>-:'A; John xx:; Acts 1:3,V.\,V!,'A\; I Cor. xv;3-8, et se<].) Is the fact of theresurrectlon of Jesus to be proved by evidence, like any other fact, and IB there any other historic fact better attested? Why was It, when Jesus was cruel- fled that His disciples were a dispirited band, havlnglost heart, and going back to their former occupation, and what was it afterwards that put new life In them, antl made them the most courageous men that ever lived? What became the prominent theme of their preaching? IB it credible that such noble men, who afterward laid down their ll'/es for the truth, would testify tnat they had seen and talked to Jesus after his death, if they had not so seen him? Verse 21-22 Would there have been natural death If there had been no sin? Would there have been any resurrection of the dead, if Jesus hrul not been resurrected? Verses 23-28—Was Christ tWflrst man to rise from the dead? When will the general resurrection be? Will Christ finally abolish death and destroy sin? Has Cod put all the forces of nature under the-control of Jesns? Lesson for Sunday, Apiil 18, 1909 --The Conversion of Saul. Acts Subscribe for the Brgus ion Qosp . L.
