Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 15:44

_ _ a natural body — literally, “an animal body,” a body molded in its organism of “flesh and blood” (1 Corinthians 15:50) to suit the animal soul which predominates in it. The Holy Spirit in the spirit of believers, indeed, is an earnest of a superior state (Romans 8:11), but meanwhile in the body the animal soul preponderates; hereafter the Spirit shall predominate, and the animal soul be duly subordinate.

_ _ spiritual body — a body wholly molded by the Spirit, and its organism not conformed to the lower and animal (Luke 20:35, Luke 20:36), but to the higher and spiritual, life (compare 1 Corinthians 2:14; 1 Thessalonians 5:23).

_ _ There is, etc. — The oldest manuscripts read, “IF there is a natural (or animal-souled) body, there is also a spiritual body.” It is no more wonderful a thing, that there should be a body fitted to the capacities and want of man’s highest part, his spirit (which we see to be the case), than that there should be one fitted to the capacities and wants of his subordinate part, the animal soul [Alford].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 15:35-50.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 15:44

It is sown in this world a merely animal body — Maintained by food, sleep, and air, like the bodies of brutes: but it is raised of a more refined contexture, needing none of these animal refreshments, and endued with qualities of a spiritual nature, like the angels of God.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 15:44

(24) It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.

(24) He shows perfectly in one word this change of the quality of the body by the resurrection, when he says that a natural body will become a spiritual body: which two qualities being completely different the one from the other he straightway expounds, and sets forth diligently.
