Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel1 I preached to you,2 which you received and on which you have taken your stand.
By this gospel you are saved,3 if you hold firmly4 to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.
For what I received5 I passed on to you6 as of first importancea: that Christ died for our sins7 according to the Scriptures,84
that he was buried,9 that he was raised10 on the third day11 according to the Scriptures,125
and that he appeared to Peter,b13 and then to the Twelve.146
After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.15
