Reformation Study Bible – 1 Cor 15:12
1 Cor 15:12

15:12 there is no resurrection. Paul finally addresses the problem that needs correction. Some of the Corinthians, perhaps without denying that Jesus had been raised, were questioning the doctrine of the resurrection because of their unbiblical understanding of the human body (v. 35 note). Paul needed to show them that the resurrection of Jesus cannot be separated from the resurrection of those who are His (vv. 20–23). If their resurrection is not true, neither is His. But to deny, even by implication, that Jesus’ body was raised from the tomb destroys the message of the gospel.
