1 Corinthians 15:13-15 Disciples’ Literal New Testament (DLNT)

If The Dead Are Not Raised, Christ Was Not Raised, And Your Faith Is Futile

13 Now if there is no resurrection of dead ones, neither has Christ been raised. 14 And if Christ has not been raised, then our proclamation is also empty; your faith is also empty; 15 and we are even found to be false-witnesses of [a] God, because we testified against[b] God that He did raise Christ— Whom He did not raise if-indeed then dead ones are not raised.


  1. 1 Corinthians 15:15 That is, concerning.
  2. 1 Corinthians 15:15 That is, against the truth of God. Or, by; that is, under oath.

1 Corinthians 15:13-15 New International Version (NIV)

13 If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14 And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. 15 More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we have testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised.
