Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 15:49

_ _ asGreek, “even as” (see Genesis 5:3).

_ _ we shall also bear — or wear as a garment [Bengel]. The oldest manuscripts and versions read, “We must also bear,” or “let us also bear.” It implies the divine appointment (compare “must,” 1 Corinthians 15:53) and faith assenting to it. An exhortation, and yet implying a promise (so Romans 8:29). The conformity to the image of the heavenly Representative man is to be begun here in our souls, in part, and shall be perfected at the resurrection in both bodies and souls.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 15:35-50.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 15:49

The image of the heavenly — Holiness and glory.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 15:49

And as we have borne the (b) image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

(b) Not a vain and false image, but such a one as indeed had the truth with it.
