Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 15:18

_ _ fallen asleep in Christ — in communion with Christ as His members. “In Christ’s case the term used is death, to assure us of the reality of His suffering; in our case, sleep, to give us consolation: In His case, His resurrection having actually taken place, Paul shrinks not from the term death; in ours, the resurrection being still only a matter of hope, he uses the term falling asleep” [Photius, Quaestiones Amphilochiae, 197].

_ _ perished — Their souls are lost; they are in misery in the unseen world.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 15:12-19.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
