|CELESTIAL BODIES |
Paul contrasted celestial bodies (sun, moon, and stars) with terrestrial bodies in explaining the difference between the present human body (physical) and the resurrection body (spiritual body,
1 Corinthians 15:35-50). The two types of bodies are of an entirely different nature; one weak and perishing, the other glorious and eternal.
