The Resurrection Of Christ
15 Now, I would remind you, brothers of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand. 2 By which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you. Unless, you have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Cephas, and then to the Twelve. 6 After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at one time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, 8 and last of all as to one unltimely born. He appeared also to me. 9 For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them—though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. 11 Whether, then, it was I or they, so we preach, and so you believed.
