15:35With what kind of body do they come. In this verse Paul considers what was apparently the primary objection raised by some of the Corinthians against a bodily resurrection. They were probably influenced by dualism, a pagan philosophy that contrasted the immaterial with the physical and argued that the immaterial was good but the material was evil. Along such lines some of the Christians had developed disdain for the human body, probably distorting their ideas about sexual relationships (6:14 note). They seem to have thought that since body was evil, the doctrine of the Resurrection meant that dishonorable bodies would be raised. Paul regards their position as foolish (v. 36) and gives an extensive discussion of the matter (vv. 36–49).
