But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?
And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance ° of wheat, or of some other grain:
But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

15:38 his own body. This statement is both a refutation of evolution and a confirmation of the Genesis revelation that each kind of plant was only to reproduce “after his kind” (Genesis 1:11-12). God has designed each kind and has implanted a unique genetic code in each DNA molecule that controls the reproduction process, and assures that each kind will reproduce after no other kind. See also James 3:12.

15:39 another of birds. Not only the plants but also the animals reproduce after their own kind. There is not continuity of all forms of animal and human life; as evolutionary theory supposes. This revelation is firmly supported by the distinct genetic gaps between different kinds of animals, and by the ubiquitous gaps between those same kinds in the fossil record.
