WHAT DOES BAPTIZED FOR THE DEAD MEAN ?
« on: August 26, 2020, 02:45:54 pm »
Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead? 1 Corinthians 15:29

Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? 1 Corinthians 15:12

The apostle Paul is writing to correct the teaching of some that there is no resurrection of the dead.

For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised:

And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.

Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished. 1 Corinthians 15:16-18

Paul is asserting that if Christ is not risen those who fall asleep (die) are perished, there is no resurrection, no eternal life, only an eternal nothingness.

For has many definitions and uses. The use of for “as being” expresses the intention of it's use in 1 Corinthians 15:29.

We can then understand that the verse is asking;

what shall the baptized believers, whose hope is eternal life, do, if being baptized is for nothing; since there is no hope, all there is, is death: what shall they do if they are baptized as being dead.
