1Co 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received. See Ac 18:8. Note the three facts which Paul declares to be the gospel, or the facts on which it rests; viz.: the death, the burial, and the resurrection. The facts Paul received by revelation as well as from men (Ga 1:12). How that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures. Isa 53:1-12 is especially exact in the outlines of our Lord's suffering. He quotes it in Lu 22:37.

Discussion for 1 Corinthians 15

  • I AM
    For the Father judges no man, but has committed all judgment unto the Son: because he is the Son of man. For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice: Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them.
  • I AM
    And they that have done good heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies that have done evil beheld them. But woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time.

    Jim, where does this say in the bible, All who are Christ's when they die their spirits all go to glory until the Resurrection and the dead lifeless body
    rests in the ground without the soul in it and we will be given a new body. We also will be able to recognize one another from the old body.
