    1Thessalonians 4:14

    Early Christian Commentary - (A.D. 100 - A.D. 325)

    Anf-01 Pg 71
    Isa. xxvi. 19.

    and that He Himself “shall take [upon Him] our weaknesses, and bear our sorrows,”4312


    Anf-01 ix.vii.xvi Pg 2
    Isa. xxvi. 19.

    And again: “I will comfort you, and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem: and ye shall see, and your heart shall rejoice, and your bones shall flourish as the grass; and the hand of the Lord shall be known to those who worship Him.”4576


    Anf-01 ix.vii.xxxv Pg 2
    Isa. xxvi. 19.

    And this again Ezekiel also says: “Behold, I will open your tombs, and will bring you forth out of your graves; when I will draw my people from the sepulchres, and I will put breath in you, and ye shall live; and I will place you on your own land, and ye shall know that I am the Lord.”4748


    Anf-03 v.viii.xxxi Pg 5
    Isa. xxvi. 19.

    In another passage it is written: “All flesh shall come to worship before me, saith the Lord.”7493


    Anf-01 ix.iv.xix Pg 14
    1 Cor. xv. 12.

    he continues, rendering the reason of His incarnation, “For since by man came death, by man [came] also the resurrection of the dead.” And everywhere, when [referring to] the passion of our Lord, and to His human nature, and His subjection to death, he employs the name of Christ, as in that passage: “Destroy not him with thy meat for whom Christ died.”3643


    Anf-03 v.iii.xxxiii Pg 5
    1 Cor. xv. 12.

    This opinion was the especial property of the Sadducees.2194

    2194 Comp. Tertull. De Resur. Carnis, xxxvi.

    A part of it, however, is maintained by Marcion and Apelles and Valentinus, and all other impugners of the resurrection. Writing also to the Galatians, he inveighs against such men as observed and defend circumcision and the (Mosaic) law.2195


    Anf-03 v.iv.ii.xxiv Pg 13
    Anima tenus. Comp.De Præscr. Hær. 33, where Marcion, as well as Apelles, Valentinus, and others, are charged with the Sadducean denial of the resurrection of the flesh, which is censured by St. Paul, 1 Cor. xv. 12.

    but lost in their body, which, according to him, does not rise again. Now, whence comes this halving of salvation, if not from a failure of goodness? What could have been a better proof of a perfect goodness, than the recovery of the whole man to salvation? Totally damned by the Creator, he should have been totally restored by the most merciful god. I rather think that by Marcion’s rule the body is baptized, is deprived of marriage,2630


    Anf-03 Pg 4
    1 Cor. xv. 12.

    let us first inquire how some persons then denied it. No doubt in the same way in which it is even now denied, since the resurrection of the flesh has at all times men to deny it. But many wise men claim for the soul a divine nature, and are confident of its undying destiny, and even the multitude worship the dead5583

    5583 See his treatise, De Resur. Carnis, chap. i. (Oehler).

    in the presumption which they boldly entertain that their souls survive. As for our bodies, however, it is manifest that they perish either at once by fire or the wild beasts,5584

    5584 An allusion to the deaths of martyrs.

    or even when most carefully kept by length of time. When, therefore, the apostle refutes those who deny the resurrection of the flesh, he indeed defends, in opposition to them, the precise matter of their denial, that is, the resurrection of the body. You have the whole answer wrapped up in this.5585

    5585 Compendio.

    All the rest is superfluous. Now in this very point, which is called the resurrection of the dead, it is requisite that the proper force of the words should be accurately maintained.5586

    5586 Defendi.

    The word dead expresses simply what has lost the vital principle,5587

    5587 Animam.

    by means of which it used to live. Now the body is that which loses life, and as the result of losing it becomes dead. To the body, therefore, the term dead is only suitable. Moreover, as resurrection accrues to what is dead, and dead is a term applicable only to a body, therefore the body alone has a resurrection incidental to it. So again the word Resurrection, or (rising again), embraces only that which has fallen down. “To rise,” indeed, can be predicated of that which has never fallen down, but had already been always lying down. But “to rise again” is predicable only of that which has fallen down; because it is by rising again, in consequence of its having fallen down, that it is said to have re-risen.5588

    5588 The reader will readily see how the English fails to complete the illustration with the ease of the Latin, “surgere,” “iterum surgere,” “resurgere.”

    For the syllable RE always implies iteration (or happening again). We say, therefore, that the body falls to the ground by death, as indeed facts themselves show, in accordance with the law of God. For to the body it was said, (“Till thou return to the ground, for out of it wast thou taken; for) dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.”5589


    Anf-03 v.viii.xlviii Pg 4
    1 Cor. xv. 12–18.

    Now, what is the point which he evidently labours hard to make us believe throughout this passage? The resurrection of the dead, you say, which was denied: he certainly wished it to be believed on the strength of the example which he adduced—the Lord’s resurrection. Certainly, you say. Well now, is an example borrowed from different circumstances, or from like ones?  From like ones, by all means, is your answer. How then did Christ rise again? In the flesh, or not? No doubt, since you are told that He “died according to the Scriptures,”7624


    Anf-03 v.viii.xlviii Pg 9
    Ver. 23.

    because of course it will be also every man in his own body. For the order will be arranged severally, on account of the individual merits. Now, as the merits must be ascribed to the body, it must needs follow that the order also should be arranged in respect of the bodies, that it may be in relation to their merits. But inasmuch as “some are also baptized for the dead,”7629


    Anf-01 iv.ii.ii Pg 8
    Comp 1 Cor. vi. 14; 2 Cor. iv. 14; Rom. viii. 11.

    up us also, if we do His will, and walk in His commandments, and love what He loved, keeping ourselves from all unrighteousness, covetousness, love of money, evil speaking, false witness; “not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing,”351


    Anf-03 iv.v.xxvi Pg 6
    2 Cor. iv. 14.

    Anf-03 Pg 59
    2 Cor. iv. 14.

    He says, too, that “our outward man perishes,”5736


    Anf-03 v.viii.xliv Pg 10
    Ver. 14.

    risen as He is already from the dead.  But perhaps “with Him” means “like Him:” well then, if it be like Him, it is not of course without the flesh.
