1 Corinthians 15
From the truth of Christ's resurrection Paul inferreth the necessity of our own. Christ, the firstfruits, being raised, shall be followed in due order by those that are his; till having subdued all enemies he shall give up the kingdom to God the Father. If there be no resurrection of the dead, in vain is it for any one to risk his life, as the apostle did, continually. The manner of the resurrection. The change which shall be wrought at the last day in the bodies both of the dead and the living. An exhortation to stedfast faith and perseverance in our duty.
