1 Corinthians 15:14-24 KJV

15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up , if so be that the dead rise not.
16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised :
18 Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished .
19 If in this life only we have hope * in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.
20 But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept .
21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
