15:12 Now if Christ is preached that he hath been raised from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? 15:13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, neither hath Christ been raised: 15:14 and if Christ hath not been raised, then is our preaching vain, your faith also is vain. 15:15 Yea, we are found false witnesses of God; because we witnessed of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead are not raised. 15:16 For if the dead are not raised, neither hath Christ been raised: 15:17 and if Christ hath not been raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins. 15:18 Then they also that are fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 15:19 If we have only hoped in Christ in this life, we are of all men most pitiable. 15:20 But now hath Christ been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of them that are asleep. 15:21 For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. 15:22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. 15:23 But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; then they that are Christâ€™s, at his coming. 15:24 Then cometh the end, when he shall deliver up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have abolished all rule and all authority and power. 15:25 For he must reign, till he hath put all his enemies under his feet. 15:26 The last enemy that shall be abolished is death.
