Our Sunday School lesson last Sunday was on the resurrection and the scripture text was from 1 Corinthians 15. However, as is always the case with Lifeway materials, they skipped over the only controversial verse in the chapter. So I will bring the question here—What is Paul talking about? Most commentary I have read suggests that Paul was merely recognizing a practice that existed in the First Century Greek world without approving of it. But this seems like a weak explanation because Paul was quick to denounce heresy wherever it was and he did not denounce this. He just mentions it and leaves it hanging out there as if there is nothing wrong with it. What do you think?
