1 Cor 15:21-28 is an exciting passage to preach. In just these few verses we get a summary of all of human history. Paul puts the resurrection of Jesus Christ into the context of the beginning and end of all things. And in telling this history there are some things that might have surprised us. Many will be surprised as to who is to blame, in the beginning anyway, for death coming to humanity. And many will be surprised that the last enemy is not the anti-Christ. Even many more will be surprised to see that this passage does not look forward to a future reign of Christ. But the truth, surprising as it may be for many, is so much better. And it all hinges on the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
