Prior, or Out-Resurrection
By Charles H. Welch
THE PRIOR OR OUT-RESURRECTION (Phil. 3:11)
This cannot be the general resurrection. of all believers, for Paul says, "if by any means I might attain" unto it. The words of the original are ten exanastasin ten ek ton nekron, "the OUT resurrection, that which is OUT from the dead".
- Anastasis nekron the simplest expression of all. Believed by Pharisees (Acts 23 :6).
- To ek nekron anastenai "the rising out from the dead" (Mark 9:9,10). This was something new to the disciples. This new expression gives us such passages as Romans 1:4.
- Tes anastaseos tes ek nekron "the resurrection, that which is out from the dead" (Luke 20:35). This is connected with being "worthy to attain", and approaches to Philippians 3:11.
- Ten exanastasin ten ek ton nekron "the out resurrection, that which is out from dead ones" (Phil. 3:11).
