Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 15:48

_ _ As is the earthy — namely, Adam.

_ _ they ... that are earthy — All Adam’s posterity in their natural state (John 3:6, John 3:7).

_ _ the heavenly — Christ.

_ _ they ... that are heavenly — His people in their regenerate state (Philippians 3:20, Philippians 3:21). As the former precedes the latter state, so the natural bodies precede the spiritual bodies.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 15:35-50.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 15:48

They that are earthy — Who continue without any higher principle. They that are heavenly — Who receive a divine principle from heaven.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 15:48

(27) As [is] the earthy, such [are] they also that are earthy: and as [is] the heavenly, such [are] they also that are heavenly.

(27) He applies both the earthly naturalness of Adam (if I may so say) to our bodies, so long as they are naturally conversant upon earth, that is, in this life, and in the grave. And also the spirituality of Christ to our same bodies, after they are risen again: and he says that the former goes before, and that this latter will follow.

and as:

Philippians 3:20-21 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: ... Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
