Resurrection of Believers Part 2
In this episode Brother Jonathan finishes talking about the resurrection. Also, the "misplaced comma" argument of Luke 23:43, a walk through 1 Corinthians 15, when the Kingdom is delivered to the Father by Christ, the timeline of the resurrection, a brief discussion of the return of Christ, the two resurrections, and the resurrection body. Resurrection of Believers Part 2 S2EP7 Remnant Bible Fellowship Intro We’ll be finishing up talking about the resurrection today, and, ironically, in a couple of weeks (Lord willing) we’ll be talking about the resurrection of Christ.

The verse in question says: “And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43) The contention is that the word “today” is supposed to be with the preceding clause “Verily I say unto thee” so that it should read “Verily I say unto thee today.” They say that a comma has been placed in the wrong spot. The point being that it separates the time aspect of when the thief on the cross would be with Christ. Essentially making the verse to mean that Christ is only saying, “I’m telling you this today that you will be with me in Paradise some day.” If this argument were true then they would have a basis for saying that this verse does not teach the separation of
