48As was the man of dust, so are those who are of the dust; and as is the man of heaven, so are those who are of heaven.

48. As is the earthy—namely, Adam.

they … that are earthy—All Adam's posterity in their natural state (Joh 3:6, 7).

the heavenly—Christ.

they … that are heavenly—His people in their regenerate state (Php 3:20, 21). As the former precedes the latter state, so the natural bodies precede the spiritual bodies.
