Tools specific to 1Co 15:1

1Co 15:1

Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:2

1Co 15:2

By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:3

1Co 15:3

For what I received I passed on to you as of first importancefn: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,

Tools specific to 1Co 15:4

1Co 15:4

that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,

Tools specific to 1Co 15:5

1Co 15:5

and that he appeared to Cephas,fn and then to the Twelve.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:6

1Co 15:6

After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:7

1Co 15:7

Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles,

Tools specific to 1Co 15:8

1Co 15:8

and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:9

1Co 15:9

For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:10

1Co 15:10

But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:11

1Co 15:11

Whether, then, it is I or they, this is what we preach, and this is what you believed.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:12

1Co 15:12

But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?

Tools specific to 1Co 15:13

1Co 15:13

If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:14

1Co 15:14

And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:15

1Co 15:15

More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:16

1Co 15:16

For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:17

1Co 15:17

And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:18

1Co 15:18

Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:19

1Co 15:19

If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:20

1Co 15:20

But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:21

1Co 15:21

For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:22

1Co 15:22

For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:23

1Co 15:23

But each in turn: Christ, the firstfruits; then, when he comes, those who belong to him.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:24

1Co 15:24

Then the end will come, when he hands over the kingdom to God the Father after he has destroyed all dominion, authority and power.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:25

1Co 15:25

For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:26

1Co 15:26

The last enemy to be destroyed is death.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:27

1Co 15:27

For he “has put everything under his feet.”fn Now when it says that “everything” has been put under him, it is clear that this does not include God himself, who put everything under Christ.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:28

1Co 15:28

When he has done this, then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:29

1Co 15:29

Now if there is no resurrection, what will those do who are baptized for the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why are people baptized for them?

Tools specific to 1Co 15:30

1Co 15:30

And as for us, why do we endanger ourselves every hour?

Tools specific to 1Co 15:31

1Co 15:31

I face death every day—yes, just as surely as I boast about you in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:32

1Co 15:32

If I fought wild beasts in Ephesus with no more than human hopes, what have I gained? If the dead are not raised, “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.”fn

Tools specific to 1Co 15:33

1Co 15:33

Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character.”fn

Tools specific to 1Co 15:34

1Co 15:34

Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God—I say this to your shame.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:35

1Co 15:35

But someone will ask, “How are the dead raised? With what kind of body will they come?”

Tools specific to 1Co 15:36

1Co 15:36

How foolish! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:37

1Co 15:37

When you sow, you do not plant the body that will be, but just a seed, perhaps of wheat or of something else.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:38

1Co 15:38

But God gives it a body as he has determined, and to each kind of seed he gives its own body.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:39

1Co 15:39

Not all flesh is the same: People have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds another and fish another.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:40

1Co 15:40

There are also heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies; but the splendor of the heavenly bodies is one kind, and the splendor of the earthly bodies is another.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:41

1Co 15:41

The sun has one kind of splendor, the moon another and the stars another; and star differs from star in splendor.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:42

1Co 15:42

So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable;

Tools specific to 1Co 15:43

1Co 15:43

it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;

Tools specific to 1Co 15:44

1Co 15:44

it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:45

1Co 15:45

So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”fn; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:46

1Co 15:46

The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:47

1Co 15:47

The first man was of the dust of the earth; the second man is of heaven.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:48

1Co 15:48

As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the heavenly man, so also are those who are of heaven.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:49

1Co 15:49

And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall wefn bear the image of the heavenly man.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:50

1Co 15:50

I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:51

1Co 15:51

Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed—

Tools specific to 1Co 15:52

1Co 15:52

in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:53

1Co 15:53

For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:54

1Co 15:54

When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”fn

Tools specific to 1Co 15:55

1Co 15:55

“Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?”fn

Tools specific to 1Co 15:56

1Co 15:56

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:57

1Co 15:57

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Tools specific to 1Co 15:58

1Co 15:58

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
