Bible Readings:

1 Corinthians 15

Sermon Outline:

1 Corinthians 15:1–4 (NKJV)

1Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand,

2by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.

3For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,

4and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,

I  The resurrection of Christ and the resurrection of Christ’s people are really one event in two stages!

II How can this be?  The nature of the resurrection body

III  The consequences of believing this Gospel doctrine

1 Jesus lives, and so shall I.
Death! thy sting is gone forever!
He who deigned for me to die,
lives, the bands of death to sever.
He shall raise me from the dust:
Jesus is my hope and trust.

3 Jesus lives, and by his grace,
vict’ry o’er my passions giving,
I will cleanse my heart and ways,
ever to his glory living.
Me he raises from the dust:
Jesus is my hope and trust.
