NAU 1 Corinthians 15:50: “Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.”
In English a dead person cannot inherit anything. Actually the dead persons property is inherited by those still alive. In both Greek (NT) and Hebrew (OT) the word translated “inherit” frequently simply means “possess”. By understanding the Bible language we can restate the text to “flesh and blood cannot possess the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable possess the imperishable”.
KJV Numbers 13:30 “And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.
The idiomatic phrase “flesh and blood” is used to describe living human beings. Notice how Jesus used this expression in Matthew 16:17.
“And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.” Obviously, God is not “flesh and blood”.
Paul used the expression 4 times including 1 Corinthians 15:50.
Galatians 1:16 , “immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood: 17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia..” Here Paul is referring to humans in contrast to God.
NAU Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places .”
Clearly this separates supernatural forces from human powers.
KJV Hebrews 2:14 “Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;”
This text tells us that Jesus participated in humanity, i.e . flesh and blood.
Do we have to cease to be human to get into the kingdom?
