|1 Corinthians 15:1-8,20-21,45 |
1 Now brothers, let me remind you of the gospel that I preached to you, which you have received, and in which you stand;
2 And by which you are saved, if you keep fast what I preached to you, unless you have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received, how Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.
5 And that he was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.
6 After that, he was seen by above five hundred brothers at once; of whom the greater part remain to this present day, but some are fallen asleep [in death].
7 After that, he was seen by James and then by all the apostles.
8 And last of all he was seen by me also, as to one born out of due time.
20 But now Christ has risen from the dead, and has become the first fruits of those dead [to the life of God].
21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead.
45 And so it is written, The first man "Adam was made a living soul;" the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
