The Resurrection of Christ

1 Corinthians 15

1 Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel a which I preached to you, which also you received and b in which you stand, 2 c by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you - unless d you believed in vain.

3 For e I delivered to you first of all that f which I also received: that Christ died for our sins g according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day h according to the Scriptures, 5 i and that He was seen by 1 Cephas, then j by the twelve. 6 After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have 2 fallen asleep. 7 After that He was seen by James, then k by all the apostles. 8 l Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time. 9 For I am m the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because n I persecuted the church of God. 10 But o by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, p yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. 11 Therefore, whether it was I or they, so we preach and so you believed.
