1 Corinthians 15:3-11
New International Version
3 For what I received(A) I passed on to you(B) as of first importance[a]: that Christ died for our sins(C) according to the Scriptures,(D) 4 that he was buried,(E) that he was raised(F) on the third day(G) according to the Scriptures,(H) 5 and that he appeared to Cephas,[b](I) and then to the Twelve.(J) 6 After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.(K) 7 Then he appeared to James,(L) then to all the apostles,(M) 8 and last of all he appeared to me also,(N) as to one abnormally born.
9 For I am the least of the apostles(O) and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted(P) the church of God.(Q) 10 But by the grace(R) of God I am what I am, and his grace to me(S) was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them(T)—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me.(U) 11 Whether, then, it is I or they,(V) this is what we preach, and this is what you believed.
