rx a nd Soma in the New Testament
A Study Compiled by Daniel Yordy
This document contains every New Testament Scripture containing the Greek word "sarx,"
usually translated "flesh," and the Greek word "soma," usually translated "body," along with their close derivatives.
The purpose of the study is to arrive at a true definition of God's purpose for our own sarx
and soma by seeing how the Spirit of God uses those terms in context. There is a huge advantage to us in changing the word "flesh" to the original Greek word, "sarx." Most Biblical words have picked up innumerable "interpretations" and "definitions" along the way, many of them religious and limited by our own experience and the traditions of men. No matter how hard we try, we always impose those definitions on the Biblical words. In this context, the word "sarx" carries no such baggage. Therefore, you are free to draw a meaning ONLY from the context.
Understand that all words of all languages derive their meaning from the context. There are
no "original" dictionaries. All dictionary writers study a particular word as it is used by many authors in many settings to seek a definition of that word in context.
Too often, Biblical words have picked up definitions that are in complete opposition to the
actual meaning of the word as God uses it.
Notice, in particular, that, although the sarx can have negative connotations, it is also the
place where the life of Christ is revealed. Notice, also the central role that our soma, our physical body, has in the salvation of God.
Finally, just exactly what does God say about my own physical body, that "body" that God has
recreated in me through which I interact with and communicate with and touch and move in the physical side of the universe - the earth?
It is evident that learning to live and walk and move out from our spirits into all the realms of
heaven in which we live is a central element of the gospel and of our salvation. We see ourselves almost entirely as a soul living and moving in a physical body. God redeems our physical body and intends to reveal Christ in our flesh. But the only way that will happen is as we wake up, open our eyes to the reality that we also have a spirit, and that our spirit is as real as our body.
God has given us, as humans, two bodies. Our physical body is that part of us that lives and
moves in the earth. Our spirit is that part of us that lives and moves in heaven right now.
Jesus said, "They kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." The fulfillment
of this reality begins in us with the glory of God that is in our spirit entering into and transforming our physical body - heaven invading earth.
Allow God to speak to you through His Pneuma to enlarge your understanding of the glory
Notice that I have left the word "spirit" as "pneuma" when it appears in a relevant context
29 If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it
from you; for it is more profitable for
you that one of your members perish, than for your whole soma
to be cast into Gehenna. 30 And if
your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it
from you; for it is more profitable for you
that one of your members perish, than for your whole soma
to be cast into Gehenna.
22 “The lamp of the soma
is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of
light. 23 But if your eye is bad, your whole soma
will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is
in you is darkness, how great is
that darkness!25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink;
nor about your soma
, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the soma
28 And do not fear those who kill the soma
but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able
to destroy (lose) both soul and soma
10 So he sent and had John beheaded in prison. 11 And his head was brought on a platter and given to
the girl, and she brought it
to her mother. 12 Then his disciples came and took away the soma
buried it, and went and told Jesus.
17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for sarx
and blood has not
to you, but My Father who is in heaven.
5 and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and
the two shall become one sarx
’? 6 So then, they are no longer two but one sarx
. Therefore what God
has joined together, let not man separate.”
22 And unless those days were shortened, no sarx
would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days
will be shortened.
12 For in pouring this fragrant oil on My soma
, she did it
for My burial.
26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it,
and gave it
to the disciples and
said, “Take, eat; this is My soma
41 Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is
willing, but the sarx is
52 and the graves were opened; and many soma
s of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised;
58 This man went to Pilate and asked for the soma
of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded the body to be
given to him. 59 When Joseph had taken the soma
, he wrapped it in a clean linen cloth, 60 and laid it
in his new tomb which he had hewn out of the rock; and he rolled a large stone against the door of
the tomb, and departed.Mark
29 Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her soma
that she was healed
of the affliction.
8 and the two shall become one sarx
’; so then they are no longer two, but one sarx
. 9 Therefore
what God has joined together, let not man separate.
20 And unless the Lord had shortened those days, no sarx
would be saved; but for the elect’s sake,
whom He chose, He shortened the days.
8 She has done what she could. She has come beforehand to anoint My soma
22 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, blessed and broke it,
and gave it
to them and said,
“Take, eat; this is My soma
38 Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is
willing, but the soma is
43 Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent council member, who was himself waiting for the kingdom of
God, coming and taking courage, went in to Pilate and asked for the soma
45 So when he found out from the centurion, he granted the soma
Three4 as it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet, saying: “ The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
‘ Prepare the way of the LORD; Make His paths straight.
5 Every valley shall be filled And every mountain and hill brought low;
The crooked places shall be made straight
And the rough ways smooth;
6 And all sarx shall see the salvation of God.
22 And the Holy Spirit descended in somatikos
form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from
heaven which said, “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.”
34 The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is good, your whole soma
also is full of
light. But when your eye
is bad, your soma
full of darkness. 35 Therefore take heed that the
light which is in you is not darkness. 36 If then your whole soma is
full of light, having no part dark, the
will be full of light, as when the bright shining of a lamp gives you light.”
4 “And I say to you, My friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the soma
, and after that have no
more that they can do.
22 Then He said to His disciples, “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will
eat; nor about the soma
, what you will put on. 23 Life is more than food, and the soma is more
37 And they answered and said to Him, “Where, Lord?” So He said to them, “Wherever the soma
there the eagles will be gathered together.”
19 And He took bread, gave thanks and broke it,
and gave it
to them, saying, “This is My soma
is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”
52 This man went to Pilate and asked for the soma
55 And the women who had come with Him from Galilee followed after, and they observed the tomb
and how His soma
3 Then they went in and did not find the soma
of the Lord Jesus.
23 When they did not find His soma
, they came saying that they had also seen a vision of angels who
said He was alive.
37 But they were terrified and frightened, and supposed they had seen a pneuma
. 38 And He said to
them, “Why are you troubled? And why do doubts arise in your hearts? 39 Behold My hands and My
feet, that it is I Myself. Handle Me and see, for a pneuma
does not have sarx
and bones as you see I
12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who
believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the sarx
, nor of the will of
man, but of God.
14 And the Word became sarx
and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only
begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
20 Then the Jews said, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and will You raise it up in
three days?” 21 But He was speaking of the temple of His soma
5 Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the pneuma
cannot enter the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the sarx
, and that which is born of
. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The pneuma
blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where
it goes. So is everyone who is born of the pneuma
51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live
forever; and the bread that I shall give is My sarx
, which I shall give for the life of the world.” 52 The
Jews therefore quarreled among themselves, saying, “How can this Man give us His sarx
53 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the sarx
of the Son of Man
and drink His blood, you have no life in you. 54 Whoever eats My sarx
and drinks My blood has
eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For My sarx
is food indeed, and My blood is
drink indeed. 56 He who eats My sarx
and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.
then if you should see the Son of Man ascend where He was before? 63 It is the pneuma
gives life; the sarx
profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are pneuma
, and they
15 You judge according to the sarx
; I judge no one. 16 And yet if I do judge, My judgment is true; for
I am not alone, but I am
with the Father who sent Me.
2 as You have given Him authority over all sarx
, that He should give eternal life to as many as You
have given Him.
30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave
up His pneuma
31 Therefore, because it was the Preparation Day,
that the soma
s should not remain on the cross on
the Sabbath (for that Sabbath was a high day), the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be
broken, and that
they might be taken away.
38 After this, Joseph of Arimathea, being a disciple of Jesus, but secretly, for fear of the Jews, asked
Pilate that he might take away the soma
of Jesus; and Pilate gave him
permission. So he came and
took the soma
of Jesus. 39 And Nicodemus, who at first came to Jesus by night, also came, bringing
a mixture of myrrh and aloes, about a hundred pounds. 40 Then they took the soma
of Jesus, and
bound it in strips of linen with the spices, as the custom of the Jews is to bury.
12 And she saw two angels in white sitting, one at the head and the other at the feet, where the soma
of Jesus had lain.
Two17 ‘ And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,
That I will pour out of My Spirit on all sarx;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your young men shall see visions,
Your old men shall dream dreams.
‘ I foresaw the LORD always before my face,
For He is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken.
26 Therefore my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad;
Moreover my sarx also will rest in hope.
27 For You will not leave my soul in Hades,
Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.
30 Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit
of his body, according to the flesh, He would raise up the Christ to sit on his throne, 31 he,
foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that His soul was not left in Hades,
nor did His sarx
see corruption. 32 This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are all witnesses.
40 But Peter put them all out, and knelt down and prayed. And turning to the soma
“Tabitha, arise.” And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter she sat up.Romans
3 concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the sarx
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their
s among themselves
28 For he is not a Jew who is one
outwardly, nor is
circumcision that which is
outward in the sarx
but he is
a Jew who is one
inwardly; and circumcision is that
of the heart, in the pneuma
, not in the
letter; whose praise is
not from men but from God.
20 Therefore by the deeds of the law no sarx
will be justified in His sight, for by the law is
knowledge of sin.
1 What then shall we say that Abraham our father has found according to the sarx
? 2 For if Abraham
was justified by works, he has something
to boast about, but not before God.
19 And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own soma
, already dead (since he was about
a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. 20 He did not waver at the promise of God
through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God,
6 knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him,
that the soma
of sin might be done away
with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.
12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal soma
, that you should obey it in its lusts.
19 I speak in human terms
because of the weakness of your sarx
4 Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law through the soma
of Christ, that
you may be married to another—to Him who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to
God. 5 For when we were in the sarx
, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at
work in our members to bear fruit to death. 6 But now we have been delivered from the law, having
died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the pneuma
and not in
oldness of the letter.
14 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am sarkikos
, sold under sin.
18 For I know that in me (that is, in my sarx
) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how
to perform what is good I do not find.
24 O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this soma
of death? 25 I thank God—through
Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the sarx
1 There is
therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk
according to the sarx
, but according to the pneuma
. 2 For the law of the pneuma
of life in Christ
Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the sarx
, God did
by sending His own
Son in the likeness of sinful sarx
, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the sarx
, 4 that the
righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the sarx
according to the pneuma
5 For those who live according to the sarx
set their minds on the things of the sarx
, but those who
according to the pneuma
, the things of the pneuma
. 6 For to be sarx
death, but to be pneuma
life and peace. 7 Because the sarx
enmity against God; for it is not
subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. 8 So then, those who are in the sarx
9 But you are not in the sarx
but in the pneuma
, if indeed the pneuma
of God dwells in you. Now if
anyone does not have the pneuma
of Christ, he is not His.
10 And if Christ is
in you, the soma is
dead because of sin, but the pneuma is
life because of
righteousness. 11 But if the pneuma
of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who
raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal soma
s through His pneuma
12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors—not to the sarx
, to live according to the sarx
. 13 For if you
live according to the sarx
you will die; but if by the pneuma
you put to death the deeds of the soma
, you will live. 14 For as many as are led by the pneuma
of God, these are sons of God.
23 Not only that,
but we also who have the firstfruits of the pneuma
, even we ourselves groan
within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our soma
3 For I could wish that I myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my countrymen
according to the sarx
5 of whom are
the fathers and from whom, according to the sarx
, Christ came,
who is over all, the
eternally blessed God. Amen.
8 That is, those who are
the children of the sarx
, these are
not the children of God; but the children
of the promise are counted as the seed.
14 if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are
and save some of them.
1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your soma
s a living
sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is
your reasonable service.
4 For as we have many members in one soma
, but all the members do not have the same function, 5
so we, being
many, are one soma
in Christ, and individually members of one another.
14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the sarx
, to fulfill its
27 It pleased them indeed, and they are their debtors. For if the Gentiles have been partakers of
their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister to them in sarkikos
26 For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the sarx
, not many mighty,
not many noble, are called.
29 that no sarx
should glory in His presence. 30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus,
1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual people
but as to sarkikos
, as to babes in
Christ. 2 I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it,
and even now you are still not able; 3 for you are still sarkikos
. For where there are
envy, strife, and
divisions among you, are you not sarkikos
and behaving like mere
men? 4 For when one says, “I am
of Paul,” and another, “I am
of Apollos,” are you not sarkikos
3 For I indeed, as absent in soma
but present in spirit, have already judged (as though I were
present) him who has so done this deed.
5 deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the sarx
, that his spirit may be saved in the day
of the Lord Jesus.
Six13 Foods for the stomach and the stomach for foods, but God will destroy both it and them. Now the
not for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the soma
. 14 And God both
raised up the Lord and will also raise us up by His power.
15 Do you not know that your soma
s are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ
and make them
members of a harlot? Certainly not! 16 Or do you not know that he who is joined to a
harlot is one soma with her?
For “the two,”
He says, “shall become one sarx.”
17 But he who is
joined to the Lord is one pneuma with Him.
18 Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the soma
, but he who commits sexual
immorality sins against his own soma
. 19 Or do you not know that your soma
is the temple of the
Holy pneuma who is
in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were
bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your soma
and in your pneuma
, which are God’s.
4 The wife does not have authority over her own soma
, but the husband does.
And likewise the
husband does not have authority over his own soma
, but the wife does.
8 But even if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned.
Nevertheless such will have trouble in the sarx
, but I would spare you.
34 There is a difference between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of
the Lord, that she may be holy both in soma
and in pneuma
11 If we have sown spiritual things for you, is it
a great thing if we reap your sarkikos
27 But I discipline my soma
and bring it
into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I
myself should become disqualified.
16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread
which we break, is it not the communion of the soma
of Christ? 17 For we, though
many, are one
; for we all partake of that one bread.
18 Observe Israel after the sarx
: Are not those who eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar?
24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it
and said, “Take, eat; this is My soma
which is broken
for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”
27 Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this
cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be
guilty of the soma
and blood of the Lord. 28 But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of
the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks
judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord’s soma
12 For as the soma
is one and has many members, but all the members of that one soma
many, are one soma
, so also is
Christ. 13 For by one pneuma
we were all baptized into one soma
whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into one pneuma
14 For in fact the soma
is not one member but many.
15 If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I am not of the soma
,” is it therefore not of the soma
? 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the soma
,” is it therefore
not of the soma
? 17 If the whole soma were
an eye, where would be
the hearing? If the whole were
hearing, where would be
the smelling? 18 But now God has set the members, each one of them, in
just as He pleased. 19 And if they were
all one member, where would
the soma be?
20 But now indeed there are
many members, yet one soma
. 21 And the eye cannot say to the hand,
“I have no need of you”; nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” 22 No, much
rather, those members of the soma
which seem to be weaker are necessary. 23 And those members
of the soma
which we think to be less honorable, on these we bestow greater honor; and our
have greater modesty, 24 but our presentable parts
have no need. But God
composed the soma
, having given greater honor to that part
which lacks it, 25 that there should be
no schism in the soma
, but that
the members should have the same care for one another. 26 And if
one member suffers, all the members suffer with it;
or if one member is honored, all the members
rejoice with it.
27 Now you are the soma
of Christ, and members individually.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor,
and though I give my soma
to be burned, but
have not love, it profits me nothing.
35 But someone will say, “How are the dead raised up? And with what soma
do they come?” 36
Foolish one, what you sow is not made alive unless it dies. 37 And what you sow, you do not sow that soma
that shall be, but mere grain—perhaps wheat or some other grain.
38 But God gives it a soma
as He pleases, and to each seed its own soma
39 All sarx is
not the same sarx
, but there is
one kind of sarx
of men, another sarx
another of fish, and
another of birds.
40 There are
also ouranios soma
s and terrestrial soma
s; but the glory of the ouranios is
of the terrestrial is
another. 41 There is
one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon,
and another glory of the stars; for one
star differs from another
star in glory.
42 So also is
the resurrection of the dead. The soma
is sown in corruption, it is raised in
incorruption. 43 It is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in
power. 44 It is sown a natural soma
, it is raised a spiritual soma
. There is a natural soma
, and there
is a spiritual soma
. 45 And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.”
a life-giving pneuma
50 Now this I say, brethren, that sarx
and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does
corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall
12 For our boasting is this: the testimony of our conscience that we conducted ourselves in the
world in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with sarkikos
wisdom but by the grace of God, and more
abundantly toward you.
17 Therefore, when I was planning this, did I do it lightly? Or the things I plan, do I plan according to
, that with me there should be Yes, Yes, and No, No?
3 clearly you are
an epistle of Christ, ministered by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the
living God, not on tablets of stone but on sarkinos
tablets, that is,
of the heart.
10 always carrying about in the soma
the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be
manifested in our soma
. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the
life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal sarx
6 So we are
always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the soma
we are absent from
the Lord. 7 For we walk by faith, not by sight. 8 We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be
absent from the soma
and to be present with the Lord.
10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done
in the soma
, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
16 Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the sarx
. Even though we have known
Christ according to the sarx
, yet now we know Him thus
1 Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the sarx
, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
5 For indeed, when we came to Macedonia, our soma
s had no rest, but we were troubled on every
side. Outside were
conflicts, inside were
2 But I beg you
that when I am present I may not be bold with that confidence by which I intend to
be bold against some, who think of us as if we walked according to the sarx
. 3 For though we walk in
, we do not war according to the sarx
. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are
but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that
exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of
Christ, 6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.
10 “For his
letters,” they say, “are
weighty and powerful, but his soma
weak, and his
18 Seeing that many boast according to the sarx
, I also will boast.
2 I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago—whether in the soma
I do not know, or whether out
of the soma
I do not know, God knows—such a one was caught up to the third heaven. 3 And I know
such a man—whether in the soma
or out of the soma
I do not know, God knows—
7 And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the sarx
was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure.
16 to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer
and blood, 17 nor did I go up to Jerusalem
16 knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we
have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of
the law; for by the works of the law no sarx
shall be justified.
20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life
which I now live in the sarx
I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
3 Are you so foolish? Having begun in the pneuma
, are you now being made perfect by the sarx
13 You know that because of physical infirmity I preached the gospel to you at the first. 14 And my
trial which was in my sarx
you did not despise or reject, but you received me as an angel of God,
as Christ Jesus.
23 But he who was
of the bondwoman was born according to the sarx
, and he of the freewoman
through promise, 24 which things are symbolic.
29 But, as he who was born according to the sarx
then persecuted him who was born
, even so it is
16 I say then: Walk in the pneuma
, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the sarx
. 17 For the sarx

against the sarx

that you do not do the things that you wish. 18 But if you are led by the pneuma
, you are not under
19 Now the works of the sarx
are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, 20
idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions,
heresies, 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just
as I also told you
in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of
24 And those who are
Christ’s have crucified the sarx
with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in
, let us also walk in the pneuma
12 As many as desire to make a good showing in the sarx
, these would
compel you to be
circumcised, only that they may not suffer persecution for the cross of Christ. 13 For not even those
who are circumcised keep the law, but they desire to have you circumcised that they may boast in

will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the pneuma
of the pneuma
reap everlasting life (the life of the age to come).
17 From now on let no one trouble me, for I bear in my soma
the marks of the Lord Jesus.
22 And He put all things
under His feet, and gave Him to be
head over all things
to the church, 23
which is His soma
, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.
1 And you He made alive,
who were dead in trespasses and sins, 2 in which you once walked
according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who
now works in the sons of disobedience, 3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the
lusts of our sarx
, fulfilling the desires of the sarx
and of the mind, and were by nature children of
wrath, just as the others.
11 Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the sarx
—who are called Uncircumcision by what
is called the Circumcision made in the sarx
14 For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of
separation, 15 having abolished in His sarx
the enmity, that is,
the law of commandments contained
in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from
the two, thus
making peace, 16 and that
He might reconcile them both to God in one soma
through the cross, thereby putting to death the

and one pneuma

Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is
above all, and through all, and in
11 And He Himself gave some to be
apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and
teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the soma
Christ— 16 from whom the whole soma
, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies,
according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the soma
the edifying of itself in love.
23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of
28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own soma
s; he who loves his wife loves
himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own sarx
, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does
the church. 30 For we are members of His soma
, of His sarx
and of His bones. 31 “For this reason a
man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one
32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
5 Bondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the sarx
, with fear and
trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ;
12 For we do not wrestle against sarx
and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against
the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts
of wickedness in the heavenly places.
20 according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all
boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my soma
, whether by life or by death. 21
For to me, to live is
Christ, and to die is
gain. 22 But if I
live on in the sarx
, this will mean
fruit from my
labor; yet what I shall choose I cannot tell. 23 For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a
desire to depart and be with Christ, which is
far better. 24 Nevertheless to remain in the sarx is
more needful for you.
3 For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the pneuma
, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no
confidence in the sarx
, 4 though I also might have confidence in the sarx
. If anyone else thinks he
may have confidence in the sarx
, I more so:
21 who will transform our lowly soma
that it may be conformed to His glorious soma
, according to
the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.Colossians
18 And He is the head of the soma
, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead,
that in all things He may have the preeminence.
21 And you, who once were alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now He has
reconciled 22 in the soma
of His sarx
through death, to present you holy, and blameless, and above
24 I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my sarx
what is lacking in the afflictions of
Christ, for the sake of His soma
, which is the church,
1 For I want you to know what a great conflict I have for you and those in Laodicea, and for
as have not seen my face in the sarx
5 For though I am absent in the sarx
, yet I am with you in pneuma
, rejoicing to see your good
and the steadfastness of your faith in Christ.
9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead somatikos
; 10 and you are complete in Him, who
is the head of all principality and power.
11 In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the soma
of the sins of the sarx
, by the circumcision of Christ,
13 And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your sarx
, He has made alive
together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,
17 which are a shadow of things to come, but the soma
is of Christ. 18 Let no one cheat you of your
reward, taking delight in false
humility and worship of angels, intruding into those things which he
has not seen, vainly puffed up by his sarx
mind, 19 and not holding fast to the Head, from whom all
, nourished and knit together by joints and ligaments, grows with the increase that is
23 These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, false
neglect of the soma
, but are
of no value against the indulgence of the sarx
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one soma
; and be
22 Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the sarx
, not with eyeservice, as men-
pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God.First Thessalonians
23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole pneuma
be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Three16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness:
God was manifested in the sarx
, Justified in the pneuma

exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of
the life that now is and of that which is to come.Philemon
16 no longer as a slave but more than a slave—a beloved brother, especially to me but how much
more to you, both in the sarx
and in the Lord.
14 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of sarx
and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the
same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15
and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
7 who, in the days of His sarx
, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement
cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear, 8 though He was a Son, yet
He learned obedience by the things which He suffered.
Seven5 And it is yet far more evident if, in the likeness of Melchizedek, there arises another priest 16 who
has come, not according to the law of a sarkikos
commandment, but according to the power of an

symbolic for the present time in which both gifts and sacrifices are offered which cannot make him who performed the service perfect in regard to the conscience— 10 concerned
foods and drinks, various washings, and sarx
ordinances imposed until the time of reformation.
13 For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for
the purifying of the sarx
, 14 how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal (of
the age to come) pneuma
offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead
works to serve the living God?Ten5 Therefore, when He came into the world, He said: “ Sacrifice and offering You did not desire,
But a soma You have prepared for Me.
10 By that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the soma
of Jesus Christ once for all.
19 Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 by a new and
living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His sarx
, 21 and having
Priest over the house of God, 22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having
our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
9 Furthermore, we have had sarx
fathers who corrected us,
and we paid them
respect. Shall we not
much more readily be in subjection to the Father of pneumas
3 Remember the prisoners as if chained with them—those who are mistreated—since you yourselves
are in the soma

in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the soma
, what does it
26 For as the soma
without the pneuma
is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
2 For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is
a perfect man, able
also to bridle the whole soma
. 3 Indeed, we put bits in horses’ mouths that they may obey us, and
we turn their whole soma
See how great a forest a little fire kindles! 6 And the tongue is
a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue
is so set among our members that it defiles the whole soma
, and sets on fire the course of nature;
and it is set on fire by Gehenna.
3 Your gold and silver are corroded, and their corrosion will be a witness against you and will eat
like fire. You have heaped up treasure in the last days.First Peter
“ All sarx is as grass,
And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.
The grass withers, And its flower falls away,
25 But the word of the LORD endures forever.”
11 Beloved, I beg you
as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from sarkikos
lusts which war against the
24 who Himself bore our sins in His own soma
on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for
righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.
18 For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being
put to death in the sarx
but made alive by the pneuma
, 19 by whom also He went and preached to
in prison, 20 who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering
waited in the days of Noah, while the
ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water. 21 There is also an antitype which now saves us—baptism (not the
removal of the filth of the sarx
, but the answer of a good conscience toward God), through the
resurrection of Jesus Christ,
1 Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the sarx
, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he
who has suffered in the sarx
has ceased from sin, 2 that he no longer should live the rest of his
in the sarx
for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.
6 For this reason the gospel was preached also to those who are dead, that they might be judged
according to men in the sarx
, but live according to God in the pneuma
10 and especially those who walk according to the sarx
in the lust of uncleanness and despise
authority. They are
presumptuous, self-willed. They are not afraid to speak evil of dignitaries,
18 For when they speak great swelling words
of emptiness, they allure through the lusts of the sarx
through lewdness, the ones who have actually escaped from those who live in error.
16 For all that is
in the world—the lust of the sarx
, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not
of the Father but is of the world.
1 Beloved, do not believe every pneuma
, but test the pneumas
, whether they are of God; because
many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the pneuma
of God: Every
spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the sarx
is of God, 3 and every pneuma
not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the sarx
is not of God. And this is the (pneuma)
Christ, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.Second John

7 as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given
themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange sarx
, are set forth as an example,
suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. 8 Likewise also these dreamers defile the sarx
authority, and speak evil of dignitaries. 9 Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil,
when he disputed about the soma
of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but
said, “The Lord rebuke you!”23 but others save with fear, pulling them
out of the fire, hating even the garment defiled by the
