Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

1 Corinthians 15:50

_ _ (See on 1 Corinthians 15:37; see on 1 Corinthians 15:39). “Flesh and blood” of the same animal and corruptible nature as our present (1 Corinthians 15:44) animal-souled bodies, cannot inherit the kingdom of God. Therefore the believer acquiesces gladly in the unrepealed sentence of the holy law, which appoints the death of the present body as the necessary preliminary to the resurrection body of glory. Hence he “dies daily” to the flesh and to the world, as the necessary condition to his regeneration here and hereafter (John 3:6; Galatians 2:20). As the being born of the flesh constitutes a child of Adam, so the being born of the Spirit constitutes a child of God.

_ _ cannot — Not merely is the change of body possible, but it is necessary. The spirit extracted from the dregs of wine does not so much differ from them, as the glorified man does from the mortal man [Bengel] of mere animal flesh and blood (Galatians 1:16). The resurrection body will be still a body though spiritual, and substantially retaining the personal identity; as is proved by Luke 24:39; John 20:27, compared with Philippians 3:21.

_ _ the kingdom of God — which is not at all merely animal, but altogether spiritual. Corruption doth not inherit, though it is the way to, incorruption (1 Corinthians 15:36, 1 Corinthians 15:52, 1 Corinthians 15:53).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 1 Corinthians 15:35-50.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Corinthians 15:50

But first we must be entirely changed; for such flesh and blood as we are clothed with now, cannot enter into that kingdom which is wholly spiritual: neither doth this corruptible body inherit that incorruptible kingdom.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

1 Corinthians 15:50

(28) Now this I say, brethren, that (c) flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

(28) The conclusion: we cannot be partakers of the glory of God unless we put off all that gross and filthy nature of our bodies subject to corruption, that the same body may be adorned with incorruptible glory.

(c) Flesh and blood are taken here for a living body, which cannot attain to incorruption, unless it puts off corruption.
