Now if Christ is preached, that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead ?
But if there is no resurrection of the dead, not even Christ has been raised ;
and if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain.
Moreover we are even found to be false witnesses of God, because we testified against God that He raised Christ, whom He did not raise, if in fact the dead are not raised.
For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised ;
and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless ; you are still in your sins.
So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown a perishable body, it is raised an imperishable body;
it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory ; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power ;
it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.
