1 Corinthians 15;49b: A hortative or future reading?

The didactical context within chapter 15 of 1 Corinthians furnishes the reason why the publishers of the Greek New Testament and the majority of exegetes preferred
the future textual variant Φopéaooµ∈v / in 1 Corinthians 15:49b instead of the hortative reading Φopéaooµ∈v- which enjoys stronger textual support. In addition to convincing text-critical arguments, discourse analytical and exegetical arguments can be put forward to show that even within the textual context the hortative reading makes good sense.
