[3] The original is unclear. A typographical error is suspected. The question may also be read, “Or, can these still be had after this life? Yes”

[4] In New Testament Greek, the same root applies to the noun form of the word translated “faith,” and the verb form translated “believe.” Biblically, then, a believer is one who has saving faith in Jesus Christ.

[5] The implication is that the decay of the body in the grave or dissolution of the body by any other means is no obstacle to Almighty God, who will change the bodies of believers into a glorious body of a different nature (Matthew 22:30 $vr$PESV_Matthew 22$30.doc@00897@(ESV  $vr$e:\a_data\translations\kj3\FormattedBooks\Matthew.doc Matthew 22:30@00898@KJ3  $vr$PNASB95_Matthew 22$30.doc@00899@NASB  $vr$e:\a_data\translations\WorldEnglishBible\FormattedBooks\Matthew.doc Matthew 22:30@00900@WEB) ).

[6] The original has “Yes,” contradicting the answer above. This is surely a typographical error. The Westminster Confession of Faith, Ch. 19:2 states, “After Adam’s fall, this law continued to be a perfect rule of righteousness. As such, it was delivered by God upon Mount Sinai, in Ten Commandments.”
