Chapter XXIV.—God Continually Shows Us in Nature that There Will Be a Resurrection.

Let us consider, beloved, how the Lord continually proves to us that there shall be a future resurrection, of which He has rendered the Lord Jesus Christ41144114    I. omits “Christ.” the first-fruits41154115    Comp. 1 Cor. xv. 20; Col. i. 18. by raising Him from the dead.  Let us contemplate, beloved, the resurrection which is at all times41164116    I. κατὰ καιρόν (in due season). taking place.  Day and night declare to us a resurrection.  The night sinks to sleep, and the day arises; the day [again] departs, and the night comes on.  Let us behold41174117    I. λάβωμεν (let us take). the fruits [of the earth], how the sowing of grain takes place.  The sower41184118    Comp. Luke viii. 5. goes forth, and casts it into the ground,41194119    I. adds ἓκαστον τῶν σπερμάτων (the seeds severally.) and the seed being thus scattered, though dry and naked when it fell upon the earth, is gradually dissolved.  Then out of its dissolution the mighty power of the providence of the Lord raises it up again, and from one seed many arise and bring forth fruit.
