1 Corinthians 15: Paul reminds us of the gospel that saves. (vss. 1-2) He says that the first priority is that Christ died, was buried, and raised, just like God predicted. (vss. 3-4) Many times he appeared to the apostles, lastly to Paul. (vss. 5-8) Paul was unworthy because he attacked the Church but God’s grace helped him to work hard at preaching. And you believed. (vss. 9-11)
The resurrection of Christ (1-11); the resurrection of the dead (12-34); the resurrection of the body (35-41); Mystery and Victory (42-58);
Be strong and steady, always enthusiastic, nothing is ever useless for the Lord.
‘For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you— unless you believed in vain.’ (1 Corinthians 15:1-4)
