Brothers and sisters, I'm making known to you the Good News which I already told you, which you received, and on which your faith is based.
In addition, you are saved by this Good News if you hold on to the doctrine I taught you, unless you believed it without thinking it over.
I passed on to you the most important points of doctrine that I had received: Christ died to take away our sins as the Scriptures predicted.
He was placed in a tomb. He was brought back to life on the third day as the Scriptures predicted.
He appeared to Cephas. Next he appeared to the twelve apostles.
Then he appeared to more than 500 believers at one time. (Most of these people are still living, but some have died.)
Next he appeared to James. Then he appeared to all the apostles.
