Second Reading for the 7th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year C

1 Corinthians 15:45-49

Summary: The first Adam was earthly, the last Adam (Christ) a life-giving spirit. We, once earthly, will transform to bear the likeness of the heavenly man.

From Earthly to Heavenly

Brothers and sisters: It is written, The first man, Adam, became a living being, the last Adam a life-giving spirit.

But the spiritual was not first; rather the natural and then the spiritual.

The first man was from the earth, earthly; the second man, from heaven. As was the earthly one, so also are the earthly, and as is the heavenly one, so also are the heavenly.

Just as we have borne the image of the earthly one, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly one.
