Everytime I read 1 Corinthians 15, I always get puzzled over the expression "baptized for the dead" from Verse 29. Does it mean that living Christians were baptized for dead Christians that were never baptized? Does it refer to baptizing professing Christians who were inevitably going to die (i.e. Constantine ) in a very short time due to some sickness? Does it refer to actually baptizing a dead body/corpse before it is buried? What do you think?
