I can't believe you would want a commentary on a desert island.

There is a 3 Corinthians, where 'Paul' says all the things the real Paul did not.

'Paul' writes ' also who have been cast upon the body and bones and spirit of the Lord will rise up on that day with your flesh whole.'

The real Paul was probably kicking himself that he never thought of saying that.

Sorry, Isaac, it's true. Maybe on second thoughts I'd take the bible, but my thinking was 'if not the bible', otherwise it wouldn't have been a fair competition!

Hi Steven,
That's two comments on this blog about the same general subject in one day! Perhaps I should try to explain my own thoughts on this in a later series, and I would love to hear your thoughts.
Have you read Thiselton's commentary on 1 Cor 15? I found it helpful.
