How Our Spiritual Body Is Different From Our Physical Body

Episode 37 Show Notes
What's the Difference Between Our Spiritual Body and Physical Body?

From the Show

What is the difference between the spiritual body in 1 Corinthians 15 and the physical body we now possess?

When Paul therefore says "For this mortal body must put on immortality." He's not saying “for this mortal body must be exchanged for an immortal body.” He said, “No, this same body that is mortal now must put on immortality.” That's what it is to have a spiritual body. It's a different condition, not a different body. It's spiritual not in the sense that it's no longer physical but in the sense that it's no longer subject to decay and death to temptation and sin to sorrow and suffering in other words will be just like Jesus.— Michael Horton
