    VERSE (5) -
    Lu 24:34 *etc:

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:5

    y que apareci a Cefas, y despus a los doce.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 15:5

    Verse 5. That he was seen of
    Cephas, then of the twelve] This refers to the journey to Emmaus, Luke xxiv. 13, 34; and to what is related Mark xvi. 14.

    Then of the twelve] Instead of dwdeka, twelve, endeka, eleven, is the reading of D*EFG, Syriac in the margin, some of the Slavonic, Armenian, Vulgate, Itala, and several of the fathers; and this reading is supported by Mark xvi. 14. Perhaps the term twelve is used here merely to point out the society of the apostles, who, though at this time they were only eleven, were still called the twelve, because this was their original number, and a number which was afterward filled up. See John xx. 24.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 5. And that he was seen of Cephas , etc.] Or Simon Peter; for Cephas was a name given him by Christ, ( John 1:42). This was not another Cephas, one of the seventy disciples, as Clemens suggests f317 , but the Apostle Peter himself, to whom it is certain the Lord appeared. Not that he was the first person by whom Christ was seen after his resurrection, for he first appeared to Mary Magdalene, ( Mark 16:9) but the testimony of the women the apostle omits, and it seems as if Peter was the first of the men that saw Christ when risen, (see Luke 24:34). Whether he was one of the disciples that went to Emmaus, to whom Christ joined himself, and entered into discourse with, is not certain; it should rather seem, that the appearance here referred to was when he was alone; then of the twelve ; though there were then but eleven of them, Judas being gone from them, and having destroyed himself; and at the first appearance of Christ to them, there were but ten present, Thomas being absent; and yet because their original number, when first chosen and called, were twelve, they still went by the same name; (see John 20:24 Genesis 42:13).

    The appearance or appearances here referred to are those in ( John 20:19,26). The Vulgate Latin reads the eleven; and so the Claromontane exemplar.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - The word resurrection, usually points out our existence beyond the grave. Of the apostle's doctrine not a trace can be found in all the teaching of philosophers. The doctrine of Christ's death an resurrection, is the foundation of Christianity. Remove this, and all our hopes for eternity sink at once. And it is by holding this trut firm, that Christians stand in the day of trial, and are kept faithfu to God. We believe in vain, unless we keep in the faith of the gospel This truth is confirmed by Old Testament prophecies; and many saw Christ after he was risen. This apostle was highly favoured, but he always had a low opinion of himself, and expressed it. When sinner are, by Divine grace, turned into saints, God causes the remembrance of former sins to make them humble, diligent, and faithful. He ascribes to Divine grace all that was valuable in him. True believers, though no ignorant of what the Lord has done for, in, and by them, yet when the look at their whole conduct and their obligations, they are led to fee that none are so worthless as they are. All true Christians believ that Jesus Christ, and him crucified, and then risen from the dead, in the substance of Christianity. All the apostles agreed in thi testimony; by this faith they lived, and in this faith they died.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    5. Was seen (wfqh). Rev., appeared. The word most commonly used in the New Testament for seeing visions. See on
    Luke xxii. 43. Compare the kindred ojptasia vision, Luke i. 22; Acts xxvi. 19; 2 Cor. xii. 1.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    15:5 {And that he appeared to
    Cephas} (kai hoti wfqe kefai). First aorist passive indicative of the defective verb horaw, to see. Paul means not a mere "vision," but actual appearance. John uses efanerwqe (#Joh 21:14) from fanerow, to make manifest, of Christ's appearance to the seven by the Sea of Galilee. Peter was listed first (prwtos) among the Apostles (#Mt 10:2). Jesus had sent a special message to him (#Mr 16:7) after his resurrection. this special appearance to Peter is made the determining factor in the joyful faith of the disciples (#Lu 24:34), though mentioned incidentally here. Paul had told all these four facts to the Corinthians in his preaching. He gives further proof of the fact of Christ's resurrection. There are ten appearances given besides the one to Paul. Nine are in the Gospels (Mary Magdalene in John and Mark, the other women in Matthew, the two going to Emmaus in Luke, Simon Peter in Luke and I Corinthians, the ten apostles and others in Luke and John and Mark, the eleven and others in John, the seven by the sea in John, to over five hundred in Galilee in Matthew and Paul and Mark, to the apostles in Jerusalem in Luke and Mark and Acts and I Corinthians) and one in I Corinthians above (to James). It will be seen that Paul mentions only five of the ten, one, that to James, not given elsewhere. What he gives is conclusive evidence of the fact, particularly when re-enforced by his own experience (the sixth appearance mentioned by Paul). The way to prove this great fact is to start with Paul's own witness given in this undoubted epistle. The natural way to understand Paul's adverbs of time here is chronological: {qen} (eita), {qen} (epeita), {qen} (epeita), {qen} (eita), {last of all} (escaton pantwn). {To the twelve} (tois dwdeka). The technical name. Only ten were present, for Judas was dead and Thomas was absent (#Joh 20:24).
