Christ is risen!
And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and our very faith is in pointless.
We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testify that God raised Christ….
For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised.
And if Christ has not been raised, our faith is futile and we are still in our sins.
Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished.
If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied.
Christ has been raised from the dead,
the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.
For as by a man came death,
by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead.
For as in Adam all die, so also
shall all be made
He's risen indeed!
