  • 8.      1  Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand.  2  By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.     3  For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,  4  that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures…. -1 Corinthians 15:1-4

  • 11.      12  But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?   13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised.  14  And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith…. -1 Corinthians 15:12-14
  • 12.      16  ….For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either.  17  And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.  18  Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost.  19  If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied. -1 Corinthians 15:16-19
  • 13.      16  ….For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either.  17  And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.  18  Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost.  19  If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied. But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead… -1 Corinthians 15:16-20a
