"Now when this perishable puts on the imperishable, and this mortal puts on immortality, then the saying that is written will happen,
'Death has been swallowed up in victory.'"(1 Corinthians 15:54 NET Bible)
I cannot help but wonder what went through the minds of early Greeks in Corinth or Athens when Paul proclaimed the message that humans would one day "put on" immortality (ἀθανασία). For recall that the Greek gods were described as "the immortals" (Ἀθάνατοι); however, now mortals would assume immortality as a gift from God.
One question I also have about this text--although I remember the answer to my own question, I think--is what text does Paul quote in this verse. Do you remember, my friends?
