will be simultaneous both of the just and the unjust ( Daniel 12:2 ; John 5:28 John 5:29 ; Romans 2:6-16 ; 2 th 1:6-10 ). The qualities of the resurrection body will be different from those of the body laid in the grave ( 1 Corinthians 15:53 1 Corinthians 15:54 ; Phil 3:21 ); but its identity will nevertheless be preserved. It will still be the same body ( 1 Corinthians 15:42-44 ) which rises again.
As to the nature of the resurrection body, (1) it will be spiritual ( 1 Corinthians 15:44 ), i.e., a body adapted to the use of the soul in its glorified state, and to all the conditions of the heavenly state; (2) glorious, incorruptible, and powerful (54); (3) like unto the glorified body of Christ (Phil 3:21 ); and (4) immortal ( Revelation 21:4 ).
Christ's resurrection secures and illustrates that of his people. "
