1 Corinthians 15:1-32 Revised Geneva Translation (RGT)
15 Moreover brothers, I declare to you the Gospel which I preached to you, which you have also received, and wherein you continue,
2 And whereby you are saved, if you keep in memory the word which I preached to you, unless you have believed in vain.
3 For first of all, I delivered to you that which I received, how that Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures.
4 And that He was buried, and that He arose the third day, according to the Scriptures.
5 And that He was seen by Cephas, then by the Twelve.
6 After that, He was seen by more than five hundred brothers at once, of whom many remain to this time, and some also are asleep.
7 After that, He was seen by James, then by all the Apostles.
8 And last of all he was seen also by me, as by one born at the wrong time.
9 For I am the least of the Apostles, who is not fit to be called an Apostle, because I persecuted the Church of God.
10 But by the grace of God I am that I am. And His grace which is in me, was not in vain. But I labored more abundantly than they all; yet not I, but the grace of God which is with me.
11 Therefore, whether it was me or them, so we preach and so have you believed.
12 Now if it is preached that Christ is risen from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?
13 For if there is no resurrection of the dead, then Christ is not risen.
14 And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is vain, and your faith is also vain.
15 And we are found also false witnesses of God. For we have testified of God, that He has raised up Christ, Whom He has not raised up, if it be so that the dead are not raised.
16 For if the dead are not raised, then Christ is not raised.
17 And if Christ is not raised, your faith is vain. You are still in your sins.
18 And so those who are asleep in Christ, have perished.
19 If it is only in this life that we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most miserable.
20 But now Christ has been raised from the dead and made the firstfruits of those who slept.
21 For since by man came death, by man also came the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
23 Yet, each in his own order: the Firstfruits, Christ; afterward, those who are of Christ, at His coming.
24 Then, the end, when He has delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when He has abolished all rule, and all authority and power.
25 For He must reign till He has put all His enemies under His feet.
26 The last enemy that shall be ended, is death.
27 For He has subjected all things under His feet. (And when He says that all things are subjected, it is obvious that He is excepted, Who subjected all things under Himself.)
28 And when all things shall be subjected to Him, then shall the Son also, Himself, be subject to Him, Who subjected all things under Him, so that God may be all in all.
29 Or else what shall they do who are baptized for dead? If the dead do not rise at all, why then are they baptized for dead?
30 Why are we also in danger every hour?
31 By your rejoicing, which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.
32 If, after the habit of man, I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantage is it to me, if the dead are not raised up? Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we shall die.
