The resurrection of Jesus Christ (chapter 3)

Paul considered all his past gains as a circumcised Jewish person as a loss, because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ since there is more value in knowing Jesus Christ.  Thus, he had suffered many losses as if they were all rubbish.  He was able to gain Christ and have righteousness with Jesus Christ, that comes not from the law but through faith in Christ.  He wanted to know more about the power of the resurrection.  He wanted to share in Christ’s sufferings and death, but at the same time achieve the resurrection from death like Jesus Christ.
