The Fact of Christ's Resurrection

1 Now 1I make known to you, brethren, the 2gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, 3in which also you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, 4if you hold fast athe word which I preached to you, 5unless you believed in vain. 3 For 6I delivered to you bas of first importance what I also received, that Christ died 7for our sins 8according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He was 9raised on the third day 10according to the Scriptures, 5 and that 11He appeared to 12Cephas, then 13to the twelve. 6 After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some 14have fallen asleep; 7 then He appeared to c15James, then to 16all the apostles; 8 and last of all, as dto one untimely born, 17He appeared to me also. 9 For I am 18the least of the apostles, eand not fit to be called an apostle, because I 19persecuted the church of God. 10 But by 20the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me did not prove vain; but I 21labored even more than all of them, yet 22not I, but the grace of God with me. 11 Whether then it was I or they, so we preach and so you believed. 12 Now if Christ is preached, that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there 23is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, not even Christ has been raised; 14 and 24if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is vain, your faith also is vain. 15 Moreover we are even found to be false witnesses of God, because we testified fagainst God that He 25raised gChrist, whom He did not raise, if in fact the dead are not raised. 16 For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised; 17 and if Christ has not been raised, your faith is worthless; 26you are still in your sins. 18 Then those also who 27have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19 If we have hoped in Christ in this life only, we are 28of all men most to be pitied.
