1 Corinthians 15:12–28
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. 20 But now his Christ risen from the dead, and ibecome the firstfruits of them that fslept. 21 For ksince by man came death, lby man came also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For mas in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. 23 But every man in his own order: iChrist the firstfruits; nafterward they that are Christ’s oat his coming. 24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up pthe kingdom to ppGod, even the Father; when he shall have qput down all rrule and all authority and rpower. 25 For he must reign, still he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy that shall be qtdestroyed is death. 27 For uhe hath put all things under his feet. But when whe saith, all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. 28 And when xall things shall be subdued unto him, then yshall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
