15 Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospelw I preached to you,x which you received and on which you have taken your stand. 2 By this gospel you are saved,y if you hold firmlyz to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.
3 For what I receiveda I passed on to youb as of first importancea: that Christ died for our sinsc according to the Scriptures,d 4 that he was buried,e that he was raisedf on the third dayg 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 apostleso and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecutedp the church of God.q 10 But by the gracer of God I am what I am, and his grace to mes was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of themt—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.
Or you at the first
That is, Peter
