12 Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, bhow say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 But if there be no resurrection of the dead, cthen is Christ not risen: 14 And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. 15 Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God dthat he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not. 16 For if the dead rise not, then is not Christ raised: 17 And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; eye are yet in your sins. 18 Then they also which are ffallen asleep in Christ are perished. 19 If in this life only we have hope in Christ, gwe are of all men most miserable.
