Bible: 1 Cor 15:3-11

15:3 For I passed on to you as of first importance 1  what I also received – that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures, 15:4 and that he was buried, and that he was raised 2  on the third day according to the scriptures, 15:5 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 15:6 Then he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters 3  at one time, most of whom are still alive, 4  though some have fallen asleep. 5  15:7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. 15:8 Last of all, as though to one born at the wrong time, 6  he appeared to me also. 15:9 For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me has not been in vain. In fact, I worked harder than all of them – yet not I, but the grace of God with me. 15:11 Whether then it was I or they, this is the way we preach and this is the way you believed.
