resurrection_n of_o this_o same_o visible_a body_n if_o you_o do_v or_o do_v not_o say_v ay_o or_o no_o say_v m._n c._n direct_o to_o the_o question_n answer_n as_o i_o tell_v thou_o then_o in_o that_o discourse_n upon_o the_o heath_n so_o i_o tell_v thou_o again_o that_o the_o man_n christ_n and_o his_o resurrection_n from_o the_o dead_a i_o own_o according_a to_o the_o scripture_n which_o thou_o say_v be_v general_a and_o nothing_o to_o the_o question_n then_o say_v i_o i_o own_o the_o resurrection_n of_o the_o body_n as_o paul_n do_v and_o mention_v his_o word_n it_o be_v sow_o a_o natural_a body_n it_o be_v raise_v a_o spiritual_a body_n it_o be_v sow_o in_o weakness_n it_o be_v raise_v in_o power_n and_o there_o be_v a_o natural_a body_n and_o there_o be_v a_o spiritual_a body_n etc._n etc._n and_o whereas_o you_o cry_v the_o self_n same_o visible_a body_n of_o flesh_n and_o bone_n you_o believe_v shall_v be_v raise_v and_o this_o be_v your_o faith_n and_o principle_n i_o do_v not_o so_o read_v it_o in_o your_o term_n in_o all_o the_o scripture_n of_o truth_n though_o you_o allege_v that_o say_n in_o ezekiel_n chap._n 37._o about_o the_o dry_a bone_n i_o will_v lay_v sinew_n upon_o you_o and_o will_v bring_v up_o flesh_n upon_o you_o and_o cover_v you_o with_o skin_n and_o put_v breath_n in_o you_o and_o you_o shall_v live_v and_o you_o shall_v know_v that_o i_o be_o the_o lord_n now_o look_v in_o the_o 11_o verse_n and_o see_v the_o mystery_n thereof_o if_o it_o be_v not_o above_o your_o reach_n for_o you_o be_v very_o near_o the_o earth_n though_o you_o talk_v so_o much_o of_o heaven_n whether_o it_o be_v not_o speak_v only_o of_o the_o restoration_n of_o the_o jew_n out_o of_o their_o captivate_v and_o dead_a state_n as_o the_o apostle_n say_v what_o shall_v the_o revive_n or_o return_v of_o they_o be_v but_o life_n from_o the_o dead_a rom._n 11.15_o consider_v well_o what_o you_o say_v and_o whereof_o you_o affirm_v for_o the_o light_n will_v make_v all_o thing_n manifest_v and_o the_o fire_n must_v try_v your_o work_n and_o we_o have_v read_v that_o fifteen_o chapter_n of_o the_o first_o epistle_n to_o the_o corinthian_n through_o and_o find_v not_o your_o word_n visible_a in_o it_o from_o the_o one_o end_n to_o the_o other_o which_o speak_v as_o much_o or_o more_o of_o the_o resurrection_n as_o any_o place_n that_o i_o know_v of_o but_o i_o find_v paul_n a_o apostle_n of_o our_o lord_n jesus_n say_v thou_o fool_n to_o such_o as_o query_v how_o be_v the_o dead_a raise_v up_o and_o with_o what_o body_n do_v they_o come_v but_o he_o do_v not_o tell_v people_n as_o you_o do_v that_o the_o same_o visible_a body_n of_o flesh_n and_o bone_n shall_v be_v raise_v up_o but_o say_v thou_o sowe_v not_o that_o body_n that_o shall_v be_v and_o in_o the_o 50th_o verse_n speak_v very_o plain_o which_o may_v be_v a_o full_a answer_n to_o your_o visible_a flesh_n and_o same_o flesh_n and_o to_o your_o shame_n now_o this_o i_o say_v brethren_n say_v he_o that_o flesh_n and_o blood_n can_v inherit_v the_o kingdom_n of_o god_n neither_o do_v corruption_n inherit_v
