4. If Christ has not been raised, our
preaching is useless and so is your faith.

said this to them; and they believed the
Scripture and the word which Jesus had said.

down My life that I may take it again.
No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of
Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have
