The Risen Christ, Faith’s Reality


1 Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel awhich I preached to you, which also you received and bin which you stand,
2 aby which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless byou believed in vain.
3 For aI delivered to you first of all that bwhich I also received: that Christ died for our sins caccording to the Scriptures,
4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day aaccording to the Scriptures,
5 aand that He was seen by 1Cephas, then bby the twelve.
6 After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have 1fallen asleep.
7 After that He was seen by James, then aby all the apostles.
8 aThen last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.
9 For I am athe least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because bI persecuted the church of God.
10 But aby the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, byet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
11 Therefore, whether it was I or they, so we preach and so you believed.

The Risen Christ, Our Hope

12 Now if Christ is preached that He has been raised from the dead, how do some among you say that there is no resurrection of the dead?
13 But if there is no resurrection of the dead, athen Christ is not risen.
14 And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty.
15 Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because awe have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise up— if in fact the dead do not rise.
16 For if the dead do not rise, then Christ is not risen.
17 And if Christ is not risen, your

page 1013

faith is futile; ayou are still in your sins!
18 Then also those who have 1fallen aasleep in Christ have perished.
19 aIf in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable.

The Last Enemy Destroyed

20 But now aChrist is risen from the dead, and has become bthe firstfruits of those who have 1fallen asleep.
21 For asince by man came death, bby Man also came the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall abe made alive.
23 But aeach one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ’s at His coming.
24 Then comes the end, when He delivers athe kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power.
25 For He must reign atill He has put all enemies under His feet.
26 aThe last enemy that will be destroyed is death.
27 For a“He has put all things under His feet.” But when He says “all things are put under Him,” it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted.
28 aNow when all things are made subject to Him, then bthe Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.

Effects of Denying the Resurrection

29 Otherwise, what will they do who are baptized for the dead, if the dead do not rise at all? Why then are they baptized for the dead?
30 And awhy do we stand in 1jeopardy every hour?
31 I affirm, by athe boasting in you which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, bI die daily.
32 If, in the manner of men, aI have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantage is it to me? If the dead do not rise, b“Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die!”
33 Do not be deceived: a“Evil company corrupts good habits.”
34 aAwake to righteousness, and do not sin; bfor some do not have the knowledge of God. cI speak this to your shame.

A Glorious Body

35 But someone will say, a“How are the dead raised up? And with what body do they come?”
36 Foolish one, awhat you sow is not made alive unless it dies.
37 And what you sow, you do not sow that body that shall be, but mere grain—perhaps wheat or some other grain.
38 But God gives it a body as He

pleases, and to each seed its own body.
39 All flesh is not the same flesh, but there is one kind 1of flesh of men, another flesh of animals, another of fish, and another of birds.
40 There are also 1celestial bodies and 2terrestrial bodies; but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another.
41 There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory.
42 aSo also is the resurrection of the dead. The body is sown in corruption, it is raised in incorruption.
43 aIt is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness, it is raised in power.
44 It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
45 And so it is written, a“The first man Adam became a living being.” bThe last Adam became ca life-giving spirit.
46 However, the spiritual is not first, but the natural, and afterward the spiritual.
47 aThe first man was of the earth, bmade1 of dust; the second Man is 2the Lord cfrom heaven.
48 As was the 1man of dust, so also are those who are made of dust; aand as is the heavenly Man, so also are those who are heavenly.
49 And aas we have borne the image of the man of dust, bwe1 shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man.

Our Final Victory

50 Now this I say, brethren, that aflesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption.
51 Behold, I tell you a 1mystery: aWe shall not all sleep, bbut we shall all be changed—
52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. aFor the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and athis mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: a“Death is swallowed up in victory.”

55 “Oa1 Death, where is your sting? O Hades, where is your victory?”

56 The sting of death is sin, and athe strength of sin is the law.
57 aBut thanks be to God,who gives

page 1014


us bthe victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
58 aTherefore,my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing bthat your labor is not in vain in the Lord.

Collection for the Saints


1 Now concerning athe collection for the saints, as I have given orders to the churches of Galatia, so you must do also:
2 aOn the first day of the week let each one of you lay something aside, storing up as he may prosper, that there be no collections when I come.
3 And when I come, awhomever you approve by your letters I will send to bear your gift to Jerusalem.
4 aBut if it is fitting that I go also, they will go with me.

Personal Plans

5 Now I will come to you awhen I pass through Macedonia (for I am passing through Macedonia).
6 And it may be that I will remain, or even spend the winter with you, that you may asend me on my journey, wherever I go.
7 For I do not wish to see you now on the way; but I hope to stay a while with you, aif the Lord permits.
8 But I will tarry in Ephesus until aPentecost.
9 For aa great and effective door has opened to me, and bthere are many adversaries.
10 And aif Timothy comes, see that he may be with you without fear; for bhe does the work of the Lord, as I also do.
11 aTherefore let no one despise him. But send him on his journey bin peace, that he may come to me; for I am waiting for him with the brethren.

Final Exhortations

13 aWatch, bstand fast in the faith, be brave, cbe strong.
14 aLet all that you do be done with love.
15 I urge you, brethren—you know athe household of Stephanas, that it is bthe firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have devoted themselves to cthe ministry of the saints—
16 athat you also submit to such, and to everyone who works and blabors with us.
17 I am glad about the coming of Stephanas, Fortunatus, and Achaicus, afor what was lacking on your part they supplied.
18 aFor they refreshed my spirit and yours. Therefore backnowledge such men.

Greetings and a Solemn Farewell

19 The churches of Asia greet you. Aquila and Priscilla greet you heartily in the Lord, awith the church that is in their house.
20 All the brethren greet you. aGreet one another with a holy kiss.
21 aThe salutation with my own hand—Paul’s.
22 If anyone adoes not love the Lord Jesus Christ, blet him be 1accursed. cO2 Lord, come!
23 aThe grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
24 My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen.
