    VERSE (6) -
    Mt 28:10,16,17 Mr 16:7

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 15:6

    Despus apareci a ms de quinientos hermanos juntos; de los cuales muchos viven an, y otros son muertos.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 1 Corinthians 15:6

    Verse 6. Above five
    hundred brethren at once] This was probably in Galilee, where our Lord had many disciples. See Matthew xxviii. 16. What a remarkable testimony is this to the truth of our Lord's resurrection! Five hundred persons saw him at one time; the greater part of whom were alive when the apostle wrote, and he might have been confronted by many if he had dared to assert a falsity.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 6. After that he was seen of above five
    hundred brethren at once , etc.] Not at, or near Jerusalem, for the number of the disciples that were together there, made but about an hundred and twenty, ( Acts 1:15) but in Galilee, where Christ, in the days of his flesh, had most chiefly conversed, most frequently preached and wrought his miracles, and where the number of his disciples and followers were very large: here he promised his disciples to go before them, and show himself to them after his resurrection, as he accordingly did, ( Matthew 26:32 2:7,16,17). And this being signified by the apostles to the brethren there, it is no wonder that there was such a number of them gathered on that occasion: of whom the greater part remain unto this present ; and so might be personally applied unto for the truth of this, was it necessary; it being but about five or six and twenty years ago at the writing of this epistle: and some were fallen asleep ; were dead, as it might be reasonably thought there were among so many, and in such a length of time; though doubtless these had surviving friends, relations, and acquaintance, to whom they had communicated this important case, and who were ready to attest what they had heard them in the most solemn manner declare.

    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.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    15:6 {To above five
    hundred brethren at once} (epanw pentakosiois adelfois efapax). epanw here is just an adverb with no effect on the case. As a preposition with the ablative see #Mt 5:14. this incident is the one described in #Mt 28:16 the prearranged meeting on the mountain in Galilee. The strength of this witness lies in the fact that the majority (hoi pleious) of them were still living when Paul wrote this epistle, say spring of A.D. 54 or 55, not over 25 years after Christ's resurrection.
