The Fact of Christ's Resurrection

(cf. Mar 16:9–20 )
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:1 - Now I declare to you, brothers, the Good News which I preached to you, which also you received, in which you also stand,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:2 - by which also you are saved, if you hold firmly the word which I preached to you -- unless you believed in vain.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:3 - For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Messiah died for our sins according to the Scriptures,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:4 - that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:5 - and that he appeared to Kefa, then to the twelve.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:6 - Then he appeared to over five hundred brothers at once, most of whom remain until now, but some have also fallen asleep.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:7 - Then he appeared to Ya`akov, then to all the apostles,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:8 - and last of all, as to the child born at the wrong time, he appeared to me also.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:9 - For I am the least of the apostles, who is not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the assembly of God.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:10 - But by the grace of God I am what I am. His grace which was bestowed on me was not futile, but I worked more than all of them; yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:11 - Whether then it is I or they, so we preach, and so you believed.
(cf. 1Th 4:13–18 )
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:12 - Now if Messiah is preached, that he has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:13 - But if there is no resurrection of the dead, neither has Messiah been raised.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:14 - If Messiah has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain, and your faith also is in vain.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:15 - Yes, we are found false witnesses of God, because we testified about God that he raised up Messiah, whom he didn't raise up, if it is so that the dead are not raised.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:16 - For if the dead aren't raised, neither has Messiah been raised.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:17 - If Messiah has not been raised, your faith is vain; you are still in your sins.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:18 - Then they also who are fallen asleep in Messiah have perished.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:19 - If we have only hoped in Messiah in this life, we are of all men most pitiable.

The Order of Resurrection

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:20 - But now Messiah has been raised from the dead. He became the first fruits of those who are asleep.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:21 - For since death came by man, the resurrection of the dead also came by man.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:22 - For as in Adam all die, so also in Messiah all will be made alive.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:23 - But each in his own order: Messiah the first fruits, then those who are Messiah's, at his coming.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:24 - Then the end comes, when he will deliver up the Kingdom to God, even the Father; when he will have abolished all rule and all authority and power.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:25 - For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:26 - The last enemy that will be abolished is death.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:27 - For, "He put all things in subjection under his feet." But when he says, "All things are put in subjection," it is evident that he is excepted who subjected all things to him.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:28 - When all things have been subjected to him, then the Son will also himself be subjected to him who subjected all things to him, that God may be all in all.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:29 - Or else what will they do who are immersed for the dead? If the dead aren't raised at all, why then are they immersed for the dead?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:30 - Why do we also stand in jeopardy every hour?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:31 - I affirm, by the boasting in you which I have in Messiah Yeshua our Lord, I die daily.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:32 - If I fought with animals at Ephesus for human purposes, what does it profit me? If the dead are not raised, then "let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die."
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:33 - Don't be deceived! "Evil companionships corrupt good morals."
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:34 - Wake up righteously, and don't sin, for some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:35 - But someone will say, "How are the dead raised?" and, "With what kind of body do they come?"
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:36 - You foolish one, that which you yourself sow is not made alive unless it dies.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:37 - That which you sow, you don't sow the body that will be, but a bare grain, maybe of wheat, or of some other kind.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:38 - But God gives it a body even as it pleased him, and to each seed a body of its own.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:39 - All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one flesh of men, another flesh of animals, another of fish, and another of birds.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:40 - There are also celestial bodies, and terrestrial bodies; but the glory of the celestial differs from that of the terrestrial.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:41 - There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:42 - So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:43 - It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:44 - It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body and there is also a spiritual body.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:45 - So also it is written, "The first man, Adam, became a living soul." The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:46 - However that which is spiritual isn't first, but that which is natural, then that which is spiritual.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:47 - The first man is of the eretz, made of dust. The second man is the Lord from heaven.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:48 - As is the one made of dust, such are those who are also made of dust; and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:49 - As we have borne the image of those made of dust, let's also bear the image of the heavenly.

The Mystery of Resurrection

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:50 - Now I say this, brothers, that flesh and blood can't inherit the Kingdom of God; neither does corruption inherit incorruption.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:51 - Behold, I tell you a mystery. We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:52 - in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last shofar. For the shofar will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we will be changed.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:53 - For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:54 - But when this corruptible will have put on incorruption, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then what is written will happen: "Death is swallowed up in victory."
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:55 - "Death, where is your sting? She'ol, where is your victory?"
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:56 - The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:57 - But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 15:58 - Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the Lord's work, because you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
