“They Have Become Immortal”

Brant Gardner

In addition to the perfection of our self-perception, Jacob notes that we come to the judgement bar as immortal. At this point, we are already resurrected, which was his topic in verse 13. Thus the order of things according to Jacob is that we die and the body and spirit are separated. We are resurrected and the body and spirit are brought back together. We come to an understanding of our relative state before God, and then we approach the bar of justice, but be judged "according to the holy judgment of God."
